Mobile Legends: Bang Bang (ML) is now one of the top mobile Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA) games in the country, thus there is a strong desire to create a tournament for the youths who play it in Iloilo City.
The game was developed by Moonton and was released for Android and iOS back in 2016. It is free-to-play for mobile users, thus making it more accessible compared to other esports titles.
