Who will represent MENA for the first time at the MSC 2023?

The Mobile Legends: Bang Bang (MLBB) Professional League (MPL) MENA Spring 2023 is entering its Playoffs stage. Taking place from May 11 to 13, four teams will compete for the title of champion, a slot in the MLBB SEA Cup, and the lion's share of a $107,500 prize pool.

The MPL MENA Spring 2023 Playoffs will take place as an offline event at the Pixoul Gaming in Abu-Dhabi, UAE. The event will be open to all for free, but you need to register for it. MOONTON has said that the attendees will get the chance to win limited-edition MLBB merchandise, Samsung Galaxy S23 smartphones, and other stuff in the LAN event.

Here’s everything you need to know about the MPL MENA Spring 2023 Playoffs.

MPL MENA: The story so far

The competition in the MPL MENA Spring 2023 is close and brutal. Team Occupy and AXE stand on top of the points table with a clear lead. Both teams are well-known in the MENA region. Team Occupy, which was initially formed late last year as the region’s representatives in the M4 World Championship, have completely revamped their roster for 2023.

The new team consists of veterans like Lio, Smile, and Kakashi, and Maro including newcomers such as Learning, Alphonse, and Speedy.

This might be the team’s first competition together, but their synergy has been spot on. They have topped the standings with a scoreline of 6-1.

Axe, on the other hand, had a great 2022 season. They won the MPL Spring 2022 and followed that up with a second-place finish in the fall season. They will now be looking to reclaim their title in the Playoffs.

The Bracket for the MPL MENA Spring 2023 is as follows:

  • Team Occupy vs WildAxe
  • Axe Mena vs Okami Esports

Teams will compete from May 11 to 13 for the title of champions. If you aren’t able to attend the event live in Abu Dhabi, you can tune into it on the Mobile Legends Arabia YouTube channel.

MSC slot up for grabs

While the MPL MENA continues to be the pinnacle for MLBB esports in the region, this season’s stakes are even higher. This is because MOONTON has expanded the MLBB SEA Cup (MSC) as a global tournament and will have one slot for MENA as well.

The winner of the spring season will represent MENA at the MSC 2023, which will take place in Cambodia from June 10 to 18.
