Globe, Liyab and Esports AcadArena partner to launch Academy BoostCamp

How do you feel about this story?


Hey fellow E-sports fans!

Esports AcadArena, in partnership with Globe Telecom and Liyab Esports, will launch the first-ever Academy BoostCamp for League of Legends on February 22 and 23 from 3 PM to 9 PM at the Esports Center in Eastwood City. 

The Esports AcadArena Academy Boostcamp (EAA ABC) is a two-day event consisting of lectures, workshops, and drills to further deepen the knowledge of attendees and participants, given by Liyab’s coaches Gerald “Tgee” Gelacio, Akarawat “Cabbage” Wangsawat, and Hey Gaming’s coach Van “Vansu” Alfonso.


Ariane Lim, Director of Student Programs of EAA said: “The Esports AcadArena Academy Boostcamp is an important step for our goal to launch a separate program specifically catered for education and not just a side event under our competitions. We want to illustrate, train and quantify the critical thinking, communication and team dynamics needed when playing a video game.”


Liyab Esports is one of the top esports teams in the Philippines for League of Legends representing the country in Riot’s Pacific Championship Series (PCS), and Hey Gaming is a veteran team that has been competing in the Philippine Pro-Gaming League since the beginning.


Here’s what you can expect to learn from during the event on both days:


  • 3:30 PM – Lecture with LYB Cabbage: Meta, Maps, Match-Ups
  • 4:30 PM – Workshop with LYB Cabbage and LYB Tgee: Coach Simulation
  • 4:30 PM – Exclusive workshops to screened campus teams by LYB Tgee and HG Vansu
  • 5:30 PM – Lecture with LYB Kaigu: Positional Coaching: Top


After the Drafting Workshop, 30 examinees will get the chance to test their skills and get graded on how well their drafting skills are against three (3) other participants. The top drafters will then receive Mystery Gifts and Shirts.


“I’ve worked directly with students and admin for the past 4 years. This first Esports AcadArena Academy BoostCamp is a product of feedback and discourse from within the campus community. It’s important that we have proof of concepts to see what works and what doesn’t and keep developing it.”, said Ariane Lim.
