The Valley's Mid Laner, Hoon, shared his first-week experience playing on the Indonesian MLBB server.
According to Hoon, the server is less toxic compared to North America.
Hoon explained that there was less toxicity and trashtalking on the Indonesian server despite some players underperforming in matches.

The Valley’s mid laner, Jang "Hoon" Seong-hun shared his experience playing on the Indonesian server of Mobile Legends: Bang Bang (MLBB). In preparation for the upcoming M4 World Championship, the pro player has been playing ranked matches in Indonesia along with his squad. According to Hoon, the playerbase was not as toxic as he had expected it to be. While he admits there are players who are less skilled at the game, most players were always taking matches seriously and no one showed signs of toxicity or trolling. Hoon went on to say that he enjoys playing on the Indonesian MLBB server as his teammates often listen and coordinate with him.

Hoon shares his first-hand experience playing on the Indonesian MLBB server

Most of The Valley’s members have experience playing on multiple servers. Players like Ian "FwydChickn" Hohl and Michael "MobaZane" Cosgun  travelled to both the Philippines (PH) and Indonesia (ID) as part of their training back when they were still under BloodThirstyKings (BTK). 

Peter "Basic" Lozano also played in the Mobile Legends Professional League (MPL) PH, making him one of The Valley’s experienced players who competed in an official MLBB pro league.

The squad’s Korean player, Hoon, has plenty of experience in other mobile esports titles. However, he didn’t get the chance to play on the Indonesian server of MLBB until he joined The Valley which secured a spot in the M4 World Championship.

Through a live stream, Hoon shared his experience playing on one of the strongest and most competitive servers in the game.

“For a week guys, I haven’t seen a single troller. Like, a person that actually INTS [Intensional Feeding], like, pick random heroes and troll, take your buff, and run it down,” said The Valley’s Mid Laner.

He did admit that there are players who showed a lackluster performance, but players were far friendlier and less toxic than he anticipated.

“They could be a little underperforming but there are no toxic people,” explained Hoon.

He also mentioned that people often tell him that the Asia server is filled with toxic people. However, it somehow wasn’t the case for him when he played on the Indonesian MLBB server.

“I’ve never seen a single troller, there wasn’t a single trashtalker,” said Hoon.

Due to his positive first impression, Hoon expressed his enjoyment in playing on the server.

“I love it here [Indonesia], screw NA [North America server],” stated Hoon.

The Valley is set to compete in the M4 World Championship which is set to kickoff on 1st January 2023. The squad shall face Argentina’s S11 Gaming on the second day of the group stage at 3:05 PM (Western Indonesia Time).
