Smart has just lauded the sensational run of Execration at the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Southeast Asia Cup 2021 (MSC 2021) where the Filipino team was crowned champions of the region.
Execration had a “Cinderella-run” as they battled their way through the Lower Bracket after dropping early to Indonesia’s EVOS Legends. The Filipino team survived against Cambodia’s Impunity KH, Malaysia’s RSG MY to get to the Lower Bracket Finals.
The Filipinos once again faced EVOS Legends in the Lower Bracket Finals, but this time, Execration found their stride to earn their spot in the Grand Finals.
“We congratulate Execration for their sensational performance at this year’s MSC, proving yet again that we Filipinos have what it takes to dominate esports in the world stage.”

“We also take pride in the fact that both of our Filipino teams made it to the grand finals. More than setting the bar high for esports success, they have surely inspired more gamers and fans to go all out on their passions with a deeper purpose. With passionate and dedicated esports teams and athletes, there’s no doubt that the future is bright for Philippine esports,” Basas added.
