Posted on 04/18/2018 by LoL PH Admin

The main goals of Southeast Asia’s (SEA) change from League-based to Cup-based esports structure is to improve the competitive landscape and unlock more opportunities for SEA teams to compete and earn prizes in multiple tournaments. The Nexus Cup will be one of many tournaments that will allow us to achieve those goals and further boost the growth of esports in our region.
