Mobile Legends: Bang Bang fans have something to be excited about in the coming months as Moonton has announced that the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Southeast Asia Cup (MSC) is coming back this year.

Twelve Southeast Asian teams from Singapore, Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos will once again battle on the big stage to determine who truly has the best MLBB team in the region.

The tournament, which boasts a US$150,000 prize pool, will be played online due to COVID-19 restrictions and player safety.

The tournament will run from June 7 to 13. The first two group stages will be held from June 7-9. After a two-day break, playoffs will begin on June 11-13.

Other details such as participating teams and bracket format have not yet been announced. However, Moonton has already released a website for future updates.

Aside from an in-game event that will coincide with the tournament, Moonton has also teased a new time-limited skin that will only be available from May 29 to June 13.

The announcement was a surprise to many as last year’s MSC was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic and was replaced with Mobile Legends Pro League Invitational 4 Nation Cup with only Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, and Myanmar competing.
