New Panda Legends: Ultimate Battle winners named

foodpanda said in a statement that 128 teams registered on March 14 for this year's Mobile Legends online tournament for Ka-panda delivery partners.

The teams "showcased their gaming skills, only one team prevailed, taking home a prize pool of PHP 250,000," foodpanda said.

Aside from the cash prize, each winning team member also received PHP 2,000 worth of gas vouchers, which they can use for their delivery shifts, it added.

Prior to the final round on April 21, the teams also underwent a series of elimination games, with each round offering cash prizes to the participants.

foodpanda operations director Patricia Jacinto said Panda Legends aims to encourage delivery partners to establish friendly competition among the rider fleet.

This is the third time that foodpanda opened the competition to its delivery partners.

After our successful first run last 2021, we knew we needed another round of competition, and this year became the perfect time to do it again, Jacinto said.

With initiatives like this, we are encouraging community-building nationwide as we provide a space for our Ka-pandas to take a break from their usual daily routine and come together for playful engagement activities – whether you're a Ka-panda from Luzon, Visayas or Mindanao, she noted.

Nabuo yung grupo namin habang nag-aantay lang ng booking sa isang waiting shed. Di namin akalain na makaka-abot kami hanggang finals at mananalo pa, shared Ka panda Art Randy Maliwat from the winning team.

Meanwhile, Yran Basco, a Ka panda working student from Marikina, said he is elated to make it to the finals.

Pinag-igihan talaga namin yung practice para dito at nagbunga naman yung paghahanda namin dahil nakatungtong kami hanggang finals, he shares. Yung cash prize na natanggap namin, sobrang laking tulong para sa mga pansariling gastusin kaya malaki ang pasasalamat ko sa foodpanda dahil nabigyan kami ng pagkakataon na makasali dito.

The winning team and finalists also received prizes from the tournament's co-presenters and official partners such as Panther Gaming Gear, Unioil, GCash, and Motivo Tech.

To reward the hard work of the Ka-panda community, Jacinto said foodpanda still has something in store. She also assured them that the company will work on programs, services, and assistance that will add value to the riders’ livelihood.
