Smart to hold country’s biggest Clash of Clans tourney

Smart Communications, Inc. will be holding the country’s largest Clash of Clans (COC) tournament, the Philippine Clash 2015, with over PHP 2-million worth of prizes—currently the largest prize pool in a local mobile gaming competition.

Smart will be partnering with the country’s biggest names in gaming, including the Philippine eSports Organization, Inquirer eSports, SM Cyberzone, and the Philippine Clash of Clans Battleground—the biggest online community of COC players in the country—in holding the event.

“The COC phenomenon has hit the Philippines big time, with Filipinos from all walks of life bonding together to form clans and compete every chance they get, on the train, while stuck in traffic, or when they are just relaxing at home. It is just about time we put together the country’s biggest COC tournament and provide a venue for players and fans alike to showcase their skills in the spirit of friendly competition,” said Mellissa Limcaoco, head of Smart’s innovation and product development group.

“This is very much a part of our push to elevate gaming into a form of competitive sports, extolling good values like discipline and teamwork in a fun-filled arena,” she added.

Smart prepaid subscribers are able to access COC using the Entertainment Bundle which gives them 300MB worth of data for mobile games, Youtube, and other online activities, 30 minutes of Calls to Smart and Talk ‘N Text, and 150 texts to all networks valid for three days, all for only PHP 50.

Open to all Smart Prepaid, Postpaid and Smart Bro subscribers, the competition will feature several elimination legs in major cities throughout the archipelago, including Baguio, Batangas, Cebu, Davao, and Metro Manila before culminating in one big final clash in October.
