St. Luke’s College of Medicine Batch 2020 was the champion of this year’s Sportsfest DotA 2 Competition, which took place in Mineski Infinity, E. Rodriguez Sr. Ave, on November 3-4, 2016. Three teams participated during the event: Batch 2019, 2020 and 2021.

The initial elimination round was of a round robin format, with Batch 2019 and 2020 having 1 win each, which secured them a slot for the grand finals. Batch 2021 was unable to win their games, and were eliminated.

The grand final was played in a best-of-three format. Batch 2020 dominated and swept through Game 1 within 30 minutes. In game 2, Batch 2020 slowly lost control of the game when Batch 2019 smothered them to submission and indecision, with the game lasting for more than 50 minutes.

The final game was then played with both teams being one win away from bagging the championship. Batch 2019 drafted an all-in pushing strategy, which was countered by Batch 2020’s farm strategy and plays with Smoke of Deceit.

The game finisher was when Batch 2020 Team Captain Jonas Ramel’s Lion was able to lure the whole enemy team in a congested spot in the map. Louen Visaya quickly followed up with a 4-man Slithereen Crush, and Junnel Advincula put the nail in the coffin by blinking and decimating the four–an Ultra Kill.

The team is set to prepare for the upcoming DotA Tournament in this school year’s Palarong Medisina in February. Team Roster: Oliver Perez III – Overall Captain and Team Coach; Junnel Advincula – Hard Carry; Theo Erl Avila – Mid; Louen Mark VIsaya – Offlane; David Goy – Farming Support; Jonas Ramel – Team Captain/ Hard Support.

 

AMAZING RACE

November 4, 2016; SLCM

The last day of the Sports Fest started off with the Amazing Race. This year’s Amazing race was full of new twists and challenges. Each team from 1st year to 3rd year was represented by five members. The first year representatives were Tricia Garcia, Carla Guico, Hazel Encarnado, Cryon Sarmiento and Vicky Salting. The second year team was composed of Jerwin Cayetano, Joshua Wong, Tin Licarte, Gerard Ona and Vengale Lim. For the juniors, the team members were Hanna La Rosa, R-jay Agbon, Coleen Vergara, Lordan Cadiente and Stephanie Kaye Cala.

Each team had to go through five stations that tested their stamina, wits and decision making skills. Each station had a specific activity based on a theme.  “Waterbender” was a quirky challenge that required the teams to fill a cup with their sweat. In “Pyramids”, each team built a pyramid using cards. “Learn to Count” tested the inner Lukan in each of them as they answered questions about the St. Luke’s building.  “A Beautiful Mind” station was full of riddles, math problems and puzzles. The last station had two options, “Magic Carpet” or “Hawaiian” which were both fun games that tested teamwork. The first team to finish all stations in the least amount of time wins.

It was a tight race but the juniors triumphed in the end with a total time of 2 hours and 20 minutes. In second place was the freshmen that finished in 2 hours and 23 minutes followed closely by the sophomores with a total time of 2 hours and 37 minutes. Congratulations to the representatives for a job well done!
