ML remains in Vietnam SEAG slate as Starcraft, Dota removed

Mobile Legends: Bang Bang is set for a comeback in the 31st Southeast Asian Games hosted by Vietnam.

Vietnam’s Minister of Culture, Sports, and Tourism, Nguyen Ngoc Thien officially signed the list of esports events last March 24, Wednesday.

Bannered by Karl “KarlTzy” Nepomuceno and Angelo “Pheww” Arcangel back in 2019, the Philippines was able to capture the SEA Games gold medal at the expense of a powerhouse Indonesia squad which was composed of members of the EVOS Legends, which was coming off a momentous victory in the M1 World Championship.

Allan “Lusty” Castromayor, Jeniel “Haze” Bata-anon, and Kenneth “Kenji” Villa completed Sibol’s starting five while CJ “Ribo” Ribo and Jay “Jay” Torculas rounded up the squad.

The core of KarlTzy, Pheww, and Lusty went on to join Ribo in BREN Esports after the SEA Games. They have won an MPL-Philippines title, a The Nationals championship, and the M2 World Championship since.

Also making its return in the regional biennial meet is Arena of Valor.

Unfortunately, game titles such as Starcraft II and Dota 2, in which both the Philippines won gold medals, was not included in the final list of events.

League of Legends, CrossFire, and FIFA Online 4 will complete the PC games while PUBG Mobile and League of Legends: Wild Rift will join Mobile Legends and AOV in the mobile category.

The Games are will run from November 21 to December in Hanoi.
