MPL-PH Season 13 Playoffs adapting a new Gauntlet format; Live on May 22 to 26

The Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League Philippines (MPL-PH) Season 13 Playoffs is now all set and teams have been placed in a new gauntlet tournament bracket format based on their regular season standings. There were six teams that advanced to the playoffs and in this new playoffs bracket, the top three teams are rewarded by being in the third round already wherein losing a series does not mean instant elimination since there’s a lower bracket. Meanwhile, the 5th-6th teams need to win two do-or-die series in order to advance to the third round. Here is the placement of the teams in this gauntlet format that the MPL-PH S13 will adapt for this season’s playoffs.


All series will be best-of-5 aside from the Grand Finals series that would be best-of-7. Match 1 will be Blacklist International versus Minana EVOS. The winner of that match will then face ONIC PH. Whoever survived in this 4th-6th seed matches will face the top seed AP Bren for match 3. The match 4 is already set to be the 2nd-3rd seed match between ECHO and RSG PH. The losing teams of match 1 and match 2 will outright exit the playoffs while the losing teams of match 3 and match 4 will have another chance for a title run at the lower bracket. Starting match 3, it will be similar to the traditional double-bracket elimination format.


Match 1 and Match 2 will both happen on May 22, 2024. Match 3 and Match 4 on May 23, 2024. The upper bracket finals and lower bracket semi-finals will be on May 24, 2024. The lower bracket finals will be on May 25, 2024 and lastly, Grand Finals on May 26, 2024. Matches will happen on-site at SM Southmall, Las Piñas City.
