The Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League-Philippines Open Qualifiers has set another record last Wednesday.
A total of 3,040 teams signed up for the MPL-Philippines Season Seven Open Qualifiers – breaking the 1,024 record set in the Season Six Open Qualifiers.
The teams will be divided into 16 groups for the open qualifiers. The top two teams from each group will then qualify for the Main Qualifiers.
Eight teams will compete in a double-elimination bracket sans the grand final match. All games will be a best-of-three series.
Lastly, only the top two teams from the Main Qualifiers will join defending champion BREN Esports, grand finalist Omega Esports, Execration, ONIC PH, Aura PH, Blacklist International, Nexplay Solid, and Cignal Ultra in the main draw.
Teams to watch out for are Setsuna “Akosi Dogie” Ignacio’s Nexplay Salty EZPORTS, and Nexplay Liquid; Philippine national team coach Brian “Panda” Lim’s Playbook Esports; and former MPL participants ULVL and ArkAngel.
The open qualifiers will begin on January 22, Friday.
