MobaZane Reveals Role Swaps for BTK and Scouting for New Mage Player
BloodThirstyKings’ (BTK) team captain Michael “MobaZane” Cosgun revealed that the team will be having role swaps in preparation for future Mobile Legends: Bang Bang (MLBB) tournaments. The North American (NA) squad will also be looking for a new Mage player to join them in their journey in securing a slot for the upcoming M4 World Championship. This decision was made after MobaZane revealed BTK’s chemistry (also known as Carti). According to the team captain, Victor has been struggling to adjust to the current MLBB meta and is currently underperforming in scrim sessions, forcing the team to consider role swaps and find a new player to fill the missing positions.
BTK to make roster changes soon
Victor’s subpar performance under the BTK squad has been one of the most discussed topics by fans. MobaZane has also brought up this topic multiple times on his livestreams, stating that the team may need to find a replacement for the EXP Laner soon.
In one of his recent livestreams, the BTK captain revealed that they shall be initiating role swaps. The team’s former Gold Laner Ian "FwydChickn" Hohl shall be the team’s EXP Laner. Zia shall shift from Mid Lane to the Gold Lane. Victor shall become a substitute player.
“That idiot [pointing at Zia] wants to go Gold Lane. That idiot [pointing at FwydChickn’s seat] is gonna go EXP [Lane] where he belongs,” stated MobaZane.
The BTK captain also revealed that since Zia is moving to Gold Lane, the team may need to find a new Mage player to fill the Mid Lane role. “What BTK might do is look for a new mage. So, [Fwd]Chickn EXP [Lane], Zia Gold [Lane],” said MobaZane.
He added that Zia is more than capable in his new role as “he’s been practicing Gold [Lane] ever since after M3 [World Championship] which is a pretty good, long time. I mean, it’s like 5-6 months.”
MobaZane hinted that the team will be looking for a new Mage in NA, as it would be more complicated to find a new player in other regions such as the Philippines. Victor will also temporarily serve as the team’s substitute player. “Carti might just be the sixth man, for now,” said the BTK captain.
Since the team’s arrival in the Philippines, BTK has seen improvements in their playstyle and team chemistry. However, with one of its members struggling to adjust to the meta, the NA squad may need to make adjustments and fix its chemistry issues before the upcoming M4 World Championship.
