The Mobile Legends: Bang Bang (MLBB) Professional League (MPL) Indonesia Season 11 has entered its Playoffs stage. After a long regular season, only six teams remain in the competition who will be fighting for the title and the lion’s share of the $300,000 prize pool.

The MPL Season 11 Indonesia Playoffs will take place from April 5 to 9. It will happen in front of a live audience at the JiExpo Kemaroyan Hall D2 in Jakarta. Tickets are currently on sale. There will also be a live stream on the MPL Indonesia YouTube channel.

That is not all, though, as the MPL Indonesia will also determine the two teams who will represent the country at the MLBB SEA Cup (MSC) 2023. It will happen in Cambodia in June. Here’s everything you need to know about the MPL ID Season 11.

The storyline so far

There have been 11 seasons of the MPL Indonesia since 2018, and seven of them have been won by either RRQ or Onic. More interestingly, both teams have finished in the top two over the past three seasons.

Coming into 2023, the fierce rivalry between both organizations doesn’t look to be dying down. The teams are boasting almost the same rosters that they played in last season, with just RRQ making one addition in the form of RENBO in the middle lane.

And just like last season, they are dominating – but one of them has a clear edge. Onic topped the Regular Season with 13 wins and just one loss. RRQ were in second place, but a bit behind in wins with just nine from 14 matches.

There is some reassurance for RRQ, though. Onic’s only lost came in the hands of RRQ in an intense series which ended with a score of 2-1.

MPL Indonesia Season 11 Playoffs Bracket

With Onic and RRQ coming in first and second respectively in the Regular Season, they have received a bye in the Playoffs. The bracket is as follows:

  • Match one: Bigetron vs Alter Ego
  • Match two: Geek Fam vs Evos Esports
  • Match three: RRQ vs winner of match one
  • Match four: Onic vs winner of match two

The bracket features a double-elimination format with every match, except for the Grand Final, being a best-of-five. The Grand Finals will be a best-of-seven series.

MLBB SEA Cup (MSC) 2023 slots are at stakes

Besides the bragging rights and prize pool, there are two slots to the MSC 2023 up for grabs. It will take place as an offline event from June 10 to 18.

This edition of the tournament will be the biggest to date as it's the first time global teams will participate. Earlier, the MSC was restricted to teams only from SEA. This time, however, other regions like MENA, North America, and Turkey have been added as a part of MOONTON’s global expansion plans.
