The Future of Team SMG Appears Bleak as the Organization Suddenly Quits the MPL

Share This Post

In a move that has caught many by surprise, Team SMG has announced yet another disbandment hot on the heels of its Valorant squad dissolution. This time, the organization has chosen to step away from MLBB competition, effectively disbanding its MLBB division established in 2020.

In an official statement, Team SMG revealed that all MLBB players have been released to join a new team set to make its debut in the upcoming MPL Malaysia. The organization expressed gratitude for the dedication and achievements of its MLBB team over the past three years.

“It’s with mixed emotions that we announce our MLBB team has been acquired by a new organisation. While this marks the end of our chapter as we know it, it opens exciting new doors for our player. We want to express our deepest gratitude to our incredible fans. To our amazing sponsors and partners.” SMG wrote on social media. “And lastly, to our talented players and staff, we salute you.”

Throughout the course of three years, SMG has solidified its standing as a dominant force within the MPL MY competition. Despite grappling with intermittent bouts of inconsistency, notably in pivotal matchups, the team’s resilience has shone through. Their triumphs include a championship victory in MPL MY S8 (2021), as well as securing runner-up accolades in S11 and S12, in addition to clinching the M5 Wild Card in November 2023.

The recent disbandment of both the Valorant and MLBB squads has fueled speculation regarding SMG’s future in the gaming community. Notably, the organization has remained mum on any developments regarding its Dota 2 squad since the culmination of The International 12 last year. With their roster now conspicuously empty, players and coaches have promptly aligned themselves with other teams. Consequently, the looming prospect of SMG bidding adieu to the esports scene entirely grows more apparent.
