TI, M series, VALORANT Masters in Manila? ‘Pwede yan sa atin,’ says Lon Marcelo

Aug 2, 2022

As it enters Phase 2 of its objectives, which includes organizing esports competitions of an international standard, PESO is aiming high.

These include the M World Series for Mobile Legends, the Masters competitions for VALORANT, and The International for Dota 2.

The Philippine Esports Organization’s executive director, Marlon “Lon” Marcelo, thinks it is quite likely.

Lon stated at a news conference just before the esports federation’s Thanksgiving night at the Hilton Manila, “We want to host international events. We’ll lead the way.”

The ex-shoutcaster continued, “TI? It’s time. Bakit sa ibang bansa, nakapag-TI? Sa Pilipinas, pwede naman e. We’ve done events previously that [are] actually world class.”

[“TI? It’s time. Why were they able to have TI in another country? It is feasible in the Philippines. We’ve done events previously that [are] actually world class.”]

International events will make up PeSO’s ‘Phase 2’

While Sibol’s development is still the major priority for now, PeSO wants the national team to serve as a stepping stone for the future.

“Definitely, as we PeSO, sooner or later, we will push for esports events in the country,” Lon remarked. 

“MPL? Might as well, yung next Mobile Legends world championship, yung sa VALORANT Masters, pwede yun sa Pinas. We will always reach for the stars. Get TI, get Masters, lahat na pwedeng gawin. Because we are an esports country.” 

[“MPL? Might as well, the next Mobile Legends world championship, the one at VALORANT Masters, can be in the Philippines. We will always reach for the stars. Get TI, get Masters, all that can be done. Because we are an esports country. “]

According to Jab Escutin, general manager of PeSO, an increase in international competitions can cause some players who are considering taking their talents abroad to take a moment to reflect on their career plans.

Escutin continued, “Bringing the biggest esports events in the country, we make sure you think twice about leaving the country.”
