Team Lilgun wins the Phygital Games 9 in MLBB

The large-scale tournament in Mobile Legends: Bang Bang (MLBB) that was held in preparation for the Games of the Future international multi-sport tournament has ended in Kazan. Teams from Russia, Turkey, Myanmar, and Mongolia made it to the finals.

The day started with the third-place match . The Russian club played a team from Turkey. Fire Flux Impunity came to the game more prepared and managed to beat Deus Vult in a short time. The team needed just two games to win.

The final match was different from the other games of the tournament. The finals had a Bo5 format (to win, the team needed to score 3 victories). FalconEsports started with a confident victory but did not plan to concede to Team Lilgun and destroyed their opponent twice with a 2:1. The fourth match kept all the participants in suspense until the very end — no one doubted the victory of Falcon Esports and reaching the final, fifth game, but the Mongolian club turned the tide of the match at the very last moment and won on the match and in the tournament.

Head of the Games of the Future project Igor Stolyarov explained why the mobile game tournament attracted a large number of viewers not only to the online broadcast, but also to the tournament site in Kazan:

"MLBB is quite a popular game. But do not forget that the Phygital Games and Games of the Future are a strong brand that constantly attracts new groups of spectators. We have launched an advertising campaign, we are running a campaign to increase brand awareness. Because of this, the potential accumulates, so in the eyes of the community, we have acquired the traits of a great sports coordinator.

According to the latest data, the number of views of our broadcasts on MLBB has exceeded 6,000,000 people. That's quite a serious bid for success. We have big and ambitious goals for the Phygital Games 9 in terms of attracting online viewers. I can say that for the first time in the history of the Games, we have launched an awareness-raising campaign to increase the visibility of our MLBB and Dota 2 tournaments. This explains why online broadcasts have been such a success.

But this is only a small fraction of what we wanted to achieve. 6 million is, of course, good, but we are not stopping there," emphasized Igor Stolyarov.

From July 24 to July 27, the Kazan Expo IEC will host the Phygital Games 9 in Dota 2. Attending the tournament is free, but you need to book a seat on the website.

The Phygital Games are a series of test competitions in phygital disciplines ahead of the Games of the Future, which comprise competitions in 16 hybrid disciplines. Each discipline combines the concept of “phygital”(physical + digital), uniting traditional sports and eSports or VR/AR technology and testing both the physical fitness of athletes and their digital dexterity. The Games of the Future tournament will be held in Kazan from February 23 to March 2, 2024.
