As a result of the agreement, Mobile Legends: Bang Bang will be present at this year’s Esports World Cup in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

Regarding the possible negative reaction, from the community, that Mobile Legends’ decision to participate in the Esports World Cup could cause, Ray NG made a number of statements.

In general, as we have been with the MPL MENA for five years now, we do not see any negative reaction from our community. Also, the fact that top teams from the Middle East and North Africa represent the region in our international event has not provoked any negative comments or feelings. One interesting thing is that Saudi Arabia and the entire MENA region are Muslim cultures. And if you look at Southeast Asia, Indonesia and Malaysia, they also tend to belong to that Muslim culture, which naturally fits very well. The purpose is to bring everyone together, in line with our vision, which is, esports for everyone, regardless of race, diversity or background. We have a lot of players from all over the world

On the other hand, Ray pointed out that the talks between Esports World Cup and Mobile Legends began early last year. Among other things, they traveled to the country to present MLBB as a product to the Saudi Esports Federation, in addition to highlighting the title’s globalization ambitions and its initiatives in the MENA region. In recent years, Moonton has focused on the MENA region with MPL MENA, in addition to other initiatives to develop the region’s ecosystem as a whole.
