The first week of Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League – Philippines has come to a close. Aura PH remain undefeated but it hasn’t looked easy while many other teams find mixed results.

Omega PH vs. Blacklist International:

While Blacklist International were successful in their opener, Omega PH turned out to be too strong in their meeting on Sunday. It was a battle of attrition with neither team giving up very much but it was BI who got the go ahead map. Omega wouldn’t go quietly into the night, however, and bounced back to take the remaining two maps with the third going 22 minutes.

Blu Fire vs. ONIC PH:

The theme of three maps would last the day as Blu Fire and ONIC kept the trend alive. Blu Fire come out on fire, finishing the game in under 14 minutes with a massive 13-2 lead in kills, impressing spectators against the Season 5 runner ups. The second and third maps would not go as smoothly for the new comes, however, as ONIC turned the tides and took map two on the back of a 23-9 outing and strong pushes. The third map would be the closest as Blu Fire made their final stand. The numbers became too much, however, and ONIC took the map and series.

Aura PH vs. BSB:

Although Aura PH are considered the favorites, they haven’t had an easy path and today was no different. While the first game was slow going due to early pauses, Aura managed to maintain their composure and set themselves ahead 1-0. Map two would swing the way of BSB thanks to an MVP performance from Drixx (12/1/7) which saw Aura once again need a third map to take down their opponents. Once again, that’s exactly what happened as Aura returned to take a lead in the game and ride that lead to the eventual victory and 2-1 series win.
