A netizen named Drexel Cruz posted photos on the Facebook page MOBILE LEGENDS PHILIPPINES which was later reposted by another Facebook page dedicated to cats called Muningning.
The photos show a dead cat hanging from the gate of a house with a thin cord tied around its neck.
“Hayop kang pusa ka dahil sa ‘yo natalo ako sa mobile legends knina. Grrrr hindi mo na ako maiistorbo,” Drexel wrote.
He said that the cat was really annoying and he tried to put up with it, but the cat got in the way of his Mobile Legends game.
“Ilagay nyo po sa posisyon ko ang mga sarili nyo. Kung may pinaghihirapan po kayo at sisirain lang ng iba, mas magandang burahin nyo yung naninira.”
People who play the Mobile Legends game know that ranking up is not easy as it requires a crazy amount of effort. This is exactly what Drexel was thinking when he killed his cat.
“Sa mga na trigger sa post ko ipagpaumanhin nyo po ang ginawa ko, mas importantante po ang rank kesa sa buhay ng pusa. madali lang naman sila mag parami, pero ang rank mahirap ipunin.”
Netizens showed their disgust towards what Drexel’s inhumane deed.
“WAG MO SISIHIN YUNG PUSA! SADYANG BOBO KA LANG MAGLARO NG ML KAYA KA NATATALO GUNGGONG!”
“Bobo mo!!!naglalambing lang sayo ung pusa binigti mo na,kailangan mo na magpatingin sa doktor pero dapat makulong ka muna👎”
“P*TANG *NA Mo patayin ko parents Mo madali lang nmn din magparami ng Tao animal kA”
“Nang dahil lang sa mobile legend pinatay mo yung pusa gawa rin yan ng DIYOS kuya kaya wala kang karapatan na pumatay rin ng hayop GAGO ToH tang ina KA”
“Nang dahil lang sa mobile legend pinatay mo yung pusa gawa rin yan ng DIYOS kuya kaya wala kang karapatan na pumatay rin ng hayop GAGO ToH tang ina KA”
However, some netizens claimed that the picture is old and is really from a news report about a case of animal cruelty. Either way, Drexel’s goal seems to be to get people upset and triggered which his post has certainly accomplished.

Online gaming or streaming is popular nowadays, especially with games like Dota and Mobile Legends. And in order to drive more people to their streams, some gamers have resorted to “sando gaming.”
A sando is a sleeveless undershirt that is very popular in Southeast Asian countries. Some female gamers have resorted to sando gaming to grow their fanbases, offering an ample view of their bosoms as a come on.
Before playing the actual game, these streamers provide “fan service” by jiggling their “assets” in front of the camera. These gamers also encourage their viewers to share their stream with different communities and Facebook groups for a reward.
Sando gamers usually play “Freemium” games or free Mobile and PC Games like Rules of Survival, Mobile Legenda, Dota 2, League of Legends. These are the most popular game titles in the Philippines.

