Luiizz, Kiing, Tekashi, and Blink were former members of Keyd Stars who participated in last year’s M3 World Championship. The team finished 8th place in the lower bracket playoffs after losing against the Filipino team, Blacklist International.
After its esports journey in the M3 World Championship, Keyd Stars disbanded its MLBB roster and released its pro players.
