The standards for mobile esports just got higher. One of the world's most reputable electronic sport company, ESL Gaming, has extended the reach of its mobile esports ecosystem (ESL Mobile) beyond North America and Europe, with the Asia-Pacific - yes, that includes Southeast Asia - and MENA (Middle East/North Africa) regions joining its ranks, totalling up to more than 80 countries eligible for ESL Mobile.
Mobile esports titles that will be featured in ESL Mobile, includes:
Two ESL Mobile seasons will take place this year, with the ESL Mobile Spring 2021 making its worldwide debut in April. Each season comprises two stages: the ESL Mobile Open and the all-new ESL Mobile Challenge.
The ESL Mobile Open will be open to public, regardless of your skills. Anyone can compete in the aforementioned mobile titles, as they battle through two phases and two more play-ins to advance to the next stage, the ESL Mobile Challenge. The second stage will pit the best Open players against invited top-tier teams in standard regular-season-to-finals format, not to mention that it'll be broadcast all over the world. Season 1 will be adopting an online-only format, but the Finals will be held live at the world's biggest esports events.
And finally, ESL Mobile will allow players to win a share of the whopping US$650,000 prize pool.
Here are the competition dates:
After an unexpected delay due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the ESL Malaysia Championship 2020 Call of Duty: Mobile (CODM) Season 1 Playoffs returned with guns blazing from all four corners (or teams). Needless to say, the CODM tournament culminated in a historical conclusion, which saw 21Huntsmen emerging as its first-ever winning team.
In the Grand Finals last Saturday (11 Apr), 21Huntsmen took down Rampage in a heart-pounding 3-0 match play, with the latter team almost gaining the upper hand in Game 2 before being cancelled out by the huntsmen. Aside from that slight bump, no one throughout the tournament has come close to beating the champion team, with 21Huntsmen taking down the opposing teams left and right before figuratively lifting the championship trophy. Even 21Huntsmen's Wenn took home the MVP title for his excellent gameplay, positioning and gun picks, especially in the upper bracket finals against defending champions, Axis Esports, in which they also won 3-0.
For their outstanding performance, the champion team won the spoils of RM20,000 and JBL goodies to up their game.
Sponsored by Yoodo and JBL, the Playoffs for the ESL Malaysia Championship 2020 CODM Season 1 were supposed to be held on 21 Mar at Battle Arena Malaysia before being postponed for the safety of the community due to COVID-19. Fortunately, news came on 27 Mar that the top four teams - 21Huntsmen, Axis Esports, Rampage and Mysterious VIP - will settle their rivalry in an online format on 11 Apr.
