Xiaomi Philippines will hold a Mobile Legends tournament

Participants will use the newly-released Mi 9T Pro

Mobile Legends (ML) is one of the most popular Android games today. Chances are, you already heard about it and seen the game being played almost everywhere. It’s a game as ubiquitous as Defense of the Ancients (DOTA) — the popular game that made the Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA) genre famous.

Seeing the popularity of ML in the country, Xiaomi Philippines is holding its first ever ML tournament happening this September 28 at SM Megamall.

During the day of the tournament, the Xiaomi store will become a gaming arena. Eight ML teams will compete using the Mi 9T Pro. The participants of the winning team will each receive a Mi 9T Pro. During the tournament, Xiaomi will also provide an exclusive sneak peek on its own game, Speed Legend.

Xiaomi announced the participants in the tournament last September 25, so it’s too late to form a team and join. However, it will give away a Mi 9T Pro at the tournament to one lucky spectator. To win a Mi 9T Pro, the spectator must snap a photo of the event, upload it on social media, and use the hashtags #TakeMiOn, #Mi9TPro, and #PerformanceInFull. Xiaomi will announce the winner at the end of the event.

To know more about the tournament, head to Xiaomi Philippines’ Facebook page.

With the Mi 9T Pro, playing Mobile Legends will be a breeze.

The 2019 Wrapped will include songs, albums, artists, and podcasts you listened to throughout the year, and the artists you listened to the most throughout the decade. When I saw my wrap-up, I found it funny how I listen to the same songs every year. Spotify knows what songs we obsess over.

Furthermore, Spotify highlights the places where your top artists hail from through a world map. Additionally, podcasts are added to the “Wrapped” experience.
