This is the Substitute for the MSC 2020, the MPL Invitational 4 Nation Cup! Who are the Participants? Previously, as we know, the highest Mobile Legends tournament in Southeast Asia, namely MSC 2020, has been officially canceled. This cancellation was caused by the corona virus outbreak that has hit the entire world, especially in the Southeast Asia region, where the tournament was held.
Regarding this matter, Moonton had actually leaked to the media about the tournament that was the replacement for MSC 2020, and now the tournament has been officially announced through a press release we received. The tournament to replace the MSC 2020 was called the MPL Invitational 4 Nation Cup, which from the name alone we can tell that the tournament only invited 4 country representatives.
Where the four countries are Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and Myanmar. This tournament will also serve as a warm-up vessel before welcoming the MPL ID Season 6 in mid-2020.