Some of these female streamers are actually skilled enough to play the game, but their skills are truthfully not the main attraction of the stream.
Several groups, however, condemned the practice for contributing to sexism in video gaming.
Remember that little boy who got his Mobile Legends account banned for over 10,000 days? Well, here is the truth to what happened.
His name is Tenten, the youngest of the brothers, and the one who recorded the whole incident was his big brother, Mak Samonte.
In our exclusive interview with Mak Samonte, he said Tenten started playing the ever so famous Mobile Legends back in December of last year, and that he is really fond of mobile games. “Nag start sya last year sir. December 2018 nag lalaro na sya ee. Wala lang nag laro lang sya. Mahilig kase sa games to ee.”
At the time of his account getting banned, Tenten was using the hero Argus and his rank was Grandmaster, which indicated that he put in a lot of time and effort to that game. “Grandmaster 4. Argus huling ginamit nya ee. Basta yung argus huling nagamit nya. Di ko kase kabisado yung account nya. Bigla nlng syang naban tapos mag cheat.”
Then Tenten and one of his brothers started getting on YouTube to learn how to cheat the game.
The other brother was actually the one who caused Tenten’s account to be banned. He was using their shared account on another phone. The cheat he used was the map hack, which is downloadable.
“‘Yung kapatid kong pangatlo ang nag cheat sa account nya. Kaya maririnig mo sa video na “CHINEATAN AKO NI KUYA” natutunan sa youtube. Nanunuod sila tpos ginagaya. Kaya yung account ng bunso kong kapatid yung napahamak. Kaya mapapansin mo mag kaiba yung phone sa pic at vid kase dun ni log-in yung account.”
It basically enables the player to see the location of opposing players in the game, which makes it difficult for opponents to win.
When Tenten found out that the account got banned, he immediately said, “Chineatan ako ni kuya!”, as tears were flowing.
So they just decided to create another account because waiting for 10,000 days would take forever. “Gumawa nalang ng bagong account. Masyadong matagal yung 10k days. Hehe.”
The little boys now know the consequences of cheating, and learned that if they ever decide to do it again, all their hard work will just go down the drain.
“Naging lesson nman na wag na sila gumamit ng cheat kase yung mga pinag hihirapan nila sa ML na mga hero mawawala at babalik sa umpisa. Mahirap mag parank kase.”
Mak urges players to not cheat because it is not worth it. All the money, time, late nights would mean nothing if their accounts get banned.
“Na wag na nilang tangkain. Kase totoong mababan yung account nila at masasayang yung mga pinag hirapan nila.😊”
Mobile Legends is easily the most popular mobile game in Southeast Asia today.
You can see people playing it regardless of where they are. Some schools are even planning on prohibiting students from playing it inside the campus.
Netizen Mak Samonte posted a video of his son on Facebook. His son was crying while looking at his phone while daddy was clearly enjoying it. He zoomed in on the phone and took a photo.
The phone was running the mobile legends app and there was a system notice that said: “The account is banned. Rest time of ban: 10949 day(s) 1 hour(s) 23 minutes.”
Netizens found it to be really funny.
Their theory was that the little boy was using cheat codes in the game, got caught, and was banned. Some were even commenting that Samonte used a fake phone to get attention but proved them wrong. The post has nearly 5000 likes and over 16,000 shares.
One must be living under a rock not to know what Mobile Legends and DOTA are. Filipinos, especially the youth, have always been heavily associated with online games.
Mobile Legends and DOTA are two of the most popular online games in Southeast Asia today.
Mobile Legends, back in 2018, was included in the Asian Games but only as a demonstration event. But will the first mobile game be included in the upcoming 2019 SEA Games, which will be held in the country from November 30 to December 10 in New Clark City or in Metro Manila?
The reason for the game’s popularity is because it is a free-to-play game that makes it easy for anyone with a smartphone to access it. The game also follows a multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA), that is how games such as Dota 2 or League of Legends are played, which is also one of the main reasons for its popularity.
The question now is whether the Department of Education is ready or willing to include online games such as DOTA and Mobile Legends in the “Palarong Pambansa.” Gamers would argue that it should happen since no one can really deny the impact and popularity of the said online games.
Palarong Pambansa 2019 secretary-general and DepEd undersecretary Revsee Escobedo admitted that there has not been any discussions about adding online games to the annual event but said that it is the Palaro Board’s job to include games that promote physical and motor skills of young people.
Escobedo said “The secretary (Leonor Briones) wants to include larong Pinoy in the regular Palarong Pambansa sports. Maybe next year, we will have larong Pinoy as demo sports with other sports. But not online games. Larong Pinoy is no longer part of the regular sports. But these larong Pinoy are cultural heritage games that we cherish. This is indeed a cultural treasure to Filipinos.”
She made it clear that they are not ruling out the possibility of online games being included in the future, which has given hope to online gamers.
The undersecretary also acknowledged the pros and cons of online gaming but there is nothing wrong if gamers can create a balance between the two factors. They are still observing how gamer students can benefit from online gaming.
“There are positive and negative observations with regards to online games. What is important is we have to balance them. What is important to us, the officials of DepEd, is the holistic development of our lifelong learners,” she added.
The post garnered mixed reactions from Twitter users.
Srsly?! Eh nakakalimutan na nga yong mga traditional games tapos isasama to? Bat kaya hindi ippromote yong mga tradisyunal na laro ano po? Kung anu-ano naiisip. Talaga naman https://t.co/sQigVQmcIT

Games are not necessarily "sport".
Sport requires regular and organized competition.
Hindi regular and organized competition ang mga larong Pinoy.
Ang dapat gawin dito ay… https://t.co/3yhhg7GvA9

Interesado ako sa naisip ng DepEd na isama ang Dota, LoL, at Mobile Legends sa Palarong pambansa. Makakakita sila dito ng mga aspiring Esport player na under rated sa mga lugar nila. Kung mangyari man yun madami na tayong pwedeng isali sa different tournament outside the country.

