The Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League – Philippines Season 6 will start its eight-week regular season on Aug. 21.

This is in partnership with presenting sponsor Smart and official sponsor realme.

Legendary battles await

After a historic open qualifier that saw more than 1,000 participants trying their hand at becoming legendary, Cignal Ultra and NXP Solid, the two teams who emerged on top of the four-day contest, have finally joined Aura-PH, Onic-PH, BREN Esports, Execration, Omega PH Esports, Blacklist International, BSB, and Blu Fire, the eight direct invitees, to complete the final 10 participants for the regular season of the country’s largest mobile esports league.

The Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League – Philippines Season 6 regular season will kick off with the two-time silver finishers in Onic-PH going up against the rebuilding dynasty of BREN Esports.

Although the statistics from their past meetings may side with the OhMyVeenus-led squad, we’ll see if the addition of David Charles “FlapTzy” Canon to the decorated esports organization’s roster can bring back the good ol’ “#BrenLangMalakas” battle cry. 

The history-makers clad in a new jersey are set to debut as Aura-PH against Execration, one of the most recognizable names in the league. Will the first ever back-to-back champions start their regular season campaign with a bang or will the charismatic Billy Jazha “Z4pnu” Alfonso be able to lead his team to a massive upset for an opener?

Meanwhile, the Mythical Raffle Draw is back for Season 6. In addition to the exciting matches, more prizes will be given out during the tournament.

Regular season format

Ten of the Philippines’ best Mobile Legends: Bang Bang teams will be divided into two groups of five teams for the regular season.

The regular season will run every weekend starting from Aug. 21 until Oct. 18. Its format will see each team playing two best-of-three series against the other four teams in their group and one best-of-three series versus the five teams of the opposite group.

The teams will receive corresponding points per series played (three points for a 2-0 victory, two points for a 2-1 victory, 1 point for a 1-2 loss, and 0 points for a 0-2 loss) and will be ranked accordingly.

To ensure the safety and health of the teams, staff, partners, and fans amid the ongoing global pandemic caused by COVID-19, the entirety of Season 6 will be played online. All matches will be streamed live via the official Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League – Philippines social media channels.
