Towers have fallen, and new heroes have risen as the SMM Philippines CyberSlam! 2014 Gaming Event comes to an epic end at the SM City North EDSA, last May 25th 2014.
“The Philippines is a rising tiger not only economically, but also on the side of eSports. Ultimately displaying its foothold as one of the future key players of the industry.” – Dr. Ricky Lim, President & CEO
The Two day Gaming Event kicked off via Dr. Ricky Lim’s opening statements, discussing the roots of SMM Philippines, its mission as a gaming centric company, together with the underlying role of the Philippines in the world of eSports in South East Asia. Games that saw action at the event are WC3: DoTA, DoTA2, StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm, HearthStone, and Assault Fire.

We would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to all the gamers who participated, and ultimately, to the gamers and teams who stood above the rest, proving that they have what it takes to become the very first, CyberSlam! 2014 Gaming Event Champions.
