Bren Esports of PH is new king of Mobile Legends: Bang Bang

World Champion of Mobile Legends

MOONTON Technology Co. Ltd. (MOONTON) is pleased to present the new World Champion of Mobile Legends: Bang Bang (MLBB) – Bren Esports (Bren) of the Philippines.

Bren’s Claims MLBB Esports Glory for PH

Bren emerged victorious in the Grand Finals of the M2 World Championship (M2) held in the Shangri-La Singapore, clinching a 4-3 win over Burmese Ghouls (BG) of Myanmar in a dramatic Best of Seven series that went down to the wire. Bren player KarlTzy was also named the Grand Final’s Most Valuable Player.

Having received their prizes from Melvin Yong, Member of Parliament and Patron of Singapore’s Cybersports and Online Gaming Association (SCOGA), and Keith Tan, Chief Executive of the Singapore Tourism Board (STB), Bren will also be awarded with its very own M2-themed skin on a MLBB hero of the team’s choice.

With the Grand Finals victory, Bren avenged their 0-2 defeat to BG in the opening Best of Three series of the M2 Playoffs, which forced Bren down to the Lower Bracket and needing to take the longer route to the Grand Finals.

In the process of becoming the new king of MLBB, Bren has also helped the Philippines reclaim the title of the strongest country in MLBB esports, ending Indonesia’s recent dominance by eliminating both Indonesian teams, Alter Ego Esports and RRQ Hoshi, en route to the Grand Finals.

Breaking New Viewership Records

Achieving a staggering 3.08 million peak concurrent global online viewership according to the Esports Charts analytics platform, setting 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.
