After a season of youthful junglers dominating the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League Indonesia scene, Bigetron Alpha jumps in on the trend with a surprise acquisition of Genflix Aerowolf’s Agung “Bottle” Dita.
BTR Bottle will now be the organization’s jungler, taking the place of Jabran “Branz” Bagus Wiloko will now move to the sidelane. He completes the star-studded roster for the upcoming Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League Indonesia Season 8 (MPL ID S8).
BTR Bottle’s unique reveal before the start of MPL ID S8
On Bigetron Alpha’s Instagram account, the ex-Genflix Aerowolf player was introduced in a creative way, like an energy drink — dubbed as a player with new energy, new flavor, and new power.
In an interview with ONE Esports, Bigetron Alpha head coach Steven Age has revealed the reason why they pushed for the BTR Bottle trade before MPL ID S8.
“We recruited him because we think he is funny in a nice way. He is also very honed and talented in-game,” Steven said.
The young jungler trend
BTR Bottle is part of the latest trend of young junglers dominating the Indonesian scene.
Junglers such as EVOS Legends’ Ferxiic, RRQ Hoshi’s Alberttt, and ONIC Esports’ Sanz all performed outstandingly in their debut seasons.
This is especially true with Alberttt and Ferxiic, who won the MPL ID trophy in seasons six and seven respectively.
