Moonton Games shakes up the eSports scene as it rebrands its Mobile Legends Bang Bang Southeast Asia Cup (MSC) to the MLBB Mid Season Cup.

This move aligns with the company’s initiative, “Esports for Everyone,” expanding the tournament to include teams from North America, MENA, and Turkey. The 2023 MSC marks the beginning of this inclusive approach, breaking away from its previous focus solely on Southeast Asian regions.

Notably, the Mid Season Cup will run concurrently with the MLBB Women’s Invitational (MWI) during the Esports World Cup, adding an extra layer of excitement.
