The esports landscape in the Philippines is on the brink of a significant transformation, driven by Farlight 84’s entry into the scene with a remarkable commitment of $20 million spread across 5 years.
At the heart of this initiative lies the Farlight Philippines Championship (FPC), which will implement a point system designed to ensure fairness and equal opportunities for all participants, irrespective of their initial skill levels.
Prospective Farlight esports athletes will vie for an astonishing $1 million prize pool through a series of tournaments.
Another noteworthy aspect of Farlight 84’s strategy is the introduction of automated tournaments featuring real-time ranking displays. This pioneering feature guarantees a seamless and uninterrupted gaming experience, eliminating the common hiccups and delays that can dampen the excitement of esports tournaments.
However, this journey doesn’t culminate here. Looking ahead, Farlight 84 is already alluding to the possibility of a 2024 World Cup. Exceptional players will seize the opportunity to represent the Philippines on the global stage, battling it out for supremacy and national pride.
The emerging FPS game recently hosted the Farlight 84 Philippines Summit at the Blue Leaf Cosmopolitan last Thursday, during which numerous plans for the game’s ecosystem were unveiled.
“The FARLIGHT 84 PH SUMMIT is not merely another event—it stands as a testament to FARLIGHT 84’s unwavering commitment to delivering the best to our community and players,” remarked Nelson Woon, Senior Director of Global Publishing at Farlight 84.
“As a team, we consistently strive for excellence, curating engaging and localized gaming experiences that deeply resonate with players. Our collaborations have yielded fruitful and meaningful results, further amplifying our mission to elevate gaming to new heights.”
Farlight 84 also disclosed its successful partnerships with Filipino esports teams like AP.Bren, Execration, NAOS Esports, Oasis Gaming, PlayBook Esports, and BETA Esports as part of its endeavor to establish a presence in the Philippine esports arena.
Additionally, the game has entered into a partnership with TNC to develop its grassroots program.
