The war between the Radiant and the Dire will finally transpire inside the walls of Letran, as the OSWD together with the Letran Student Council introduces E-games in the annual event.

According to Office of Student Welfare and Development directress Asst. Prof. Engr. Catherine Sanchez, the plan to include the most popular electronic game floated last year.

“Actually last year pa lang napag-uspan na namin, tapos nag float ‘to sa mga suggestions ng students” she said.

“Lagi naman ganun eh, we base it sa mga gusto ng students, hindi ng mga organizer, but ‘dun sa mga mag-lalaro na estudyante,” she added, as they put more importance on the participants’ request rather than the organizers’.

According to Letran Student Council president LJ Bisco, the Letran Information, Systems, Technology, and Networking (LISTeN), is their primary partner in organizing the event.

“So far, ‘yung ITMS isa siya sa mga partners namin when it comes to E-games,” Bisco said in an interview with The LANCE.

“So, with sir Winchell Palomeno saka meron siyang senator na ka-partner, si Arden Capiz saka ‘yung staff si Cho Bisco. Silang tatlo ‘yung magwo-work para mai-linya ‘yung teams,” he added.

Each team can consist of seven players in total with two being reserves. All participants in the team must be signed up for the contest.

The tournament will be composed of bracket A and B, and will be played in a three-team tournament format while the championship game will be played in a one-game format. Games will be played in a captain’s mode.

Dota 2 is a free-to-play multiplayer online battle arena video game. The goal is to defeat the enemy team by destroying all of their towers.
