Galaxy Battles II: Emerging Worlds is the second annual DoTA 2 tournament from Fallout Gaming and Purpose Win Entertainment Limited (PWEL).

Together, both companies launched the first ever Galaxy Battles in Shenzhen, China, last June 2017. This year’s three-day tournament was held at the Philippine Arena in the province of Bulacan, Philippines, on January 19 to 21, 2018.

This year’s Galaxy Battles tournament featured  broadcast talents such as host Eri Neeman, panel host Danelie Purdue, and commentators David “GoDZ” Parker, David “Luminous” Zhang, Gabriel “Lyrical” Cruz, Dominik “Lacoste” Stipic, Benjamin “Bkop” Kopilow, Neal “tsunami” Khandheria, and Cameron “Basskip” Scott; all of whom have respectively gained their expertise in analyzing gameplays in major DoTA tournaments.

The first day of Galaxy Battles II saw wins from Team Spirit, VGJ.Thunder, Evil Geniuses, and Red Bull OG in the Upper Bracket. TNC Pro Team and paiN Gaming, meanwhile, won against the South American Team Infamous and wild-card winner PG. Barracx, eliminating the two teams from the rest of the tournament.

On day two of the event, VGJ.Thunder and Evil Geniuses defeated Team Spirit and Red Bull OG in a best of three battle in the Upper Semi-Finals. The second day of Galaxy Battles ended with a victory from the Evil Geniuses against VGJ.Thunder, which earned them the first slot in the best of five Grand Finals.

The last day of Galaxy Battles II highlighted the Lower Bracket teams who squared off against each other in four best of one matches. Red Bull OG and Team Spirit gained their respective victories against TNC Pro Team and paiN Gaming in the Semi-Finals. But it was Team Spirit who got the chance to advance to the Lower Finals and faced VGJ.Thunder, with the latter winning in the Grand Finals.

Galaxy Battles II ended with VGJ.Thunder emerging victorious. China’s VGJ.Thunder, with members Sylar (Jia Jun Liu), Ayo (Tianyou Fan), Fade (Pan Yi), Yang.Cn (Zhou Haiyang), and Kamma (Liu Chang), ranked 16th in the world ranking and 6th in their China ranking. They have been competing in DoTA tournaments since their establishment in 2016 and had won various tournaments, including H-Cup Seasons 8 and 9 as well as the 2017 China Top DoTA 2.

“This is the best moment of my entire gaming career,” says VGJ Thunder’s Liu Chang (Freeze). “If there’s one word to describe the whole team’s feeling about winning first place: it’s HAPPY.”

For Adrian Gaffor, Fallout Gaming’s Managing Director, the tournament was a success. “In the past decades, esports has seen development and growth in Southeast Asia alone. As more companies start to come together and work for its expansion and recognition as a legitimate sport, we are seeing an industry that will flourish and become dominant in the future.”
