A Glimpse of Manila Masters Cosplay


It’s been months since the Manila Masters, the first Dota2 event held in the Philippines for 2017, almost a year after the Manila Majors where a lot of pro gamers were invited from around the world.  Again our very own Filipino cosplayers showed their talents once again to the world what they can do for the Manila Masters Cosplay Competition.

The Cosplay Competition was held on the third day of the event after the Semi-Finals of the Dota2 Game between Evil Geniuses vs Team NP, where EG battled it out for the Finals.  The competition was judged by Dota2 shoutcasters Toby “TOBIWAN” Dawson and SirActionSlacks, along with our very own cosplayers, Fred Vinas and Kang Dupet.
