With every day that passes by bring us ever closer to the much-awaited and much-hyped main event of the year for Pinoy eSports, the Pinoy Gaming Festival, the Mineski-Events Team believes that it was about time the forces qualifed for the playoffs of inaugural Dragon Nest GIGABYTE Mineski Pro-Gaming League are formally introduced to the public.

8 three-man teams, and 8 individual DN experts are set to clash this coming October 27-28 at the SMX Convention Hall 3, for the title of first ever DN GMPGL Champions.

3v3

Miwanomi (78 points) - Leading the charge would be last leg's champions, Miwanomi. By ending Tiwala Lang's championship streak at two, and being consistent throughout the entire tournament, they are heavily favored to win it all.

Tiwala Lang (68) - Closely following Miwanomi would be Oy Ie's own team, Tiwala Lang. Last 4v4 champions and first 3v3 conquerors of the DN GMPGL, they have shown that they can be very versatile. But can they quickly adapt to Miwanomi's renewed supremacy? Well, they have to if they want to take home the title.

Fidelisque (63); Pancho's Angels (61) - These two teams have the two highest numbacer of games played at the top 8 playoff stages of the various legs throughout the seasons, with 27 and 28 respectively. What does this mean? Well, on one hand, this means that they have tremendous amounts of experience under their belts, and that they have been playing consistently the entire season. The bad news, though, is that consistent may not be enough, considering that they have the most playoffs, yet they still fall behind Miwanomi and Tiwala Lang in points.

Dre (36); IGIV X (33) - Rounding off the Luzon cast would be Dre and IGIV X, two teams that have won earlier legs in the season, proving that not only can they play at the top levels, but that they can take it all the way too. Two problems they have right now though is that they have failed to follow up on their earlier 4v4 wins.

Bahala (57); Throne (27) - Teams Bahala and Throne will be representing the South of the country. Hailing from Cebu and CDO respectively, expect these two teams to do their best in order to make their trip worthwhile. Bahala is more favored to advance though, considering they are actually 5th in terms of ranking among the 8 participating teams. Throne, on the other hand, is eighth.

1v1

Because the 1v1 portion of the league is a relatively new addition, the sample size of two legs would be too small in order for us to even try to predict what's going to happen at the playoffs.

The six chosen to represent Luzon would be Wanno Santos, Meeko Ramod, Michael Llorin, Ronel Tan, and Jesson. Meanwhile, Galadriel and Earvin would be flying in from CEBU and CDO in order to challenge the elite six from the capital.

Who will come out on top for both events? Make sure you tune in for the PGF in order to find out!
