Mineski VxV, organized by PPGL and Mineski, returns for its invitational edition after being hosted as a regional First Strike competition for the Philippines last year. The Mineski VxV Invitational Playoffs will feature a single-elimination best-of-three (BO3) playoff bracket, with PH₱250,000 on the line. The tournament boasts eight of the country’s finest representatives at VCT PH Stage 3 to assess their strength as the 2021 VCT has concluded.
Among the participants is Team Secret, as well as Nigma Galaxy (formerly Galaxy Racer) and Oasis Gaming, who represented the Philippines in the VCT Stage 3 – SEA Challengers Playoffs, where the former team won the whole event.
Bren Esports have also reappeared with a completely new lineup after their mutual departure from the current Team Secret squad in September. Alpha Esports Pro, SV Empire, and South Built Esports round out the roster of teams seeking to cause upsets in the table.
