Myrtle Sarrosa competes in international online video game tournament
Actress Myrtle Sarrosa flew to Bangkok, Thailand, as part of the team representing the Philippines in the OMEN by HP Challenger Series amateur international tournament for the online video game “PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds” (PUBG).
Sarrosa, an avid gamer and cosplayer, said she previously tried qualifying to be part of the Philippine team in another tournament called “PUBG Mobile Star,” but failed, reports Push.
“First time ko mag-qualify para sa isang gaming tournament. Sumasali na ako kaso hindi talaga ako nakapasok. But this time I really qualified and I’m grateful for the opportunity na madala ko ang Pilipinas sa isang gaming tournament,” said the actress.
(It’s the first time I qualified for a gaming tournament. I used to join before, but I just couldn’t make the cut. But this time I really qualified and I’m grateful for the opportunity to represent the Philippines in a gaming tournament.)
The grand prize from the OMEN event totals $50,000 (about P2.7 million). Teams from 11 countries will compete in the tournament finals at the Queen Sirikit National Convention Center in Bangkok. The event began today, Nov. 2, and will run until Nov. 4.
Sarrosa also took the time to enjoy the sights a day before the tournament started. She updated her Instagram account on Nov. 1 with snapshots taken from the Wat Pho Temple of the Reclining Buddha. Alfred Bayle /ra
