European esports powerhouse, Team Secret might just be stepping foot into Indonesia according to a recent Tweet. The tweet hints that Team Secret might be expanding its footprint in the SEA region, by making its way into the Indonesian esports scene.
Team Secret is Hinting an Expansion to Indonesia
Team Secret recently posted a Tweet showcasing the team’s mascot holding up an Indonesian flag. The Tweet’s caption simply reads: “ ”.
This is likely a teaser of the team’s expansion into the Indonesian esports scene.
Team Secret’s Previous Projects in SEA Esports
Although traditionally a Europe-centric organization, Team Secret has recently been focussing on expanding its footprint in the SEA esports scene. Currently, the team officially hosts three esports rosters in the SEA region.
- League of Legends (LoL) team in Vietnam
- PUBG Mobile team in Malaysia
- PUBG Mobile team in Thailand
The organization also recently confirmed that it was making its way into Filipino esports, by tweeting that they were “settling down in the Philippines.”
However, the organization is yet to announce which game title that it will be picking up in the Philippines.
Overview of the Indonesian Esports Scene
Indonesia has been one of the countries that are leading the way in legitimizing esports. The country recently recognized esports as a sports field, allowing video games to be contested in official competitions such as the National Games (PON).
Popular Esports titles in Indonesia
Currently, Mobile Esports titles dominate the viewership metrics in Indonesia. Both Mobile Legends Bang Bang (MLBB) and PUBG Mobile dwarf the Indonesian viewership for traditional PC titles like Dota 2.
League of Legends: Wild Rift has steadily become one of the most popular game titles in the country following the release of its open beta. With Riot Games’ track record in titles like League of Legends and VALORANT, Wild Rift is almost guaranteed to have a successful esports scene. So Team Secret might just be looking to get ahead of the curve and sign a Wild Rift roster.
Other titles like Arena of Valor and Free Fire also enjoy significant viewership in the Indonesian esports scene, making them one of the more viable candidates.
One thing is for certain, the Team Secret think tank will certainly have a lot of options if they step into Indonesian esports.
