Bren Esports (Bren) of the Philippines was crowned world champion of the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang, clinching a 4-3 win over the Burmese Ghouls of Myanmar at the Shangri-La Singapore late Sunday in a dramatic best-of-seven series that went down to the wire.
Bren player KarlTzy was named the grand finale’s Most Valuable Player.
Members of the team received their prizes from Melvin Yong, Member of Parliament and Patron of Singapore’s Cybersports and Online Gaming Association, and Keith Tan, Chief Executive of the Singapore Tourism Board. Bren will also be awarded with its very own M2-themed skin on a MLBB hero of the team’s choice.
With the victory, Bren avenged its 0-2 defeat at the hands of BG in the opening of their best-of-3 series’ M2 Playoffs, forcing the Philippine team down to the lower bracket and needing to take the longer route to the grand final.
Bren has also helped the Philippines reclaim the title as the strongest country in MLBB esports, ending Indonesia’s recent dominance by eliminating both Indonesian teams, Alter Ego Esports and RRQ Hoshi.
Breaking New Viewership Records
Achieving a staggering 3.08 million peak in global online viewership according to the Esports Charts analytics platform (one of many new MLBB esports viewership records), the grand final served as a fittingly epic finale for M2, the first global offline esports event to be held in Southeast Asia in 2021, organised by MOONTON in collaboration with SCOGA and supported by the STB and IMDA.
