It was indeed a successful 2012 for Pinoys after taking home the gold from SGNDT2012, and this was all because of GMPGL. It is back once again and resumes on the 21st of January. Some of the top teams already forfeited their Class S slots and will be focusing on DotA 2 instead. With this, others aspiring teams now have a greater shot at stardom.
GMPGL CLASS B - Monday, January 21, 2013
GMPGL introduces the Class B division, and this will be an open-for-all tournament where any team who wishes to join are accepted. Class B participants will play at the Mineski cybercafe branches all over the country and the eventual champions of each branch will qualify to the Class A division.
GMPGL Class A - Saturday, January 26, 2013
While in the Class A division a total of 16 teams will be battling it out to get a spot at the Class S division, these 16 teams qualified as the top 2 finalists from the different branches. For the first leg of season 5, top 8 teams of this division will enter Class S while the rest will be relegated to Class B once again. All teams who enter Class A are already assured of P1000 prize.
GMPGL Class S - Sunday, January 27, 2013
Finally we have the Class S division where the best of the best battle it out for ultimate supremacy. All 8 teams will be split into 2 groups and the top 2 teams of each group will advance into the playoffs securing their spot for the Class S in the next leg.
And as a bonus and support, If ever a provincial team made it to the Class S, Mineski will be flying in a multimedia team to host coverage on games in that province. So that means, the champion of the GMPGL this season can really be called the Philippine champion!
