The region of champions is gearing up for yet another intense showdown from May 4 to 7.
The Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League Philippines Season 11 playoffs (MPL PH Season 11 playoffs) will feature six teams competing for a chance to win the lion’s share of the US$150,000 prize pool.
Two teams will also have the privilege of representing the country in the upcoming Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Southeast Asia Cup 2023 (MSC 2023) in Cambodia next month.
Blacklist International is looking to defend its title, but that won’t be easy as they will have to face off against Bren Esports who have done exceptionally well in the regular season, and the M4 world champion ECHO, who is looking to win their first MPL PH title.
MPL PH Season 11 playoffs format
The playoffs will feature a hybrid elimination format.
Blacklist International, Smart Omega, RSG Slate PH, and ONIC PH, will compete in the play-ins stage to secure a spot in the next round.
The next round will adopt a double-elimination format, with all matches played in a best-of-five series.
Bren Esports and ECHO, who finished first and second in the regular season, respectively, have been granted a bye and will start directly in the upper bracket semifinal.
The playoffs will culminate in a grand final, which will be a best-of-seven series.
