Branz, a core member of Bigetron Alpha, was suspended for serious community violations in one of his streams. According to an official statement from Bigetron Alpha, Jabran “Branz” Bagus Wiloko has been suspended for a month and will not be participating in the upcoming Mobile Legends Southeast Asia Cup (MSC 2021). Edwin “Starlest” Chia, CEO of Bigetron Alpha stated in an interview with Planet Esports that Branz has accepted the consequences and apologized for his carelessness. Bigetron Alpha clarified that it is still unclear whether the player will return to his team after his suspension.
After one of Branz's live streams on NimoTV, he failed to turn off his mic, which ended up picking up inappropriate noises [Warning: NSFW] in the background even though his camera was disabled. As a result, Branz was subjected to disciplinary action which saw him get suspended from Bigetron Alpha for a month, barring him from competing at the upcoming MSC 2021.
“We, the management of Bigetron Esports, apologize for the commotion that occurred. We hereby declare that Branz will receive a strong warning from us, and as a sanction, he and related parties have been suspended for a month,” read the organization statement on its Instagram handle.
Branz was one of the core members of Bigetron Alpha that led them to the grand finals of the recently concluded MPL ID Season 7. Despite them losing to EVOS Legends, Branz proved to be one of the best players in the team and arguably one of the best jungle players in the Indonesia Mobile Legends esports scene.
Edwin “Starlest” Chia, Founder and CEO of Bigetron Alpha, said in a Planet Esports interview that Branz apologized to him and the management about the issue.
The MPL ID Season 7 champions EVOS Legends and Bigetron Alpha will represent Indonesia at MSC 2021. Bigetron Alpha will likely have to find a replacement for Branz for the upcoming tournament.
