THE 2021 One Esports MPL: Invitational bracket has already been finalized with a lot of twists and turns and potential storylines underway.

Each of the recent MPL champions from Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, and the Philippines were tasked to select from the list of Southeast Asian MPL teams that have qualified for the tournament.

MPL Preview: Can these enigma teams break the code?

Champion PH coach Kristofer “BON CHAN” Ricaplaza of Blacklist International made an interesting selection as he pitted the Cambodian champions, SeeYouSoon, against Malaysian powerhouse, Todak. Both of these teams could potentially surprise the community given their enigma status.

During the draft phase, he explained his reasons for selecting the Cambodian representatives.
