Love for Video Games
Chicoi Gonzales’ first video games were through a Family Computer that his parents bought in the mid-2000s. Games like Super Mario, Adventure Island, Battle City, and Contra are just some of the games he and his brothers loved playing in their childhood. Since then, he has played countless video games in his life until his cousin back in Basco Batanes introduced him to DOTA, which was the year 2006. Now his most-played game of all time is Dota 2 which was a continuation of his love for the earlier version of the game.
Love for Esports
His love for DOTA 2 has opened his mind to ideas and the potential of gaming. Back in the later parts of 2016 he created and managed a small group of amateur Dota 2 teams in Cavite. This was the first attempt to dive deeper into Esports and explore the world that’s still in its early stages of development.
