Bigetron Esports has been on the lookout for the next Mobile Legends: Bang Bang prodigy, and they may have very well found the perfect candidate.

During a recent meet and greet event, Bigetron stunned fans when they introduced Arif to thousands of fans in attendance, the organization’s newest MLBB player.

What makes this even more surprising is Arif is just 11 years old, making him one of the youngest players ever to sign to a professional MLBB team in Indonesia.

In an exclusive interview with Bigetron CEO Edwin “Starlest” Chia, he expressed his admiration for the young player’s remarkable performance when he discovered him on stream, which led him to sign the young star.

“I have hope that within the next 5 years, Arif will be able to compete in MPL ID,” he stated.

However, due to the age restrictions outlined in the MPL and MDL rulebook, Arif will be designated as the team’s MLBB trainee until he reaches the minimum age of 16.

Starlest emphasized that his education will remain a top priority, and he will only participate in MLBB team activities during school breaks to gain a deeper understanding of the professional scene.

“This approach ensures that when he reaches the appropriate age, he will be thoroughly prepared to tackle the challenges of competitive play,” Starlest added.

There’s a reason why Bigetron is so keen on signing this young player as early as now.

He has gained recognition for his exceptional skills with Lancelot, one of the most mechanically challenging heroes in the game.

His highest attained hero rank on the hero is top 98 on the global leaderboard, a difficult feat to achieve considering that Indonesia has the highest MLBB player base of any country.

He has also amassed over 35,000 followers on TikTok, where he frequently streams his gameplay.
