PBA Players at YGG W3GS
Dillinger will be bringing his former Gilas Pilipinas teammate and reigning PBA Governor’s Cup Best Player of the Conference Standhardinger and recent Gin Kings import Bishop, Jr. to go head to head with professional eSports athlete Disi, YGG Esports Elite Captain for the demo of Riftstorm by Mythic Protocol.
Riftstorm is an upcoming multiplayer cooperative top-down action shooter game that allows players to assume the role of elite secret operatives and battle supernatural entities while exploring strange new worlds beyond our own. The game is slated to be released on Steam and will feature cross-play between mobile, console, and PC platforms. Riftstorm is currently in Early Access and is expected to remain in this state for at least one year.
In a media release, Mench Dizon, Country Head of YGG Pilipinas, said the YGG Web3 Games Summit aims to reimagine the way that elite gamers, athletes, artists, and content creators engage with their fans while uncovering new revenue streams.
“For example, digital collectibles and memorabilia can be created as verifiably rare and exclusive NFTs. It’s even possible to tokenize a sports team, an athlete, or an artist, so that fans can own a direct stake, granting them voting rights, access to special events, and other unique experiences,” Dizon explained.
In this regard, she highlighted that web3 is furthering the competitive gaming and esports industries by using blockchain technology to guarantee instant, transparent, and fair compensation for tournament winners in the form of cash prizes.
“Increasingly, even the trophies and awards are being issued to esports athletes as non-transferable NFTs, known as Soulbound Tokens, or SBTs, as proof of the competitor’s accomplishments,” Dizon added, noting that YGG also issues SBTs in recognition of the achievements of its own guild members.
W3GS Cosplay Competition and Games
According to the media release, acclaimed cosplayers Gelo Grayson, Kang Dupet, and Leny Ming will also be participating in the event as judges of the summit’s Cosplay Competition.
The competition will feature thirty Filipino cosplayers presenting their best costumes in an attempt to win a share of the P60,000 prize pool, along with other exciting prizes such as exclusive merchandise and sponsored freebies.
In addition to the aforementioned activities, the YGG W3GS will also feature more than 40 Web3 games and projects that will be showcased during the three-day expo.
- Ragnarok Landverse
- PROJECT XENO
- Mighty Action Heroes
- Anito Legends
- Star Atlas
- Axie Infinity: Origins

Accordingly, content creators and esports athletes will provide attendees with a sneak peek into these games’ gameplay and compete in a three-day tournament for a chance to win cash prizes.
