Last year, MSC 2022 was held in Malaysia with a live audience and a US$300,000 prize pool. MPL PH Season 9 champion RSG PH went on to win the tournament after they swept Indonesia’s RRQ Hoshi, 4-0, in the grand final.

The tournament was postponed in 2020 due to the COVID-19 outbreak. The tournament returned the year after with MSC 2021, which was held online for the first time in MSC history.

Indonesia hosted the first two MSC tournaments in 2017 and 2018, while MSC 2019 took place in the Philippines.
