After dropping the opening match, KarlTzy and Bren Esports string 3 straight wins to eliminate RRQ Hoshi and set up a rematch with the Burmese Ghouls for the title

KarlTzy and Bren Esports clinched a coveted spot in the grand finals of the Mobile Legends M2 World Championships in Singapore after eliminating RRQ Hoshi on Sunday, January 24.

Dropping the opening match of the best-of-five lower bracket finals, Bren Esports strung up 3 straight wins to stun RRQ Hoshi of Indonesia and set up a rematch with the Burmese Ghouls of Myanmar for the championship.

KarlTzy shone anew for the Filipinos, putting on a masterclass with Lancelot and Claude in Game 3 and Game 4 as Bren Esports knocked all Indonesian teams out of the tournament after beating Alter Ego earlier.

With the grand finals within reach, KarlTzy tallied 12 kills and 6 assists against only 1 death with Claude in the series-clinching Game 4, which ended in just 12:30 minutes.

FlapTzy made his presence felt in Game 4 with 1 kill and 16 assists against 4 deaths with Baxia, while Ribo issued a perfect game of 4 kills and 9 assists against 0 deaths with Pharsa.

RRQ Hoshi lost early control of the map, and with its resources depleted, Bren Esports wrapped up the series with a 21-10 kill difference.

The same thing happened in Game 3, where Bren Esports finished the match in only 12:40 minutes after tallying more than twice as many kills, 19-7, and not allowing RRQ Hoshi to destroy any of its turrets.

KarlTzy bullied RRQ Hoshi in Game 3 with 9 kills and 8 assists against 0 deaths with Lance, while Pheww backstopped him with 4 kills and 10 assists against 2 deaths with Selena.

Lusty also had a stellar performance in Game 3 with 1 kill and 12 assists against 2 deaths with Mathilda.

The win was a revenge of sorts for Bren Esports against RRQ Hoshi, which eliminated Filipino squad Omega Esports earlier in the tournament.

Bren Esports will seek redemption against the Burmese Ghouls in the grand finals after the Myanmar team swept and relegated the Filipino crew to the lower bracket earlier in the playoffs.

The best-of-seven grand finals is slated at 6 pm on Sunday. –
