The largest mobile esports league in Southeast Asia mounts its return in the Philippines following the success of its preceding season that saw Sunspark’s momentous hoisting of the MPL-PH trophy. Their best-of-five grand final bout against ONIC PH will be forever etched in the annals of the tournament’s history as it gave birth to the iconic Arrival play that spoiled the then rookie’s otherwise perfect league debut.
The grand finalists last season were also bestowed with the right to represent the Philippines in the inaugural M1 World Championship 2019, the international Mobile Legends: Bang Bang tournament graced by 14 countries from around the world. The Malaysia-based competition featured a staggering $250,000 USD prize pool, the lion’s share of which was bagged by the eventual champions, Indonesia’s EVOS Legends.
Meanwhile, with the elimination of two championship title holders—Cignal Ultra and ArkAngel—last MPL-PH season, partnered with the rather chaotic roster shuffle that saw familiar faces donning jerseys of teams they used to compete against, the journey towards being legendary this season is expected to be fiercer. Gone, may be, are the go-to favorites but the top-notch Mobile Legends: Bang Bang action surely remains.
The MPL-PH Season 5 kicked off earlier this month catering to all hopefuls nationwide in a two-day online qualifier. The teams who survived the single-elimination meet advanced to the main qualifiers, wherein two slots for the regular season are at stake. After a grueling set round-robin matchups, GOSU and BSB emerged from the fray the top-eight teams of the MPL-PH Season 4—Blacklist International (formerly EVOS PH), STI (formerly Ownage), Bren Esports, Geek Fam, Execration, SGD Omega, ONIC PH, and the defending champions, Sunsparks—in the regular season.
For 5th seasons participating teams include Sunsparks, Onic PH, SGD Omega, Execration, Bren Sports, Geek Fam, Blacklist International (former EVOS PH) and STI (former Ownage).
