Sugar, spice, and everything nice! Introducing… Haliya, Globe’s newest all-female team!
Globe unveiled its newest esports stars, Team Haliya, an all-female team, in partnership with Mineski. They visioned Haliya based from Liyab Haliya. According to Bicolano folklore, she is a masked moon deity who battles monsters such as Bakunawa, a serpent-like dragon, which causes of eclipses, earthquakes, rains, and wind. The epitome of what GIRL POWER truly means, don’t you agree?
Team Haliya is surely a force to be reckoned with since the team includes several veterans. In addition, the skills of their rookies will aid to maximize their team’s potential. The moon deity team is composed of two teams. One for League of Legends (LoL) and one for Arena of Valor (AOV).
For those who don’t know, League of Legends (LoL) is a fast-paced multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA). It requires team coordination to destroy the enemies’ “nexus” located at their base. Arena of Valor or AOV is also a MOBA game, however, it’s played mainly on your mobile phones! The game’s ultimate goal is also to destroy the base of the opposing side.
So here is the roster for our respective teams! Reigning the Liyab Haliya League of Legends (LoL) squad are:
- Denese “Den” Santos (Team Captain)
- Jonerry “Jonze” Macapagal
- Aiko “Aiko” Onitsuka
- Giana “ Serment” Llanes
- Jeshua “Fofi” Ferrer
- Roxanne “Rox” Ty.
While Mirachel “Nukella” Yuki will be the team’s manager.
On the other side, Liyab Haliya Arena of Valor (AoV) is composed of:
- Em “Kaisaya” Dangla (Team Captain)
- Christine “Yunique” Pagador
- Jhoana “Miyeira” Osuyos
- Nicole “Kitty” Munsayac
- Marge “Marge” Norbe
Haliya LoL will make its first-ever debut at the Female Esports League (FSL) Elite League of Legends Tournament on September 5-8, 2019 at Suntec Convention Center in Singapore. Make sure to support them in their upcoming games!
And as for the Haliya AOV team, there are still no updates as to when they’ll make their first appearance but it’ll be surely soon enough so stay tuned!
