SINGAPORE–hackenslash reporter Alex Villafania provided the Philippine team its best finish in the 2006 World Cyber Games Asian Championship, placing fourth in the regional competition’s Dead or Alive 4 category for the Xbox 360 after losing to Thailand’s Pramote Auyahan.

Taking his hat off as journalist, Alex Villafania now remains the only Filipino to have entered the semi-finals in the special Asian Games of the World Cybergames 2006 in Singapore, Hackenslash editor Joey Alarilla writes in the website’s blog and in INQ7.net’s breaking news.

Villafania who currently writes for Hackenslash and INQ7.net beat his foreign opponents. He now faces Singaporean bet Wilson Chia.

Alex is playing the Dead or Alive 4 Xbox 360 tournament.

Joey says that Alex is apparently “the last remaining hope for the Philippines, as the Filipino bets in Counter-Strike 1.6, FIFA 2006, Warcraft III and the Defense of the Ancients (DOTA) All Stars Open tournament unfortunately did not make it past the first day of competition.”

“The second best finish next to Villafania came from DOTA Philippine Team 129, which made it to the Round of 16. Team 129 was the runner up in the 2006 WCG Asian Championship Philippine preliminaries. The Philippine DOTA champion Team Flow was eliminated during the group stage matches earlier today,.” he adds.

Good luck Alex! and I hope you bring the cash and the 360 home! Wohoo!
