Luzon’s top League of Legends team headed out once more to Mineski Infinity Taft last Sunday, May 20, 2012 for yet another action-packed installment of the Gigabyte Mineski Pro-Gaming League 4-4 – League of Legends.
64 teams participated and took their shot at the PHP 44,000 prize pool. Glory awaited those who emerged from their respective brackets as they are taken a step closer to becoming May’s GMPGL-LOL champions. It was not surprising that Bida Gaming (BG), the defending champion from April’s leg, emerged as one of the top contenders for the highly coveted top prize. It was as if they will once again take home the glory, but fate has something in store up its sleeves..

Team Wild TNC, last leg’s 8th place, blazed their way through the eliminations to land in the Finals and challenge Bida Gaming’s reign. After a grueling best-of-3 match with a 2-1 upset, Wild TNC stopped the defending champions on their tracks towards back-to-back championship title holders and started a new reign for Wild as GMPGL – LOL’s new kings. Aside from the glory and honor of being crowned champions, Wild TNC also took home their fair share of the prize pool, bringing home the PHP 20,000 first prize and some awesome Razer goodies!
