It was a pretty intense weekend for the mobile MOBA scene as two Filipino teams were crowned champions. Aside from Bren Esports winning the Mobile Legends M2 World Championship, ex-LoL squad, Team Rebengga, cruised to victory at Team Secret’s Wild Rift Scouting Grounds Tournament.
The three-day online competition saw 16 teams and 80 players competing for a shot at making Team Secret’s Wild Rift pro team.
Team Rebengga is composed of League of Legends players Kurt “Rebengga” Cristobal, Neil “Mirmoooo” Gabriel, Keiya “XDXP” Laureta, aspiring professional player Azar, and former LoL pro, Cedrick “Ivalice” Santos.
Team Rebengga faced off against Exosen and Friends with previous Team Liyab bot laner Eric “Exosen” Allen Gubatan at the helm. It was a one-sided best-of-five series as Team Rebengga delivered an impressive 3-0 to take home US$500. Exosen and Friends never had the chance to bounce back especially after the second and third game, where Team Rebengga emerged with not even a single death.
“Ultimately, teamwork separates the top teams from the normal teams. When you look at our games for this series, we were always complete, we stick together, we always have the right communication like who will dive in first, stuff like that,” said team captain Rebengga.
Additionally, Team Secret’s first Wild Rift professional player, James “Hamez” Santos, revealed that he was impressed by Team Rebengga’s teamwork in a post-match interview.
Hamez is the sole player on Team Secret’s Wild Rift team, playing as support. Team Secret’s full Wild Rift roster will be revealed soon, so fans should stay tuned on the organization’s social accounts.
