All the MLBB World Championship winners from M1 to M3
EVOS Legends – M1 World Championship (2019)
Moonton held the M1 World Championship in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Sixteen of the best Mobile Legends teams took centerstage, watched by a live audience.
Indonesia dominated the tournament, and rivals EVOS Legends and RRQ Hoshi eventually faced off in the grand final. The match between the two teams was action-packed, but EVOS Legends persevered, and became the first-ever MLBB World Championship winner, bringing home US$250,000 in prize money.
Bren Esports – M2 World Championship (January 2021)
The COVID-19 pandemic meant that Moonton had to make certain adjustments to the second iteration of the MLBB World Championship.
Initially planned to happen in November 2020 in Jakarta, Indonesia, it was moved to January 2021, and was held at Singapore instead without a live audience.
Nevertheless, it was an exciting series, as 12 of the qualified teams were eager to win it all. In the end, it was the Philippines’ Bren Esports who came out on top after defeating Myanmar’s Burmese Ghouls, 4-3, in another tightly-contested series.
Blacklist International – M3 World Championship (December 2021)
The M3 World Championship was held in Singapore again in December 2021. This time, 16 teams participated, and the prize pool rose from US$300K last M2 World Championship, to US$800K for the M3 World Championship.
In this iteration, two of the Philippine representatives, ONIC PH and Blacklist International, made their mark after making it through the upper bracket and lower bracket, respectively.
Blacklist eventually swept ONIC PH at the grand final with a 4-0 score. With the win, Blacklist International was hailed as the third MLBB World Championship winner.
