Polaris Esports, Genius Esports emerge as Asia Pacific Predator League 2022 champions

Championship Sunday was in full swing at the Asia Pacific Predator League 2022 Grand Finals at Link Forest in Tokyo, Japan. With a Filipino team already assured of the win in Dota 2, ArkAngel Predator had to play above expectations to make waves in the PUBG side after a middle-of-the-pack showing in the first two days. In the All-Filipino finals of Dota 2, it was a brawl between Polaris Esports and Execration. A risky Position 4 Leshrac by Marvin “Xavius” Rushton didn’t pay off too much in the early game despite picking up an early Aghanim’s Shard. Jinn “Palos” Lamatao’s Pudge was hitting all the strides in Game 1 in a masterclass performance. In game 2, the Pudge was again the hero, this time in the hands of John “Natsumi” Vargas.

Samsung introduces new Galaxy A Series smartphones in PH

Being “awesome” has different meanings to different people and can be interpreted in many ways. For some, this could mean being able to seize opportunities, maximize one’s time and balance multiple responsibilities. Being awesome may also mean engaging in one’s passions, from baking to playing mobile games, or even making art. For others, being awesome can be about the seemingly small wins that matter, like ticking off all the items on one’s to-do list, or staying within budget. There truly is no singular definition of being awesome; it’s how one chooses to live their life the best way one can. And this is why Samsung recently unveiled their latest Galaxy A Series smartphones: Galaxy A13 5G, Galaxy A23 5G, and Galaxy A04s, to enable today’s youth to achieve their awesome, whatever that may be.
