Burn X Flash successfully defended their crown in the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League Cambodia Spring 2023 (MPL KH Spring 2023) grand final with a resounding 4-1 victory over CFU Gaming.
This achievement also marked the first back-to-back championship win by any team in Cambodia, following their MPL KH Autumn 2022 win a year ago.
After losing to See You Soon in the upper bracket semifinal, they had to fight their way through the lower bracket where they eliminated PRO Esports and earned a chance to face See You Soon again.
In their second meeting, they were finally able to overcame their opponents to secure a place in the grand final against CFU Gaming.
Filipino import Donut and veteran ATM were the keys to victory for Burn X Flash in the MPL KH Spring 2023 grand final
This strategy proved to be successful as they dominated the game, securing a lopsided 20-7 kill score to keep the series competitive.
In game four, CFU was on the verge of securing another win with a substantial lead in the mid-game after securing an Enhanced Lord at the 16-minute mark.
With only one CFU player remaining, Burn X Flash pushed into the bot lane and secured the match point.
In game five, Burn X Flash stuck with the same lineup of Joy and Beatrix, while CFU drafted two initiators — Grock and Lolita — to counter Burn’s mobile lineup.
Despite flashes of brilliance from CFU in the mid game, the Joy-Beatrix combo proved too much, tearing down CFU’s defenses.
Burn X Flash secured their victory with a wipeout at the 16-minute mark, clinching the grand final win.
With this win, Burn X Flash not only takes home the lion’s share of the US$40,000 prize pool but also earned the opportunity to represent Cambodia in the upcoming Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Southeast Asia Cup 2023 (MSC 2023) on home soil in June.
