LOOK: Highlights From The M5 World Championship Gala

No one’s said that the calm before the storm can’t be filled with fun and festivities.

Last November 30, just before the biggest tournament of the year, our competitors took some time to have fun and relax at the M5 World Championship Gala. Just like with the MSC Gala earlier this year, this is a time for players to unwind, mingle, and enjoy their stay here in the Philippines.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a gala if the attendees didn’t have a chance to show off some style. From traditional garbs to more formal fashion, all the players came in dressed to impress.

And since the gala was streamed live, the fans had a lot to say about the players’ choice of attire. They were given the opportunity to vote for who was the best-dressed team and player for the evening. With the winners chosen, you can be the judge of the fans’ sense of style.

Rocking the Night Away

Throughout the evening, our international players participated in games and activities. Esports doesn’t have to be so serious all the time, and if there’s one thing Pinoys know what to do, it’s how to have fun.

It was an evening of laughter and camaraderie as international competitors got the time to know each other as people. After all, they are still just players and fans of Mobile Legends.

You can relive the M5 World Championship Gala on the MPL Philippines YouTube channel.
