- February 26th – March 3rd 2024

In a rare occurrence, a colossal prize pool is set to stir the gaming realms of Europe as an MLBB tournament takes center stage. Not surprisingly, the event is igniting fervor among pundits and the global gaming community alike, with a higher prize pool than the M-series adding fuel to the anticipation. Sixteen elite teams will clash in fierce competition, promising a spectacle of skill and strategy.
While the full details remain shrouded in mystery, insights from Onic Esports’ assistant coach Adi “Adi” Asyauri hint at a tournament resembling the recent M5 2023, as familiar faces are flocking in to seize the glory in Russia.

MPL ID and MPL PH Season 13 and 14
- March to May 2024 (ID Season 13 and PH Season 13)
- August to October 2024 (ID Season 14 and PH Season 14)
The titans of the global competitive scene, MPL Indonesia and Philippines, are primed for another season of adrenaline-pumping action. A new year ushers in a heightened level of competition, increased stakes, and the promise of drama. Furthermore, the introduction of the 10-hero ban is expected to push top teams from both regions to craft innovative and bold strategies.
Beyond their eternal rivalry, these regions are renowned for passionate fan bases, aggressive playstyles, and unpredictable outcomes. This time, however, the gaming community believes Indonesia will steal the spotlight, fueled by major teams doubling down on Filipino imports to dethrone the three-peat king, Onic Esports, whose dominance is credited to the strategic prowess of head coach Paul “Yeb” Denver and the nimble prowess of Kairi “Kairi” Rayosdelsol.
