Philippine Pro Gaming League 2019 Crowns Champions for Arena of Valor, League of Legends, and Tekken 7 Haoson April 14, 2019 Analog, Events After two days at Ayala Malls Feliz, the Philippine Pro Gaming League 2019 crowns it’s champions for Arena of Valor, League of Legends, and Tekken 7. Around 9,000 attendees witnessed firsthand as Liyab Esports claimed the back-to-back Arena of Valor and League of Legends championship titles, while Andreij “PBE|Doujin” Albar emerged on top of seven gritty players at the Tekken 7 finale. The PPGL AoV grand finals saw the meteoric rise of the newly-formed, yet veteran-filled, squad of Kidlat Esports. They were the first team to advance to the grand finals, where they were met by the tournament favorites, Liyab Esports. A total of five games were allotted for the grand showdown, but Liyab Esports proved that three is already enough for them to claim the PPGL AoV grand championship title and the 200,000 php grand prize. Arena Of Valor Prize Pool: Champion: Liyab Esports – 200,000 php 2nd Place: Kidlat Esports – 100,000 php 3rd-4th Place: Resurgence – 50,000 php 3rd-4th Place: Bren Esports – 50,000 php While the grand showdown of the PPGL AoV sported the potential of an up-and-coming esports team, the PPGL LoL grand finals, on the other hand, hosted a rematch between TNC Predator and the former Mineski-League of Legends squad of Liyab Esports. These two teams went at full five games last season with TNC Predator ending up as the champions. This time, however, Liyab Esports wasted no time in dethroning the reigning kings and swept them to claim the lion’s share of the 400,000 php prize pool, as well as the championship title.

PBE|Doujin’s commanding 3-0 sweep against his long-time rival allowed him to claim his second-straight PPGL Tekken 7 championship title and the 90,000 php grand prize.
