KUALA LUMPUR, 22 April Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League (MPL) Malaysia achieved another historic milestone in Week 3 of the Season 13 Regular Season. A total of 3,932 fans turned up from 19 to 21 April at the MPL MY Arena at MBSJ Stadium in Serdang Jaya to cheer on their teams. This exceeds the previous Regular Season high of 3,500 fans set in the opening week of the season.

 

Week 3 saw Selangor Red Giants maintain their perfect start to Season 13. The Red Giants dispatched RSG Malaysia 2-0 on Day 1 to maintain their spotless record and maximum 12 points, having not dropped a single game in their four matches played so far.

Selangor Red Giants displaced King Empire Esports at the top of the table after the league newcomers capitulated 0-2 to defending champions, Homebois, on Day 3. The Season 12 champions continued their winning run in front of a sell-out audience following an opening-week loss to Selangor Red Giants.

Elsewhere, Team HAQ handed NINERS another defeat on Day 2 to keep them winless after five games. This will have been a blow to NINERS, after the team from Negeri Sembilan brought in two new players this transfer window in Roamer Lim "Zayyy" Jin Gian and Jungler Maxwell "MAXXX" Alessandro to improve their performances. Team HAQ dropped precious points on Day 3 after losing 0-2 against TODAK but will be heartened at having done enough to maintain their third-placed position.

 

Barracuda Esports secured their first two wins of the season in Week 3, reflecting the transformative power of their refreshed coaching staff; coach Yayan "Backdoor" Hidayat and analyst Lee "XinHan" Kar Keat were transferred in for Week 2. Their first was a 2-0 victory over fellow strugglers, NINERS, on Day 1, while their impressive second came courtesy of a 2-1 win over RSG Malaysia.

 

At the end of Week 3, Selangor Red Giants top the table with 12 points, followed by King Empire Esports in second on 10 points, and Team HAQ in third on 9 points.
