SHANGHAI Moonton Technology Co. Ltd. promises that more action-packed Moba (multiplayer online battle arsenal) game matches will continue to explode at the third season of Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League Philippines, as the smartest and deadliest Filipino teams wrestle for the $25,000 (around P1,305,937.50 at US$1 to P52.24) grand prize and a chance to campaign in the Southeast Asian league.
Two teams from the local league will advance to the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Southeast Asia Cup 2019 and will compete against the best players from Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Myanmar, Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos, according to Moonton e-Sports Manager JingJie Lin.
The teams from the second season racing for the grand prize and a chance to fight in the regional cup this year include the following: Cignal Ultra (Season 2 champions backed by Cignal TV Inc.), Bren Esports of BrenPro Inc., Sterling Global Dragons, Execration, Aether Atlas and Evos.PH Gaming.
Meanwhile, the teams from the main qualifiers include No Limits/Bren Esports-Limitless, Finesse Phoenix, ArkAngel and ArkAngel Ownage. Each of these teams will face nine other teams in a round-robin, according to Joy Calulo, league administrator at MET Events.
Each team will clash against all the others in a best-of-three match, Lin said.
The $100,000 pool prize is already contested in the regular season, according to Calulo, adding that each team will race for points into the playoffs.
'Only eight teams will proceed to the playoffs, which are the eight teams with the most number of points,' Calulo said.
The teams will receive a salary for each week during 'the entirety of the group stage.' However, Calulo declined to reveal the amount.
