MYANMAR, 16 October – Falcon Esports soared to the highest spot after bagging the championship title in M4 World Championship: Myanmar Qualifiers.
The team put Fenix Esports to its resting nest and took home the crown and the lion’s share of the prize pool worth USD 10,000.
Falcon Esports is headed by a Filipino coach Dale Vitug who’s viewed to be one of the pioneers of MLBB in the country.
In a best-of-five (BO5) series, Falcon Esports clenched its sharp talons on Fenix Esports during their championship match on Sunday. Strutting off with a 3:1, the Burmese quintet cemented their win for the upcoming M4 in Jakarta, Indonesia. The world championship is scheduled on January of 2023.
Meanwhile, Galacticos Rising settled in third place after sweeping the best-of-five series against 9K Esports x Miracle Gaming.
Falcon Esports were also Myanmar’s representative at the previous MLBB Southeast Asia Cup (MSC) 2022 and finished in fourth place.
“This victory proves that Falcon Esports can represent Myanmar’s strength in MLBB esports. We are hopeful that they can conquer the world stage and strive for higher glory,” stated Ray Ng of MOONTON Games.
A total of 256 teams signed up for the Myanmar Qualifiers to represent the country. The qualifier stage took place from September 10-15, 2022. The group stage followed October 1-2, 2022, wherein Falcon Esports and Fenix Esports led Groups A and B, respectively.
M4 Myanmar Qualifier also broke the domestic tournament peak concurrent views data, reaching up to 200,000 views on YouTube and Facebook during the group stage (viewership details pending from Esports Chart’s update).
Dale is the second Filipino tactician to head to M4 with a foreign team. He will be joining John Michael “Zico” Dizon who secured a ticket of his own with his Cambodian team Burn x Flash.
