Pirates loom as CCE favorites

Off the heels of a successful inaugural season, the Collegiate Center for Esports dives right back to action next month for Season 2 featuring an even stronger, bolder and better competition in the Land of Dawn.

With an expected even playing field on deck, 10 schools and universities are raring to strut their stuff anew in Mobile Legends: Bang Bang starting on 4 November in a collective bid to strengthen the Esports movement in the collegiate ranks.

Season 1 champion Lyceum of the Philippines University still looms as the tournament favorite with an intact core led by Most Valuable Player Mark Kenneth de los Reyes, a student of the country’s first-ever Esports academic program.

The Pirates also reigned supreme in the Varsity Cup that served as a launching event of CCE as the newest collegiate Esports league in the country.

While that should be enough indications for another Lyceum coronation, it is not expected to be a walk in the park with a hungrier opposition in the way led by runner-up and its fierce rival San Sebastian College.

The Stags got swept, 0-2, in Season 1 grand finals that was held before a jampacked crowd at the SM Mall of Asia Music Hall, making them extra motivated to hammer a revenge.
