In November 2019, 16 teams of MOBA players across the globe met in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The teams were there for more than just the $250,000 prize pool but to represent the flags of their countries. Unbeknownst to the eSports community, those teams would pave the way to establish what would soon become the most anticipated event in eSports- The Mobile Legends World Championship.
Interestingly enough, the M2 World Championship with its $300,000 prize pool remained strong and saw its most extensive viewership to date. With the recent announcement of the $800,000 M3 World Championship, fans of the upcoming event are hyped, especially with the league’s recent expansion. Nevertheless, let’s take a while to get to know five of the best in the league as of 2021.
