Posted on 07/31/2017 by LoL PH Admin


Rampage 2017 was another record-breaking year in terms of attendance, as the lines doubled from last year’s turnout. To all Summoners who continues to share their passion and love for League of Legends, thank you for being a part of Rampage!

 
Team Manila Eagles seize PGS crown from the hands of Mineski

Mineski looked unfazed as they battled against undefeated Team Manila Eagles in the Finals. Armed with better macro skills and everything that they’ve learned in Rift Rivals, Mineski took two straight games right from the get go, 2-0, with team captain Exosen leading the way on Orianna and Taliyah.

With their backs against the wall, TME made the unthinkable and decided to put JLC on carries after making play tanks all split long. JLC did not disappoint and played probably the best games of his career on Gangplank in Game 3 and Jayce in Game 4.

In Game 5, Mineski looked completely out of their elements, and Marky grabbed the opportunity and finished them off in the final game to secure their first PGS championship title and the chance to represent the Philippines in the Garena Premier League Summer 2017.

After years of disappointment, Team Manila Eagles finally complete the road to redemption as the Bacchus Pro Gaming Series Summer 2017 champions!

 
Building Hope

Celebrities once again fought each other on the Rift in Celebrity Showmatch II. But this time around, it’s not all just fun and games for these celebrities. Aside from bragging rights, there was something bigger at stake as Garena Philippines partnered with Generation Hope to help build classrooms for public schools. To achieve this, 100% of Generation Hope’s proceed in their Hope in a Bottle during Rampage 2017 will be donated to the construction of these classrooms.

On top of that, the participants at the Celebrity Showmatch 2 were able to raise a whooping PHP 69,000 after taking down 54 champions and knocking off 3 dragons, after Team Ruby; composed of Eric “ Eruption “ Tai, Izzy Canillo, CJ Navato, Ashley Gosiengfiao, and Sinio Cagasan, fell to Team Ruby composed of Emman Nimedez, Sam Concepcion, Jack Reid, Riot Spiffy, and Sachzna.

It was Team Ruby’s Jack Reid who took the spotlight after showing off his impressive skills and mechanics on Zed, to carry his team to victory.
