1-3 September 2017, IDONOTSLEEP from Thailand won the throne as the best Mobile Legends team in Southeast Asia when they won MSC 2017. At that time, their tough competition with Salty Salad from the Philippines it bears sweet fruit.
The reason is, initially IDONOTSLEEP had to move to the Lower Bracket because they lost to the Philippine team. However, because of his persistence, they returned to the Grand Final after defeating Sold Gaming Alpha in the Lower Bracket Final.
IDONOTSLEEP also managed to get revenge and overthrew Salty Salad in the last party. The first winner also managed to pocket a prize equal to USD 50K. Meanwhile, the Runner Up must be satisfied with the prize which is ‘only’ equal to USD 25K.
Almost one year has passed, so much has changed from Mobile Legends in terms of META games or the world of martial arts players and professional teams. Indonesia is arguably one of the countries with a more rapid and active competitive arena in the past year compared to the 2 countries that were finalists in MSC 2017.
Thanks to the active competition and the large number of players in Indonesia, Moonton has again decided to hold MSC 2018 again in Indonesia.
If at MSC 2017 there were only 5 countries that competed, this time MSC 2018 will invite representatives from 7 countries in Southeast Asia, namely Indonesia, the Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam.
Slightly different from the MSC 2017 title which uses a qualification system, MSC 2018 will have a slightly different system. Countries that have implemented MPL, such as Indonesia, Malaysia, and the Philippines will give invitations to the MPL champions.
As for other countries, Vietnam, Myanmar and Thailand, there will be qualifications to compete for 1 slot for each country.
For more information about MSC 2018, we will provide more information after its press conference which will be held tomorrow (3 July 2018).
However, the biggest question is, with the active competitive arena and the larger number of players, how will the Indonesian teams perform at MSC 2018? Can we be champions in this event later? Or even new MSC participating countries, such as Vietnam or Myanmar, will be the champions?
