About NBA 2K18 PH champ, runner-up to compete in Asian finals detail

Rosales who lost an early semi-finals match in the "twice to beat" bracket style tournament redeemed himself by powering through the loser’s bracket and qualifying for the finals.

Philippe Herrero IV a.k.a. PBE Philippe was the first to qualify for the Asian tournament going undefeated leading up to the finals.

The two met in the heated and nail-bitingly tight finals matchup. Only needing a single win after dominant winning streak that day PBE Philippe was inches away from an early championship in the back and forth first game. Not going down without a fight KE Rosales forced double overtime eventually taking the first game.

Despite fatigue setting in the second game was still tightly contested. KE Rosales soon one-upped PBE Philippe and took a sizeable lead in the second half winning the championship game.

MANILA Philippines - The official NBA 2K18 Philippine tournament crowned Karlo Rosales a.k.a. KE Rosales as the champion in the December 2 finals held in the Power Mac Center Spotlight in Circuit Makati.

Both KE Rosales and PBE Philippe will be representing the Philippines in the NBA 2K18 Asian Tournament to be held in the Taipei Game Show in Taipei Taiwan this January 2018.

On top of qualifying for the Asian tournament KE Rosales bagged $600 and a brand new NBA 2K18 PS4 Pro Bundle.

An 18-year-old Grade 11 student Rosales has been playing the NBA 2K series since 2K13 and is no stranger to competition having joined local tournaments in the past few years. This has greatly helped him prepare and know what to expect saying: “Nagpractice ako para paghandaan ‘to [tournament]. Worth it naman!”

When asked how he prepared he said: “Practice [laro] araw-araw.” (I played everyday.)

There they put their virtual ball skills to the test against the top 2 players from the following countries: Hong Kong China South Korea and Chinese Taipei. Competitors will be vying for a chance to win cash from the $10,000 prize pool.

The champion wins $6,000 while the first runner-up receives $2,500 the second runner-up receives $1,000 and the third runner-up receives $500.

After winning their qualifying matches both players were all smiles surrounded by friends and supporters. The first to qualify PBE Philippe admitted: “Hindi pa siya nag-sisink in sa akin pero matagal ko na siyang gusto since lumabas pa yung 2K18.”

KE Rosales on the other hand was excited to be able to represent the country and compete abroad.
