Kalaro esports platform aims to unite Filipino gamers

With the launch of its Kalaro esports platform, The-AsiaGroup.com Inc. aims to unite Filipino gamers and bring esports to the grassroots.

With the recent launch of its Filipino-made Kalaro esports platform, The-AsiaGroup.com Inc. is bullish that the company will unite Filipino gamers and bring esports to the grassroots.

“The bigger advocacy for us is to use Kalaro as the central hub for them to be able to participate, showcase themselves, showcase their talents. The competition is not here in the Philippines. Where we want to compete is in the international arena. We hone our skills inside Kalaro, as a team, as a league. Then you go out, you compete in Europe, in the US, maybe in Japan and China. You come back again and hone your skills again. In fact, I imagine Kalaro to be like a virtual city. A virtual place, like a bootcamp or training camp for players,” said Kalaro Software Architect Jun D. Lasco at the press briefing in response to a question from Digital Life Asia.
