MPL PH Season 7 is the new season of the professional Mobile Legends: Bang Bang league in the Philippines. In our article, we will tell you about the tournament’s success and improvement of its results compared to last season. Spoiler: the league has set a new record!
The league in the Philippines was held from March 19th to May 30th. Unlike the Indonesian championship, one can enter MPL PH through the open qualifiers. At the same time, the qualifiers attracted 81.4K viewers. To compare, Spring Sweet Spring #2 in CS:GO with a prize of $100K attracted only 35K peak viewers.
As a result, ten teams took part in the event, and this season the victory went to Blacklist International for the first time. The team couldn’t rise above the 5-6th spots during the two previous seasons and took the 9-12th place at ONE Esports MPL Invitational – so their current victory in the league means complete success for the organization.
When it comes to the matches, the final between BI and Execration attracted 1.4M peak viewers! This is an all-time record for the region, considering the peak viewers mark being up 84.3% when compared to the league's sixth season. Average viewers indicator also increased by 52%.
However, in the list of popular teams based on the average viewers indicator, BI took only 3rd spot with a result of 256K average viewers. NXP.SOLID became the event’s favorite with 312K average viewers. And that’s even though the team started in the lower bracket and played only one match in the playoffs. Their match vs. Work-A opened the first day of the final stage and, as a result, became the second most popular encounter for the entire season – gathering 797K viewers.
The Philippines has maintained positive growth dynamics for five consecutive seasons and keeps updating the metric-based records. In addition to the general increase in the ML:BB audience, the organizers are stirring up the audience’s interest with various in-game “goodies” in the form of chests containing awards.
The MPL PH S7 was broadcast on four platforms, and Facebook became the most popular of them with its 761K viewers. In addition to Filipino-speaking viewers, English and Indonesian fans watched the streams as well, as the organizers provided official broadcasts for these languages.
The Philippines is the second-largest MPL region in terms of viewership statistics. It fell short of about 430K viewers from overtaking MPL ID Season 7, the discipline’s top region.
