Our company feels that this regulation is a step towards the right direction to legitimize esports. We are currently working hard to promote a stronger and healthier gaming community.

In compliance with the Philippine government, the Galaxy Battles Management believes that following regulations will help shape the future of esports. We feel that regulations would lead towards the right direction to legitimise esports.
