The Land of Dawn’s Timekeeper will be absent for the whole Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League Season 11 playoffs (MPL PH Season 11).

Moonton PR manager Keith Medrano told media that support hero Diggie is banned for the entire duration of the playoffs.

Medrano confirmed the news after the Blacklist International and Smart Omega series, during which the former emerged victorious with a dominant 3-0 score in the play-ins stage.

“We’ve observed a bug related to Diggie’s lock settings and egg mechanic. With this, Diggie will be banned from tournament use for one week starting today,” Medrano said.

He also explained that all the teams were informed beforehand.

In the regular season, the Timekeeper was played 17 times, of which 10 resulted in victory.
