Team Steps Toward MPL Season 2
Bigetron Esports, which at that time was named Bigetron Player Kill in MPL Season 1, managed to prove to be a team that cannot be underestimated. At that time they won fourth place in the event.

Then there is Eiduart, the Bigetron PK captain who moved to ONIC Esports, a new team in the Indonesian esports scene. Last there Rekt which eventually moved to the Louvre.
The remaining two players are Fabiens and Vin who finally decided to stay and look for new players to fill the void in the team.
Finally the three players are Rage, Yam, and JeeL who had previously joined IDNS.
Substitution of players certainly had consequences with their journey starting from open qualifier MPL Season 2. Experience and big names from Bigetron successfully got them through open qualifier second.
At that time, Bigetron Esports was still very strong, successfully winning the first place in the playoff final in Group A with a record of winning all the victories. These results led them to qualify for the MPL Season 2 group stage.
Even though they managed to win from Team Capcorn in the first week, a series of defeats began to occur afterwards.

Fabiens, who is also a senior player by participating in various prestigious tournaments such as MSC 2017 and MPL Season 1, admitted that he was bored playing Mobile Legends.

JeeL, who used to be at IDNS, also admitted that there were more MPLs in Indonesia hype than on the team he defended before. “If here, apart from great prestige, it is also more struggling to qualify for the playoffs,” he said.
