BREN Esports gets another crack at Alter Ego at M2 Worlds

BREN Esports will have a shot at redemption come the M2 World Championships this coming January.

The reigning MPL-Philippines Season Six champions will be leading a stacked Group C that also has the likes of MPL-Indonesia grand finalist Alter Ego — the same team that ousted them in the finals of the ONE Esports: MPL Invitational — and 10S Gaming Frost of Japan.

BREN Esports will be bringing in Mico “Coco” Sampang to join Season Six holdovers CJ “Ribo” Ribo, Karl “KarlTzy” Nepomuceno, Allan “Lusty” Castromayor, Angelo “Pheww” Arcangel, David “FlapTzy” Canon, and Efphraim “Ejhay” Sambrano.

Meanwhile, MPL-Philippines second placer Smart Omega will be going up against MPL-Malaysia/Singapore champion Todak along with Cambodia’s Impunity KH in Group B.

Smart Omega will be fielding in Tony “Otit” Senedrin to fortify the seven-man contingent that has EJ “Heath” Esperanza, Adrian “Toshi” Bacallo, Salic “Hadjizy” Imam, Kenneth “Kenji” Villa, Jankurt “KurTzy” Matira, and Jeniel “Haze” Bata-anon.

Group A will have MPL-Myanmar winner Burmese Ghouls, Resurgence of Singapore, and Unique Devu of Russia.

MPL-Indonesia titlist RRQ Hoshi will be bannering Group D along with EVOS Singapore and Brazil’s Dreammax.

The top teams from each bracket will advance to the upper bracket. Meanwhile, the second and third placers of each group will go up against one another in a crossover wherein the winner will advance to the lower bracket.

A total of 16 teams battled it out last year in the first-ever M1 World Championships, but the effects of the on-going coronavirus pandemic forced Moonton to trim it down to 12 this time around.
