Teamwork and Camaraderie:  ECE Students Win DOTA 2 Tournament in the ECE Clash 2021: Battle of Gamers

Mapúa Malayan Colleges Mindanao BS Electronics Engineering students bagged the championship title for the DotA 2 Tournament with a score of 2-0 in the ECE Clash 2021: Battle of Gamers held last January 9 to 17, 2021. Team Avarus Gaming is composed of 2nd Year BS Electronics Engineering students namely Mark Anthony Park, Marc Angelo Carbo, Daniel James Milana, Brett Derek Aldeguer, and Morris Tambilawan. 

ECE Clash 2021: Battle of Gamers was an eSports competition with tournaments for Valorant, DotA 2, and Mobile Legends. The event was hosted by SELECOMES, the academic organization for Electronics Engineering students from the Ateneo de Davao University, to which they have opened the competition to all Electronics Engineering students from different colleges and universities.

Mapúa Malayan Colleges Mindanao supports its students not only in academic events but in extracurricular activities as well. ESports in the Malayan community is well received and even encouraged by colleges and organizations.

“I think as a student in this institution, MapúaMCM provided us with not only the quality education we need but also the fun and excitement of eSport games. Without MapúaMCM’s support, these events which we enjoy would not be possible. On behalf of our team and the other teams as well, thank you MapúaMCM for making all of these possible!” Mark Anthony Park, the team captain of Avarus Gaming, shared his gratitude.

The team shared that they were invited to the event by Kurt Dave Barcelo, the president of the Malayan Institute of Electronics Engineering Students (MIECES). They were looking for participants, so the team grabbed the opportunity to play. More than the skills and knowledge that the students gain from their academics, different fields of interest such as eSports also open the door to greater opportunities of learning critical thinking, camaraderie, and strategic team planning.

“For us, preparation was basically just playing scrims to enhance our chemistry, teamwork, and communication. Aside from that, we also have our individual preparation like playing ranked games to enhance our individual skills. It was not hard for us to be on the same page during the tournament, because even before this tournament, we were already playing scrims and ranked matches together.” Mark Anthony Park said.
