More exciting tournaments, offline activities and bigger prizes for its gamers, Level Up! Inc., to join event!

Level Up! Founder Ben Colayco and IP E-Game Ventures Inc. CEO Enrique Gonzalez graced the event as they publicly announced the local online game publishing giants' merge

IP e-Game Ventures Inc., (PSE: EG) will celebrate today  its sixth year anniversary with Domination 6, the biggest single-day gaming event of  2012.

Now on its sixth year, Domination is the biggest single-day local gaming event wherein gamers and enthusiasts come together to celebrate the joy of gaming life through a day full of gaming tournaments, fun offline activities, and exhilarating stage performances from cosplayers and a number of the country’s best bands.

According to IP e-Games chief operating officer Heidi Mendita-Garayblas, Domination serves as a venue for IP e-Games to thank its loyal gamers for their continued support and enthusiasm for its top gaming massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) titles RAN Online and  CABAL Online, online first person shooter Point Blank and online casual games Audition Dance Battle, and Bandmaster.

Big tournament finals are bound to happen in Domination 6. Set to conclude are the yearlong RAN Online Matira Matibay Tournament, CABAL 3v3 Carnage National Tournament, Point Blank Mega Bakbakan, Audition Dance Battle Master of Eight Keys, and Bandmaster SOS Bagsakan.

The winners of the Point Blank Mega Bakbakan tournament will not only get the top prize, but will also earn the enviable task of representing the country in the Point Blank International Competition, one of the most prestigious gaming tournaments, this May 2012.

Domination 6 will also be the landmark gaming celebration to attend as Level Up! Inc., will be joining in the festivities. With the completion of the merger of IP e-Games and Level Up! Inc., last March 30, this gaming event will be a launch pad for the combined gaming activities of both online publishers.

Level Up!  Inc., founder Ben Colayco together with Enrique Gonzalez, IP e-Games CEO and President, will be onstage to welcome gamers and provide updates on the merger.   Level Up! will also have a game booth for Bounty Houndz Online, its newest online sci-fi MMORPG.

Both companies have been actively promoting the event for the past months and gamer response has been overwhelmingly positive. Gamers can expect more intense tournament finals,  tons of freebies and awesome contest prizes. There will be more than 200 top-of-the-line PCs for free-play,  other online activities, and band performances from  Up Dharma Down (Oo, Baliw Sa ‘Yo), Join the Club (Nobela, Handog) and Tanya Markova (Picture Picture, Linda Blair). Model and radio disc jockey Karen Bordador and actor JC Cuadrado are this year’s event hosts.

“Expect Domination 6 and future Level Up! events to be grander, providing an even  richer gaming experience,” Garayblas said.

Aside from the tournaments, Domination 6 will offer gamers the chance to land their dream jobs. IP e-Games vice-president for marketing Miguel Bauza revealed that this year’s event will host a job fair. Gamers can submit their résumés and have a chance to land a job. He added that IP e-Games, in its own way, is always finding ways to look after our gamers. “This Job fair will hopefully provide them with opportunities to grow professionally as well.  This is how much IP e-Games values its loyal gaming community.”

Domination 6 is co-presented by Axe Anarchy and Smart Communcations with major sponsors Cobra Smart, PLDT, Redfox, and Razer and minor sponsors Hewlett-Packard, Samsung, SteelSeries, Bitdefender, Fatboy’s, Uno Pizzeria, and Binalot.
