Rex Regum Qeon (RRQ) and MPL ID
Formed in August 2017, RRQ O2 consisted of some of the top players in the MLBB Indonesia scene. Now RRQ O2 has changed its name to RRQ Hoshi. The team has been wildly successful, winning the MPL Invitational - 4 Nation Cup event in July and also the last season of MPL ID. The team also bagged 2nd place in the M1 World Championship 2019 and MPL ID Season 4.
With MPL Indonesia Season 6 and MDL Season 2 having kicked off, hopes from RRQ are high. Both their squads are doing well. RRQ Sena won their matches against Siren Esports, Victim and EVOS while RRQ Hoshi claimed victory against GEEK FAM and EVOS. Week 2 of the Regular Season will begin with RRQ Hoshi going against Bigetron Alpha tomorrow on 22nd August. The team’s next match is against Onic on 23rd August. RRQ Sena will face Alter Ego X on the 31st of August. If RRQ Hoshi is successful in continuing their victory streak, they could walk away as champions with $25,000.
To ensure the safety and health of the teams, staff, partners, and fans amidst the ongoing global pandemic, the entirety of the MPL-ID Season 6 will be played online. All matches will be streamed live via official social media channels (Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Facebook, Mobile Legends Esports Facebook, Mobile Legends: Bang Bang YouTube).
