About Mobile Legend: Bang Bang
Mobile Legends: Bang Bang is a multiplayer online battle arena game designed for mobile phones. Two opposing teams fight to reach and destroy the enemy’s base while defending their own. Each team consists of five players who each control an avatar, known as a “hero”, from their own device. Mobile Legends is rapidly gaining traction in Southeast Asia and is one of the top mobile games in the region with millions of downloads.
Season 3 features eight top-tier teams from Southeast Asia, including teams ICON and Mysterious Assassin from Malaysia, teams Aerowolf Roxy, ONIC Esports and REVO from Indonesia, teams Bigetron Esports and Resurgence from Singapore and Burmese Ghouls from Myanmar.
Group stages begin on February 18, 2019, with matches streamed live every Monday to Wednesday until March 20. Match highlights will be available every Tuesday to Thursday, from February 19, with a weekly round-up each Thursday.
