Mobile Legends: Bang Bang was first released in July 2016. With over 100 million installs on Android, it has become a very popular game especially among Southeast Asian countries. With millions of active players worldwide, Mobile Legends has faced controversies. One particular case is against 'League of Legends' where Moonton faced an infringement case. That aside, the developers of the game decided to hold the first Mobile Legends Southeast Asia Cup.

The details of the MSC

Teams from 6 nations have registered and fought for the spot as representatives for the cup in June.

Now, 'Mobile Legends: Bang Bang' is proceeding to the finals of the Mobile Legends Southeast Asia Cup. The tournament will be held at Atrium Mall Taman Anggrek, Indonesia from September 1-3, 2017. The eight finalists of the 6-nations finals are as follows;

  • Salty Salad (Philippines)
  • Solid Gaming Alpha (Philippines)
  • Team Saiyan (Malaysia)
  • Mya Jr (Malaysia)
  • Idonotsleep (Thailand)
  • Impunity (Singapore)
  • Saints Indo (Indonesia)
  • Elite8 Esports (Indonesia)

The officials have released the official tournament brackets for the season. The eight finalist will battle face to face for the grand finals based on the official brackets. The players will fly to Indonesia to take part in the Esport tournament. Vivo Indonesia is a sponsor of the tournament and streaming was assisted by Bigo Live.

This is by far the biggest mobile tournament with a $100 000 prize pool. Players are asked about their favorite teams in a popularity vote. It is not only the MSC finalists who will receive amazing rewards but also the players who support the tournament by voting and participating in surveys. Diamonds, skins, and other in-game items are in store for all the players during the whole duration of the MSC tournament.

Each team contains members of one squad and they are not allowed to switch players unless permission is granted. The team with the most points will win the game if a base is not yet destroyed within the time allotted.

For this, team play is a must and individual mastery of the heroes they chose is also important. Clint has been popular among the players as a marksman and several plays were displayed during the preliminaries. Which heroes they choose to play in the finals is also awaited - especially the live streaming of MSC games. The stakes are high and the players carry their flags to the finals. Who will make it to the grand finals and take home the $100 000 prize and glory?
