“We realize and respect PeSO (Philippine Esports Organization) as one of the Philippines’ major esports organizations. What I can say is that we are open to cooperating with them on ‘The Nationals’ or any other events that we can because I believe that as a publisher, we must be open to working with organizations like PeSO and maybe other organizations “He said.
