Mobile Legends: Bang Bang developer MOONTON announced the teams that will be flying in to take part in Mobile Legends: Bang Bang M2 World Championship Singapore. MOONTON announced Sunday evening that teams from Japan, Brazil, Russia, and other regions around the world will be flown in early for the competition taking place Jan. 18 – 24. Earlier this month, MOONTON announced that M2 would be an in-person competition but would not have a live audience as a safety measure.
Teams attending the event include DREAMMAX (Brazil), IMPUNITY KH (Cambodia), RRQ and ALTER EGO ESPORTS (Indonesia), 10S GAMING FROST (Japan), TODAK (Malaysia), BURMESE GHOULS (Myanmar), BREN ESPORTS and OMEGA ESPORTS (Philippines), UNIQUE DEVU (Russia), and RSG EVOS SG (Singapore).
Teams attending the event in person will have to “abide by the requirements on COVID-19 prevention and control and prevailing public health regulations,” MOONTON said in its announcement, meaning that there will be a substantial period spent under quarantine.
“MOONTON has worked with various industry experts to design operational plans that adheres to the Safe Management Measures (SMM) required by the local authorities,” the company said in its announcement. “A safety protocol handbook will also be distributed digitally pre-arrival and in hard copy on arrival to all participants, detailing what needs to be done from leaving their countries, arriving in Singapore, and eventually landing back home.”
In addition to playing for a total prize pool of $300K USD, the winning team will also receive its very own skin with its branding on an in-game hero of its choice. Tournament brackets will be selected on Dec. 12.
