The Mobile Legends Bang Bang M3 World Championship kicks off today, with 16 of the world’s best teams facing off for the title of world champion and the US$800,000 prize pool.

With the world’s best players under one roof, RED Canids Kalunga captain Victor “Lunna” Monteiro found the opportunity to meet one of his MLBB idols.

The Brazillian player snapped a few pictures with Blacklist International‘s dynamic duo, Danerie James “Wise” Del Rosario and Johnmar “OhMyV33nus” Villaluna. The post’s caption mentioned that meeting them was one of his main goals at M3.

Lunna explained how Blacklist International was a big influence on RED Canids Kalunga’s success in MPL Brazil Season 1.

“In my opinion, Blacklist International is the best team in the world right now. Their strategy and style of play is hard to beat, and no team has been able to match them so far,” said Lunna.

Utilizing Blacklist’s UBE strategy of teammates playing as a close unit, RED Canids Kalunga caught their region by surprise and were crowned the first champions of MPL BR.

As a fellow captain and a support player, Lunna had nothing but praise for OhMyV33nus.

“My main idol in Mobile Legends is OhMyV33nus, both in and out of the game. V33nus really inspired me in many ways, and it made me happy that we’re facing each other in the first match of M3,” stated the player.

Lunna is looking forward to meeting other big names at M3 such as RRQ Hoshi captain Calvin “Vynnn”. Since Vynnn plays support in the top region of Indonesia, Lunna sees a lot of value in analyzing his MPL ID gameplay.

“I also really like Vynnn from RRQ Hoshi. I watch his games a lot and try to understand why he is so different and what I can learn from him,” said the RED Canids Kalunga captain.

Competing alongside elite players like V33nus and Vynnn at M3, Lunna is setting out to share experiences and discuss the game with other MLBB pros.
