BREN Esports is the most dominant squad heading into the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League-Philippines Season Six playoffs.
That was the unanimous opinion by MPL-PH shoutcasters Butters, Manjean, Rockhart, and Wolf.
On Wednesday’s episode of the Tiebreaker Vods’ Beyond The Meta, presented by SMART, the esports analysts revealed why BREN is the favorite to go all the way in the sixth offering of MPL-PH.
And it is not just because they were the top seed in Group B after the eliminations, losing just one of their 13 matches for 34 points, seven ahead of second-seeded Omega PH Esports.
“BREN Esports is the most dominant, hindi lang sa stats although sila ‘yung [most] wins and sila ‘yung pinaka maraming points,” said Wolf.
“I think sila rin ‘yung may pinaka magandang improvement from the previous season kaya for me it’s definitely BREN Esports.”
Last season, BREN was also in pole position entering the playoffs, but it was all downhill from there.
The top seed had two chances to advance to the Grand Finals, however, they struggled in both matches.
In their initial chance, eventual champions Sunsparks swept BREN in the Upper Bracket Finals, which relegated the latter to the Lower Bracket Finals.
There, the top-ranked BREN was upset by ONIC PH, 2-1, to end their stint.
But this time around, the shoutcasters believe BREN is making a run for Aura PH’s (then Sunsparks) back-to-back crowns.
“I really think that BREN is the strongest right now. Talagang sinabi ng stats, sinabi rin ng performance nila. Isang beses lang silang natalo sa series and ang laking statement noon for the team,” said Manjean.
Casters Rockhart and Butters have the same explanation as to why they think BREN is the ultimate favorite to win MPL-PH Season Six: consistency.
Losing just one series is enough to prove how consistent and well-oiled this BREN squad.
“Consistency lang talaga. I think BREN Esports definitely hit the marker on a lot, kung may checklist ka ng win conditions of a team that’s strong, I think BREN has 90 percent of that already,” said Rockhart.
“Para sa akin hindi lang ‘yung lakas ng team eh. Kumbaga ang tinitingnan na natin dito at this part of the tournament, it’s all about consistency. It’s not easy to perform day in and day out, and [BREN] did that,” shared Butters.
