BREN ESPORTS HAILED AS 2020 M2 WORLD CHAMPIONS IN A COME-FROM-BEHIND WIN AGAINST BURMESE GHOULS
Merely surviving from the lower bracket, MPL PH Season 6 champions BREN Esports came out victorious and crowned as the 2020 Mobile Legends: Bang Bang (MLBB) M2 World Champions in a nerve-racking 7-game series, 4-3, in Singapore on Sunday, January 24.
Bren, who is composed of the core members of the 2019 SEA Games gold medalist Philippine team, had to go through a tight 3-1 deciding game against Indonesia’s RRQ Hoshi earlier to barge in the reigning MPL Myanmar champions in the tournament grand finals.
Bren Esports opened the series with a showoff with FlapTzy (Baxia), Pheww (Mathilda), and Lusty (Atlas) providing the space for KarlTzy’s Claude to go into action.
They grabbed a maladroit opportunity of the Burmese Ghouls at the lord area to take down MayBe (Jawhead) and ACE (Yi Shun shin) that led them into a lord take.
KarlTzy (Claude) generated a 5-3-10 KDA that led the squad to clinch the first game in the 20th minute.
They carried the momentum in Game 2 as they ruled the Burmese team in just 12 minutes which was led by Selena’s (Pheww) arrow firing right off the gates that ended a 26-4 kill tally.
In the following games, Bren Esports looked like they had run out of gas which led them to backslide a 3 consecutive loss over the Burmese Ghouls, 3-2, change of lead.
Until in Game 6, KarlTzy went berserk that made its way to the unorthodox tank Brody pick and banned mostly Burmese Ghoul’s core heroes who performed well in the past 2 games, tying the game to 3-3 standing.
Bren Esports saved the best for last as KarlTzy unleashed his comfort hero Claude that led Bren into its stellar world championship.
Bren team member Flaptzy confessed that they took a risk in reselecting their heroes midway in the finals game series.
“‘Yung pinakachallenging part sa akin, yung pagdadraft nila. Kasi paulit ulit lang ang draft namin kaya kailangan naming magstep up para manalo. Ang ginawa namin sumugal kami ng sumugal hanggang sa manalo,” Flaptzy admitted.
KarlTzy was awarded as the Finals MVP and took the $3,000 cash prize.
Bren Esports will take home the lion’s share of the $300,000 pool prize and a cash prize of $140,000 alongside recognition as the best Mobile Legends team in the world.
