Team PH is the first ever GOLD medalist for Mobile Legends Bang Bang in SEA Games

Sibol, the Philippine national esports team, made history after winning the first gold medal in the Southeast Asian Games esports competition, reigning supreme in the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang discipline with a 3-2 win over Indonesia in the finals at the San Juan Arena on Sunday.

It was a tough journey for the Filipino squad. Sibol managed a draw against Thailand to secure a playoff spot. Despite a tough group, which included Indonesia which is considered the strongest team in the tournament, Sibol became the second seed and entered into the lower bracket. Indonesia, on the other hand, topped the group and earned a spot in the upper bracket.


Sibol beat Vietnam in two games in the lower bracket semifinals, before taking down Malaysia to reach the gold medal match.

The 30th Southeast Asian Games marked the first time esports was included in the biennial meet as a medal sport.


Meanwhile, Sibol will play in the gold match match in the Dota 2 competition.

The team, mainly comprised of Team Adroit, tore through Group B with their only loss coming at the hands of Myanmar on Saturday. The loss put them in a match against the best team from Group A, Vietnam.


Sibol Dota 2 stood strong in the first game of series with Mc Nicholson Villanueva, better known as Mac, leading the charts in damage and gold on his Razor. Vietnam had a formidable composition with the Mirana - Disruptor combo but the Filipino's execution was just better. Sibol closed out the game after over 70-minutes of action.

Game 2 favored Vietnam after a couple of kills early on, but Sibol found their own kills and took control of the game en route to the win.

Sibol Dota 2 will play in the gold medal match on Monday where they will face the winner of the lower bracket finals.
