After winning it all in 2023, AP Bren remains unstoppable as it seeks to add more feathers to its cap by winning more titles this year.

Bannered by skipper Angelo Kyle “Pheww” Arcangel with David “Flap” Canon, Kyle “KyleTzy” Sayson, Rowgien “Owgwen” Unigo, Marco “Super Marco” Requitano, Vincent “Pandora” Unigo, AP Bren shoots for another title as it sees action in the Mobile Legends: Mid Season Cup this year.

What used to be an annual battle among the best teams in Southeast Asia, MSC had evolved into an international tournament after Moonton Games decided to include Turkey, Middle East and North Africa, and North America to the list of competing countries.

The evolution had made it tougher but AP Bren is determined to win it to finally clinch the only title missing in its collection of accolades.

“I was not focused on getting a second title, I was focused on winning the world titles for my teammates, especially for the new players and coach Vren,” Pheww said referring to KyleTzy, Owgwen, and Super Marco as well as coach Vrendon “Vren” Pesebre after winning the M5 World Championship.

“Next time, we want to win the MSC.”

AP Bren coach Francis “Ducky” Glindro agrees, saying that winning the MSC is among their goals for the coming year.

“I was not playing for the world title,” he said, stressing that the MSC crown is the only jewel missing in his trophy collection.

“Titles are titles, but I was ultimately rooting for my new (players) and the new management to win a world championship. I have my eyes set on MSC. I do not have an MSC title just yet which is pretty ironic when I said that titles do not really matter. I just want my boys to win it all.”

The year that passed truly belonged to AP Bren, which used to be known as Bren Esports.

In fact, it represented the Sibol in the 32nd Southeast Asian Games last May in Cambodia in which it finished with a gold medal.

Four months later, AP Bren became a world champion anew when it won the 2023 IESF World Championship in Iasi, Romania.

They eventually became a two-time Mobile Legends Professional League Philippines champion by winning MPL Season 12 that gave them a ticket to the M5 Mobile Legends World Championship.

They capped the year by winning their second M5 crown that was witnessed by a massive home crowd at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum.

Flap, on the other hand, aims to focus on honing his skills even more.

Benched and counted out in the past, Flap etched one of the greatest comebacks in Esports history after he rededicated himself to Mobile Legends.

“Right now I am super happy because I gave my teammates a world championship,” Flap, the MPL and M5 Most Valuable Player, said.

“I am also happy for me, coach Ducky, and Pheww for winning a second world title. I just hope that we do not give up on improving. I hope we can continue this legacy and improve more.”
