The Filipino influence in Global CODM

The Call of Duty Mobile Masters Tournament for both North America and Europe came to a close just over a week ago, with Tribe Gaming and Nova Esports coming out on top for their respective regions

Another Filipino that took part in Master’s was Alliana “BeefMami” Liongson, who showcased her casting skills with great poise. She started shoutcasting in the Philippines’ CODM Championship as well as the Valkyrie Series (CODM Southeast Asian Championship for women) until by chance, she was discovered by Activision (CODM producers/developers) and was hired to shoutcast Masters after seeing what she could do in the country’s scene.

“They [Activision] thought I had the chops to shoutcast for Global CODM pro scene, so the experience was overwhelming because I had just started shoutcasting January 2021. I knew this was a really big opportunity to cast my first international tournament and be alongside big names in the esports broadcasting world,” she shared.

Her performance in Masters was seen and heard as one of the best shoutcasting deliveries in the CODM competitive scene to date, proving she can hang with the best of the best in the business and that Filipinos (and women) can be as good as they come in this industry and field as well.

“When I was casting Masters, it really humbled me. My fellow casters already had established careers either in shoutcasting or as a content creator. Seeing that, I learned at the end of the day, I still had a long way to go in terms of my skills in shoutcasting. Seeing the veterans really inspired me to be just as good as them.”

“Just keep on grinding. If you really love the game and if your path is clear going pro just do it. There will be some compromises though so if you are planning on taking the challenge of being in esports, know that you will have to give some things up for this career. In recent years gaming has been taken more and more seriously. The road is not going to be easy but the timing is so good for us Filipinos right now since all facets of esports is rapidly being established as a legitimate career.”
