AP.Bren continues dominance with an MPL PH Season 12 championship title
From the get-go, AP.Bren displayed a dominating performance, consistently outplaying Blacklist International, known as the Codebreakers, in the first two games. Their prowess on the virtual battlefield was evident, not allowing their opponents to gain any significant traction.
However, in a surprising twist during Game 3, Stephen “Sensui” Castillo of Blacklist International made a strategic move. Opting for a Kaja pick in a Terizla, Ixia, Mathilda, and Farams lineup, the Codebreakers crafted a high-sustain team composition. This unexpected play caught the Killer Bees off guard, allowing Blacklist International to secure their sole win of the series.
But the Killer Bees were quick to adapt. They countered Blacklist International’s strategies, including a daring roaming Akai maneuver by Renejay “RENEJAY” Barcase. Despite the Codebreakers’ best efforts to decipher AP.Bren’s game plan, they couldn’t achieve the breakthrough they desperately sought. Consequently, Blacklist International concluded the series with only a single victory to their name.
This season’s conclusion sets the stage for an even grander event. Both AP.Bren and Blacklist International are gearing up to represent the Philippines in the forthcoming M5 World Championship. The stakes are high as the two teams are determined to continue the Philippines’ winning streak on the global stage, a legacy that dates back to the M2 Championship.
The M5 World Championship promises to be an electrifying event, especially with the surprising absence of ECHO, the current world champions, who did not qualify this year. The question on everyone’s mind is: Who will rise to the occasion and claim the coveted world championship trophy?
