Why You Should be Excited for Manila Major
By Jaime Gonzalo
DOTA (Defence of the Ancients) is a strategy game developed by Valve. It’s an expansion of Warcraft that ended up getting more attention than Warcraft itself. The game involves two teams of 5 wherein the objective is to protect your base while you try to destroy the other team’s (or Ancient, in DOTA terms). The game requires hours and hours of hard work and dedication to actually be considered any good. This year, the Philippines hosts the first ever DOTA Major in South East Asia.
