Safety For M2 Is Getting Ramped Up
This year there will be multiple teams flying in to take part in Mobile Legends: Bang Bang M2 World Championship in Singapore. This is one of the few tournaments which is opting to fly in their teams after the lockdowns declared across the world this year. Moonton has announced that the teams from Japan, Brazil, Russia, and other regions around the world will be flown in early for the competition taking place between 18th and 24th January. To ensure player safety, the publisher announced that M2 would be an in-person competition but would not have a live audience as a safety measure.
Teams attending the event in person will have to “abide by the requirements on COVID-19 prevention and control and prevailing public health regulations,” Moonton said in its announcement, meaning that players will have to spend a lot of time under quarantine.
