“MPL and Moonton are proud to develop together with every Indonesia esports entity in forming a more mature ecosystem from year to year,” said Lucas Mao, MPL Indonesia League Commissioner. Lucas went on to explain the importance of listening to their stakeholders to create the best experience possible for fans and participants alike.
