Todak, the high flyers of Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Pro League-Malaysia/Singapore Season 6 (MPL-MY/SG S6) regular season, have had an almost perfect run so far – undefeated in 9 matches, with a score of 18-7. A stark contrast to their performance at their last major tournament, the MPLI 4 Nation Cup. What changed? What happened to the team in between that short span of time? We caught up with Ashi, manager of the team, to pick his brain about the team.
The team has had an outstanding group stage so far – how does it feel to make it to the upper bracket undefeated?
Alhamdulillah, the success of Todak to get victories without losing is a very proud thing. However, this success does not mean anything in the playoffs later and Todak will always train to further strengthen their grasp on the game.
Was this result expected?
Not at all. Honestly, we see MPL Season 6 as the toughest MPL for Todak, due to the other participating teams. Everyone is very strong, just that we are better prepared this season.
The last major tournament (MPLI), Todak didn’t do too well – was it because of the roster changes? If not, what’s the major difference between then and now?
I feel the failure of Todak during the MPLI was due to the lack of time for new players to build chemistry with old players.
Who was your toughest opponent so far, and why?
From my point of view, it is Resurgence because they are very creative in drafting for this latest patch.
Which teams do you think are the strongest this season?
Is there a big difference between the Malaysian and Singaporean teams? In terms of strategy and playstyles?
The difference isn’t that big but each of us have our own ideas for how the game should be played.
Todak look like the heavy favourites to win MPL-MY/SG S6 – how is the team coping with the pressure? Does it add unnecessary stress, or does it give you guys motivation to do better?
If it is true that Todak is seen as the team that will win MPL Season 6, I would like to say thank you for the trust and hope we’ve been given. It will definitely add a little pressure, but I am confident that the Todak players will be more eager to win.
Lastly, any words for your fans?
Thank you, we send our greetings and love to our parents, and also ask them to pray for the success of Todak <3
