MobaZane Feels NA High Rank MLBB Players Are Too Casual
It’s been a week since BloodThirstyKings’ (BTK) team captain Michael “MobaZane” Cosgun returned to North America (NA) after his month-long stay in the Philippines. The pro player expressed that he misses the region, especially its competitive Mobile Legends: Bang Bang (MLBB) players. He expressed his disappointment that the MLBB players in NA, even in high tier ranks played casually unlike in the Philippines where everyone takes the mobile MOBA title seriously. Due to this, MobaZane gets more excited for his along with his whole BTK squad, and this may be happening in late May as revealed in his previous streams.
MobaZane complains how NA players are too casual in MLBB
Through a livestream, MobaZane shared his travel plans for this year. Expressing how he missed traveling, he said “I want to be in Asia a lot this year, I’m gonna go back another month for the Philippines, I’m gonna go a month for Indonesia, and then a month for M4 [World Championship].”
However, he seemed unsatisfied with his travel plans as he wanted to travel more to Asian countries. Mobazane added that he want to “be there for like six months this year. I can’t stay in NA, man.”
He also shared one of the reasons why he enjoyed his stay in the Philippines. According to him, MLBB players in the region “take it so seriously, and that’s what I love, that’s what I want, you know.”
He explained that playing ranked matches on the NA server “feels like playing classic [game mode] unless you’re playing against the best people in NA.”
He went on to compare the Philippines MLBB region to that of his main server, stating that players in NA play too casually for him. “I can accept it… that’s what people [in NA MLBB server] want to do. But I don’t want to be around it,” MobaZane said.
MobaZane’s trip to the Philippines has definitely changed his perception of how to play MLBB competitively. It will be interesting to see how the whole BTK squad adjusts to the MLBB meta on the Philippines server when they arrive in the region soon.
