The annually held Electronic Sports and Gaming Summit 2022 happened onsite again after two years due to the pandemic and lockdown. And it was timely that the campaign #ComebackIsReal was set. The event happened at the SMX Convention Center last October 28-31, 2022. As onsite activities resumed, ESGS 2022 came big by partnering with Globe, the major provider of telecommunications services in the Philippines, as its Main Presentor.
The Globe Gamer Grounds team came well-prepared for the comeback of this huge onsite event. Before the 3-day event, 3-day ESGS 2022 Passes and 10,000 Ember Points were given to twelve (12) lucky community members. Several activities in the booth were prepared for all Filipino gamers and esports fans, such as the Booth Selfie Event, where lucky participants won PHP 380 Gcash load + 10,000 Ember points each, and the Roulette Event, where all new community member signups got the chance of winning different merchandise from Globe Gamer Grounds tote bags, t-shirts, mouse mat, lanyard, Unipin codes, Ember points, Razer mouse, and Razer headsets. Major Raffles were held at every mid-day and end-of-the-day of the 3-day event, giving away 6 Razer products, from mice, headsets, and keyboards for each day.
Besides these booth activities, several onstage activities were held, like the King of the Hill and Play with the Stars. The King of the Hill was an activity that allowed Mobile Legends: Bang Bang competitive players to prove themselves that they could beat everyone in the queue on a 1v1 matchup. While influencers Chelsea Reyes, Cherizawa, Totoy, and Boss Maw, took part in the Play with the Stars event challenging queued-up Mobile Legends players in a 1v1 competition. The crowd especially had so much fun when Cherizawa started throwing away freebies to the huge crowd.
Gaming personalities Myrtle Sarrosa and Mobile Legends “GOAT” Ribo of ZOL Esports also dropped by at the booth making the Globe Gamer Grounds booth surprisingly even more exciting. Ambassadors Dexty MN and Kutingg also came into cosplay and hung out with the community at the booth on the 3-day event.
The excitement did not stop for the gamers at the booth as it was made extra fun because of the Budots Dance Challenge. Community members, esports, and gaming fans happily joined the dance challenge on stage to win awesome Globe Gamer Grounds merchandise.
All-in-all, the #ComebackIsReal for ESGS 2022 as Globe Gamer Grounds successfully welcomed 3,000 new community members to join the tournament platform!
