The top 20 teams from five countries will face off for the $100,000 USD prize pool
ONE Esports, a subsidiary of Group ONE Holdings (ONE), together with MOONTON Games, will host the Mobile Legends Professional League Invitational (MPLI) 2022 for the third year running. The online tournament will take place from 2 – 6 November 2022 and will be livestreamed on ONE Esports’ Facebook, TikTok, Twitch, Twitter, and YouTube platforms. The event will be streamed in Bahasa Indonesia, Bahasa Melayu, English, Tagalog, and Khmer.
The top Mobile Legends: Bang Bang teams from the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League (MPL) in Southeast Asia will participate in the highly anticipated event. A total of 20 teams will compete in a single elimination bracket for the $100,000 USD prize pool. The 20 teams competing in this year’s MPLI are:
|Cambodia||Burn x Flash|
|Indonesia||Alter Ego Esports|
This year’s MPLI features a unique Captain’s Draft format that will determine the first-round bracket. The four MPL Champions from Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, and Singapore will automatically qualify for the quarterfinals, be drafted into four groups, and will pick their opponents by drafting teams into their brackets. The draft order will be determined with a lottery-style draw. Once the order has been determined, the Captain’s Draft will proceed in a snake format (i.e. 1, 2, 3, 4, 4, 3, 2, 1) until all teams have been selected.
The Captain’s Draft will take place on 28 October at 7PM (GMT+8) and will be livestreamed in English on the ONE Esports’ Facebook, TikTok, Twitch, Twitter, and YouTube platforms. The draft will be hosted by popular Indonesian streamer, Aeterna, and MPL shoutcaster, Mirko, who clinched the title of Best Junior Caster during the MPL ID S7.
MPLI 2022 will begin on 2 November at 1PM (GMT+8) with the finals culminating on 6 November at 1PM (GMT+8).
