The Send-Off not only allowed the players to show the fans their abilities, but it also allowed the mall-goers to participate in SEA Games event-inspired activities. These were in the theme of Aquatics, Athletics, Volleyball, Boxing, and of course Esports. These activities had participants do various tasks as quick as possible. The Top 3 participants per day then had their podium moment and were called to receive their respective games.

Day 1 of the Sibol Send-Off weekend featured Arena of Valor and StarCraft II. The match between Bren Esports and Sibol – Arena of Valor went the full five games but in the end, Bren Esports took the victory. Sibol – StarCraft II’s Caviar Napoleon “EnDerr” Marquises-Acampado, on the other hand, bagged wins against eXoDash, Pol, and eXoXtinC.

Day 2 featured the athletes for Hearthstone and Tekken 7. Hearthstone opened the day with Dustin “WaningMoon” Mangulabnan and Jia “Jia” Dee playing a best-of-five Shielded Conquest game. The Shielded Conquest format is new to the Hearthstone scene and it lets players shield one of their decks while also banning away one from their opponent. WaningMoon took the victory from Jia in four games.

Tekken 7 closed out the weekend and the Send-Off for the Sibol athletes. Andreij “Doujin” Albar and Alexandre “AK” Laverez were joined by six of the best Tekken 7 players in the Philippines and played in a best-of-three double elimination mini-tournament. Early in the tournament, AK was sent to the Lower Bracket but he held on to face his rival and teammate Doujin in the Grand Finals. This time around, Doujin came out on top despite AK just on the cusp of forcing a reset in the bracket.

Sibol will be competing at the 30th SEA Games at the San Juan Arena in San Juan City from December 5-10. The 27 players of the roster will be competing in six disciplines including Dota 2, Arena of Valor, Mobile: Legends Bang Bang, Hearthstone, Tekken 7, and StarCraft II.
