Overwatch and ROS: The Action-Packed Side Shows
In Overwatch, Philippine side MMK wins against Thai squad Illuminate.WISE, 7-6, in order to get the inaugural Plus Attack Overwatch title for the country. Thus, they win the lion’s share of the slated P150,000 prize pool for Blizzard’s FPS title.

Plus Attack featured three main titles, as well as a side title in the form of Project Xandata. A PUBG showmatch was supposed to be played, but was cancelled due to unforeseen technical issues. In addition, a quick 1v1 tournament was also held, where players showed their CS:GO aiming skills.
Project Xandata attracted everyone’s attention during the tournament with their exhibition and community showmatches on stage as well as their raffles and free play sessions at the off-stage playing site.
Plus Attack is WASD Philippines’ biggest attempt to create a FPS event so far, after holding two editions of the Tarlac Esports League (TESL) back in April 2017 and 2018.
