Unsurprisingly, this leg of the Gigabyte™ E-sports Tournament was dominated by Filipino teams, namely: Ledion.Dreamz.SteelSeries, Pacific.Palit, iZone.Gigabyte, and Pacific.Emaxx. An epic matchup was sure to happen and it seems that Pacific.Emaxx regained their composure as a team, and managed to grab their third GEST title, after having a slump during the previous month.
Finals came and Pacific.Emaxx and Pacific.Palit were the two remaining teams competing for the title after winning against iZone and Dreamz respectively. With the combo tandem of Stealth Assassin and Wisp during the first game, and strong carry picks of Chaos Knight and Morphling at the second game of the best of three finals, Pacific.Emaxxx proved to everyone who watched via live stream that they are back in business.
Here's an official statement by one of the team's support player, PacificDonEMAXX (Don Apuad).
Siyempre masaya kasi nakabawi kami. Medyo masakit sa damdamin maging 0-4 kasi ang hirap matulog kahit sobrang pinilit namin manalo pero ayaw talaga. Pero ngayon pinaghandaan talaga namin kasi gustong-gusto naming bumawi. For next GEST, siyempre kelangan pa rin naming magpractice, at mas lalo naming paghahandaan para madefend yung title.
Binabati ko Sponsor namin Pacific, EMAXX, ROCCAT, at Kay Ate Vange. Pati nga din pala ang Pacific.Palit,Pacific LAW, Badburn Family, Prosty, Skunky, Battlegrounds, Dreamz Family at si Boss Jus hehe!. At siyempre iZone, MSIEvoGT, Mineski, sa lahat ng PH teams, at sa lahat ng sumuporta samin salamat!
[Of course I'm happy that we came back strong. It was hard for us after having a 0-4 record last GEST. We haven't slept well after we've done everything to win but the other way around was the result. We've prepared well for this month's GEST because we wanted to redeem ourselves. We'll surely prepare ourselves for next month's GEST by continuous practice to defend our title.
I would like to thank our sponsors Pacific, EMAXX, ROCCAT, and Ms. Vange. Shououts to Pacific.Palit, Pacific.LAW, Badburn Family, Team Prosty, Skunky, Battlegrounds, Dreamz Family, and Boss Jus. Lastly, I would like to greet Team MSIEvoGT, iZone, Mineski, all the PH teams out there, and to all those who've supported us. Thank You!]
