MPL Week 4 – New Meta Comp, TSYN and MyA Rivalry Sparks, and MyA3’s Major Comeback

The Shifting Meta

The regular season has seen the rise of new blood like Tyrants who have introduced their own brand of meta into the MPL. Having mages do the marksman’s role of taking down enemies while fighters push towers. We also had teams like Team Saiyan and IDNS SG who generally stick to ‘safer’ drafts while executing it with skill and finesse. They show that having a marksman still has its uses. It is no doubt that the we are seeing a crossroad between the old and new meta. This week we saw mixed results with both.

Speaking of results here are the results and current standings for week 4:

Why IDNS SG Dominates

IDNS SG is a team extremely difficult to deal with. Namely for their high-skill plays and absolute map control strategy. They started off every game so far by taking control of the objectives as soon as they can. That includes the enemy buffs as soon as it spawns. They also aggressively attack key heroes that can shut down their damage in this case Akai and Chou. This strategy that IDNS SG employs gives them a hefty early game lead that grows immensely in the late game.

No Marksman No Problem!

Once again we see Tyrants not pick up a marksman on this match against MCB. Interestingly MCB picked up Zhask to go against Tyrants, however Tyrants were the first to introduce him into the MPL and showed a successful performance at that. They were smart to bring team fights out of Zhask’s turret radius rendering him ineffective during the 2nd game. Tyrants may have revealed the counter to their own secret weapon to the other teams.

Xian once again shows he is an unstoppable force as Balmond. Diving MCB and holding them back as his team secures towers he is definitely one of the better Balmond players in the MPL – although he has only picked the hero once.

Louvre SG Rising

Louvre SG has seen many defeats for a team of their calibre. But they were able to turn their losses around by keeping their focus and composure. They showed great promise during their match against Falcon7. They had great coordination and every member was in sync with plays that the team was going to make during both games. With this they bagged both games leaving Falcon7 still with no points earned.

The Rivalry Continues!

The Rivalry of Team Saiyan and MyA is known throughout the Mobile Legends community with MyA still playing 2nd fiddle to Team Saiyan. This time both teams were evenly matched. Team Saiyan dominated the first game with the same aggressive strategy they are known for. On the other hand MyA learned to play against this during the 2nd game by drafting a highly mobile line up weaving around Team Saiyan’s two marksman formation and striking when they’ve burned out their skills. The rivalry continues as we move on to the coming weeks of the regular season.

Comeback Gaming!

TXD dominated the early to mid game phase of the first game, pulling successful ganks and even secured objectives like Lord yet MyA3 still won? It was a game changing mistake by TXD to leave Lord alone to push. MyA3 was able to stop Lord from pushing towers and push back TXD. MyA3 continued what they started into game 2.

MyA3 has given us one of the cleanest ganks we’ve seen on the MPL Regular Season.

Given the exciting matches we’ve seen in the past weeks there are surely more to come during the upcoming weeks of the regular season. You can watch the English cast of the matches live on the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang and eGG Network Facebook pages.
