The leading mobile communications company in the Philippines Smart Inc has officially announced that they will be holding the biggest Clash of Clan (COC) tournament to date. How big? A staggering more than Php2,000,000 pesos is in the prize pool to be given away. This makes the biggest mobile game competition to be held in the country's history. The nationwide competition is dubbed The Philippine Clash 2015.
"The COC phenomenon has hit the Philippines big time, with Filipinos from all walks of life bonding together to form clans and compete every chance they get – on the train, while stuck in traffic, or when they are just relaxing at home. It is just about time we put together the country's biggest COC tournament and provide a venue for players and fans alike to showcase their skills in the spirit of friendly competition," said Mellissa Limcaoco, head of Smart's Innovation and Product Development Group.
To make this country-wide competition a reality, Smart Communications Inc is partnering with the biggest names in the Philippines' gaming field and those include The Philippine eSports Organization, Inquirer eSports, SM Cyberzone and the Philippine Clash of Clans Battleground, the largest online community of COC players in the PH.
Mellissa Limcaoco also added, "This is very much a part of our push to elevate gaming into a form of competitive sports, extolling good values like discipline, and team work in fun-filled arena."
All Smart postpaid, prepaid and SmartBro subscribers are welcome to join. These teams and players from every part of the county can expect a series of elimination legs to be held in key cities like Baguio, Batangas, Cebu, Davao and Metro Manila before clashing together for a one big final event in October.
Not only that, Smart has even invited representatives from Supercell which is the company based in Finland behind this super worldwide successful Clash of Clans mobile game. Together with Supercell people, gamers can also expect popular COC players and Youtubers Chief Pat and Galadon to be part of these series of events. But wait, there is still more! To make the entire event even more fun-filled for everybody than ever, these legs will as well feature activities like tutorials, games and meet-and-greet sessions with the Clash of Clans community.
