The Mobile Legends: Bang Bang (MLBB) M4 World Championship has had a big change ahead of the expected event in Jakarta, Indonesia.
The previous year, Moonton planned to take the M4 World Championship to Jakarta’s legendary MPL Arena. In a league game, Indonesia is far from the top of the list, and a type of homecoming means it’s the most popular area. But yesterday, a tweet from MLBB revealed that the venue was changing.

The MPL Arena caught fire for the World Press Conference on November 7th.
According to a report published by Liga Game, the MPL Arena, called the Xo Hall, caught fire this week before the press conference and group match. The incident happened on the afternoon of Dec. 12 a.m.
According to the report, one of the people who walked near the venue saw a spark in the hall that turned into a small explosion. The fire sunk. Fortunately, nobody was hurt, and everyone in the area was out safely.
It’s said that the cause of the fire is an electrical short circuit. Moonton announced that the upcoming event, due to the unfortunate circumstances of the event, will change the venue for the M4 World Championship.
New sites for the league’s 2014 MLB championship.
The group stage of the M4 World Championship will now take place at Bali United from the one-to-one studio from Jan 1 through 14 Jan. The Knockout stage will be held the tennis indoor stadium Senayan from Jan 7 till 15.
This is done to ensure we can provide a safe and pleasant experience for our teams, fans, and gaming communities, said Moonton in its statement.
Fans will gladly know the tournament is still happening in Jakarta. There’s a tragic problem. Due to the change of venue, the seating capacity on Knockout will be lower than that previously. Consequently, Mootnon will refund some tickets as they adjust to the increased capacity. Those fans who have refunded their tickets will also receive 250 Golden Globes.
The M4 team wants your kind of consideration and understanding of this problem, Moonton.
Besides World Champions, there are 80,000 dollars in prize pool on line. After the tough 2022 season, the Defending World Championships Blacklist International are looking to comeback. At the event, representatives of Onic Esports and RRQ Hoshi will be competing to win the tournament for the trophy.
