Palarong Pambansa Mobile Legends and Dota 2
  • Recently news broke out that Deped has been considering adding Dota 2 and Mobile Legends in the Palarong Pambansa
  • so here we will discuss what they actually said before you believe fake fb posts
  • The discussion started when DepEd undersecretary Escobedo talked about the topic
  • initially they admitted that they haven't even talk about esports title like Mobile legends or Dota to be added
  • but in a recent interview with ABS CBN
  • According to him, they are considering titles included in the SEA games as a demo sport
  • however instead they prioritized “larong pinoy” this year which was requested by Secretary Briones
  • here is the statement
  • “The secretary wants to include larong Pinoy in the regular Palarong Pambansa sports. Maybe next year, we have larong Pinoy as demo sports with other sports. But not online games”
  • so confirmed onlines games are not part of the palarong pambansa at least for the upcoming one

  • here is the statement

PUBG Mobile to Game of Peace

  • If you remember Tencent launched PUBG mobile in China last february
  • but in a recent report PUBG Mobile has shutdown in China with replacement game called game of peace
  • So why did this happen?
  • Well apparently the game was not approved for monetization by the government
  • basically Tencent failed to secure a license to collect revenues
  • According to estimates PUBG Mobile in China have roughly 70 million domestic players
  • with revenues of more than 1 billion usd
  • wow grabe
  • So the solution of tencent right now is to migrate users to a new game called “Heping Jingying” which roughly translates to Elite Force of Piece o Game of Peace
  • and so far this game was approved by the government
  • So why was this approved instead of PUBG Mobile?
  • Well according to the reports the game is actually identical to pubg mobile
  • however it very patriotic which pays tribute in their Air Force
  • so there are anti terrorism themes instead
  • another difference is that the game is less violent, whatever that means
  • on the bright side there will be lesser hackers on PUBG Mobile
