/ 13 July 2021

The MPL veteran, Raven “L3bron” Alonzo used to play Aether Valkyrie for Setsuna “Dogie” Ignacio’s teams in Season 1 and last saw action in Season 3. Now, he will return to the scene and man Bren Esports on the team’s bid this upcoming season.

Bren Esports also added the returning MPL legend Mico “Coco” Sampang of the team who was lined up as the sixth man in the M2 World Championships but was not able to play in any games. 

The team also acquired two new faces, Malik and Rimuru in which Malik was reportedly top 1 in global ranking and top 1 Ling holder in Manila. 

Bren Esports 10-man roster also comprised of M2 World Champions Karl “KarlTzy” Nepomuceno, two-time MPL champions Angelo “Pheww” Arcangel, CJ “Ribo” Ribo, and Allan “Lusty” Castromayor, together with the team’s sixth-man in previous seasons Efphraim “Ejhay” Sambrano and former MPL Season 6 wildcard FlapTzy. 

BREN Esports continuously proved their dominance by winning their second MPL trophy in Season 6, The Nationals Season Two, and the M2 World Championship.

However, the team has been shaken up after falling short in the last season where they landed fourth place after losing against Blacklist International (reigned as MPL 7 Champions) in the upper bracket and defeated in the hands of Execration.
