The Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League—Philippines Season 6, in partnership with presenting sponsor Smart and official sponsor realme, holds its playoffs on October 22 to 25.
After 151 action-packed Mobile Legends: Bang Bang games in one of the most historic regular seasons to date, eight teams, Aura PH, Blacklist International, BREN Esports, Cignal Ultra, Execration, NXP Solid, Omega PH Esports, and Onic PH have now inched closer to claiming the MPL-PH Season 6 championship title as they all qualify for the grand culmination of the country’s biggest mobile esports league.
The MPL-PH Season 6 playoffs will be introducing a revamped format. From the double-elimination bracket from the previous seasons, all qualified teams this season will now compete in a single-elimination playoffs bracket.
Combined with the storyline-filled matchups in the first round, the sudden death factor that the new single-elimination format brings increases the stakes for each series, thus giving viewers more reasons to tune in.
The matchups were based on each respective team’s standings from the regular season. The top seed from each group will face the fourth seed of their opposing group. The second seed, meanwhile, will be matched against the third seed of the opposite group.
Each playoffs series will also see an increase in the number of games. All series from the first round to the battle for third-place has been turned from a best-of-three to a best-of-five. The grand finals, on the other hand, will now employ a best-of-seven series instead of the usual best-of-five. While this change surely makes each series more interesting and exciting, it also hopes to celebrate the competitiveness of each team.
More than a series of action-packed Mobile Legends: Bang Bang games from the country’s best teams, the MPL-PH Season 6 playoffs will also be hosting a KOL showmatch featuring Akosi Dogie and ChooxTV. Both prominent community figures will be leading their own sets of teams to clash on October 25, 2020.
A $1,000 bonus will also be awarded for the Finals MVP rated by the official of the league on top of the lion’s share of the $54,000 playoffs prize pool.
After the culmination of the MPL-PH Season 6, an upcoming regional tournament is also in the works at the end of the year. This will give Filipino MLBB fans more reasons to cheer for their favorite teams as the country gets to send their very-own delegate for the competition. Stay tuned for more details!
