Leading eSports company looks to lift Philippine gaming to the next level

Eric Redulfin started his cyber cafe business with just four units. Now, his TNC Cyber Cafe has blossomed into a firm that has over 100 branches with a total of 12,000 computers. Aside from his success, Redulfin and his company has also been an integral part of the booming eSports scene in the Philippines, with an array of pro eSports teams that have found success in their respective games. 'From having only a Dota 2 team, now we have League of Legends, CSGO, Crossfire, Hearthstone and Dota 2 girls’ team – the TNC Amazons,' Redulfin said. With the teams taking pride in their victories, Redulfin has bared a plan to help the gaming squads, and Philippine eSports itself flourish even more. TNC Philippine Holdings Inc. has announced its grand opening to help safeguard the growth and presence of eSports in the country.  The grand opening was graced by titans in the gaming industry, Nvidia, Predator, among others, and representatives from the Game Amusement Board. New teams from TNC E-Sports were also introduced. Aside from the TNC Pro Team, now they have League of Legends, CS:GO, CRossfire, Hearthstone and a Dota 2 female team – the TNC Amazons. TNC is set to focus heavily on developing eSports by targeting multiple gaming platforms, hopefully strengthening the hold of TNC towards gaming in the local and global scene. “Ensuring the growth of eSports, it doesn’t stop there. TNC Philippine Holdings Inc. will dive into innovations, research and development, high level marketing to further the quality of growth of eSports in the Philippines. And most importantly, to build a strong relationship and trust with all the company all around the Philippines and show them that eSports is the future.” says Lester Ryan Wong, the CEO of TNC Philippine Holdings Incc. Redulfin said that the founding of this company will give opportunities to aspiring players which was his original plan when they first established TNC Pro Team.  Now, more than giving opportunities to these aspiring gamers, the company will secure more breaks for new players with the goal of proving that there can be a professional future in eSports.  With the help and support of the Games and Amusements Board's accreditation eSports will be the next big thing. Aside from this, we also want to strengthen our main business, our cyber cafes. This is only the start for a stronger Philippine eSports industry,” Redulfin added. In the near future, TNC Philippine Holdings Inc. plans to establish more professional teams, hold bigger eSports events and expansion of TNC. The company also plans to go full power with their merchandises and gears which will soon be able to the public.
