The world of esports gaming moves at breakneck speed, so it’s easy to miss the weekly happenings. Here’s a quick recap of what happened in the past week:
1) MPL Season 2 (Mobile Legends: Bang Bang) 19-21 October
Malaysia’s Saiyan Reborn took out its sister team AirAsia Saiyan (2-0) on their path to the Grand Final, where they eventually bested EVOS Esports (3-2). From bottom of the pack in the regular season to champions, Saiyan Reborn took home USD31,000 (RM128,900) while one of their players, Saw Kee Loong, netted an additional USD1,000 (RM4,161) for winning the “MVP of the tournament” award.
“We never thought that we will win MPL Season 2. We had to go through so many obstacles including the battle between AirAsia Saiyan that is far more experienced than we are. We didn’t expect to beat them with 2-0 score. Overall, we’re overjoyed by our achievement,” said the team captain Akmal Afi Uzair Daud (Silo).
