Clinching the gold medal for the third time

Highest peak-concurrent viewership ever for a female esports tournament

In the Female Category, Indonesia dismantled the Philippines with a score of 3:2 in a best-of-five (Bo5) match series held last 11 May 2023.

Team Indonesia was represented by Vivi Indrawaty, Viorelle Valencia Chen, Cindy Laurent Siswanto, Isnaini Nurfajrih Machdita, Venny Lim, and Michelle Denise Siswanto. They were headed by coach Tasia Eda Lestari. The peak concurrent viewership for the female tournament recorded a new high of 1,367,274, making it the most-watched female esports tournament ever, according to Esports Charts.

Team Philippines notched a silver podium finish, while Teams Malaysia and Vietnam settled for 3rd and 4th spots and received bronze medals.

This is the first time the Southeast Asian multi-sport event featured a standalone MLBB tournament for women. A total of six (6) teams joined, including Laos and the host country Cambodia. Mobile Legends: Bang Bang esports fans can still look forward to exciting battles in June, as the upcoming MSC 2023 will, too, be hosted in Cambodia for the very first time. The international event will feature global teams hailing from North America, Turkey, and the Middle East.
