Fans of Mobile Legends: Bang Bang are probably already aware of the AESF or Asian Electronic Sports Federation’s ongoing charity event #YourHomeYourArena.

They are Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia.
Mobile Legends Bang Bang Tournament
If you’re not familiar with mobile esports games, Mobile Legends: Bang Bang is a popular 5v5 MOBA game. It lets players pick a team of heroes and set up a match in just a few seconds. Out since 2017, the title has amassed a steady following, especially in Asia where the tournament is taking place. So far, over 100 million players have downloaded the game – and the numbers are rising. No doubt Mobile Legends: Bang Bang is headed to being one of the premier mobile esport games out there!
Eight countries took part in the charity event. The four teams we mentioned and the start together with Laos, Cambodia, the Philippines and Brunei. The teams played a single-elimination knock-out stage in which all four now semifinalists won in dominating fashion with 2-0 scorelines. Now, the remaining four will have the chance to win big this upcoming weekend. On the 11th of June, both the semi-finals and finals will be taking place in quick succession.
Out of the four semi-finalists Thailand and Malaysia have shown the most cohesive play and are likely the favorites in the semifinals. It’s worth mentioning that spectators have a shot at earning free Mobile Legends skins as part of the #YOURHOMEYOURARENA Skin Giveaway.
The semifinals are set for June 11th at 2PM (GMT+8), with Thailand versus Singapore in Match 1 and Malaysia versus Indonesia in Match 2.
The idea behind the #YourHomeYourArena initiattive and the Mobile Legends tournament is raising charity and relief funds for Covid-19. The goal is to encourage the public to donate, even small amounts, in order to help the affected communities. Every donation would help deal with the issues the pandemic is causing. It’s not the first time that an esports organisation is working to support local groups and relief efforts to help recover particularly affected areas. Even the participants are pitching in – given that it’s a remote event, the local participants are organizing promotions, networking activities and more in advance of the whole thing.
Additionally, everyone involved is quite pleased by how well received the event is – including AESF member Eddy Lim, the president of the Indonesian Esports Association:
“Unity through solidarity, is the message we should all embrace within Esports community during this Covid-19 pandemic. IESPA is glad to join this campaign.”
In the end, we welcome everyone to support the event and the charity event as you enjoy some exhilarating Mobile Legends games.