Mas okay pa po DOTA ang isama. DOTA is for teamwork skills and techniques. With angle calculations and time rythm with base algorithms and effective manipulations of items that vary between item and heroes. https://t.co/3ylguaH1Sw

She also acknowledged the fact that technology is playing a big role when it comes to games and said that they are getting support from the Philippine Sports Commission.
The Pambansang Palaro is being held at Davao City. It started back on April 27 and will conclude on the 4th of May.
Mobile Legend is Life!
Mobile Legends and Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) are the most trending mobile games today. It is played by young students and even professionals. Since it is very addictive, sometimes players tend to forget to do their duties and responsibilities in their respective homes and/or work stations.
That is why a mayor in Biliran made a memo order to fire employees who would be caught playing mobile games.
The memo was posted in the Facebook account of Mayor Gerard Espina in Biliran, stating to fire his employees who would be caught playing mobile games during their shift. The issue also came from other employees who complained about that matter.
According to Espina, as a government employee, it is not their responsibility as employees to play mobile games during their shift, as a reminder to every one of their duties and responsibilities.
“Let it be known to all municipal employees that this act is not included in your responsibility, obligation, and duty as public servants,” Espina wrote on his memo.
And he is hoping that this will be a wake-up call for all employee to level up their maturity and be more serious in their jobs as public servants.
“I hope that with this memo, suspected employees will ‘level up’ their maturity in the seriousness of public service or ‘squad up’ to find a new place of employment,” he said.
Playing mobile games somehow helps people entertain and relax themselves from all the stress that they are having from everyday life. But then we should know our limitations on when to play mobile games. As we are paid by the government to work, we should also do our responsibilities and obligations well.
In this age of modern technology, everyone seems to be too pre-occupied in their mobile devices. Especially now that a lot of mobile games are very famous and addicting. However, playing games, especially for kids, should have a limitation too. To everyone who’s been addicted to mobile games, you might want to see this first before you play another game…
READ: Facebook netizen, Mhary Mundoc Idanan, shared on a Facebook post what happened to her after playing a famous mobile game named Mobile Legends.
Mobile Legends: Bang Bang is just amongst the popular mobile games in the Philippines that gets a lot of kids and young adults hooked. It is a multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) designed for mobile phones that have been downloaded for more than a million.
According to Mhary, she has been diagnosed with stroke due to her addiction to the mobile game. In her post, she shared that she was rushed to Quezon City General Hospital and is now bedridden. At 23 years old, everyone is shocked to know that she suffered a stroke at such a young age.
“When ML (Mobile Legends) is life na nauwi sa pagkastroke ko,” she said in her post. She shared pictures of her as proof that she has lost all of her strength because of this.
Mhary attributed her getting a stroke to playing with Mobile Legends. According to her, she plays every time, even getting to the point of playing from 10 o’clock in the evening and would finish at 6 o’clock in the morning. She will not stop until her character gets ranked in the game.
“Kahit naluluha- luha na mata ko, ‘di pa rin po ako titigil hanggat ‘di ko po napaparank yung ml ko,” she shared in her post.
Although there is no direct link to playing video games to getting a stroke, ultimately, she warned everyone to be extra careful in playing video games or mobile applications, or else, one may just end up like her.
For everyone’s information: Stroke is a medical condition that is a result of cell death due to poor blood flow in the brain. A stroke may be caused either by the lack of blood flow, which is called Ischemic stroke, or due to bleeding or bursting of blood vessel, called Hemorrhagic stroke. People at risk includes those with high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol, and those who smoke. A stroke is a medical emergency that needs immediate action and treatment in order to minimize further complications in the brain.
