Former Singaporean Dota 2 caster, Sean ‘Hades’ Goh has made the switch to Mobile Legends, where he will now be coaching Indonesian side, Aura Esports. He joins MLBB after a rich history in Dota 2 where he worked as a caster, analyst, manager and coach. Most recently he was managing the T1 Dota 2 roster. He has also worked with XcN and Alter Ego. Hades is a well known figure in the Southeast Asian Dota community but will be switching to MLBB. He also spoke of his background in psychology being something that could potentially help the team.
Aura Esports are one of the top teams in the Indonesian Mobile Legends circuit. However they are looking to bounce back from a rough season where the team finished in the 7th position in the league stage and were unable to make it to the playoffs. With the Mobile Legends Professional League Season 6 on the horizon, the team has brought in Hades to help turn the fortunes.
The trend of players switching from titles such as Dota 2 to Mobile Legends isn't surprising as the popularity of mobile titles has surpassed those of PC ones in the region. With dedicated regional ecosystems and publisher support, titles like Arena of Valor and Mobile Legends are now the go to MOBAs in SEA. The upcoming release of League of Legends: Wild Rift is also a possible contender.
