What a kick-off, as U Mobile’s Mobile Legends Campus Championship Season 3 blasted to a roaring start with overwhelming response for Central Zone (Selangor and Wilayah Persekutuan) and Southern Zone (Negeri Sembilan, Melaka and Johor) with all available slots for teams snapped up within days of registration! The highly anticipated UMMLCC Season 3 is attributed to the two successful seasons of tournament that has been held since in 2019, an event created especially for university students to hone and further develop their skills and interest in the eSports arena.
To date a whopping 177 teams from 75 universities have already confirmed participation with registration still ongoing for 9 more States, and 4 High School zones. If the overflowing response for Central and Southern Zone is to be the benchmark for the season, then fans can look forward for an amazing tournament for the rest of the year.
This Season, the realigned tournament started by categorizing states under zones with Campus & High School teams in Central being the first to play, followed by Southern, Northern, East Coast and East Malaysia.
After concluding an action packed Central and Southern tournament, U Mobile would like to congratulate Central Zone winners, Selangor Champion, team XTINCT from University Kebangsaan Malaysia, and Wilayah Persekutuan Champion, team ASTRAZANECA from UiTM Kampus Selayang, all walk away with RM1,350 and 600 diamonds each, while second place are team RUSUH from Politeknik Sultan Idris Shah Selangor and team INCOGNITO from University Teknologi Malaysia KL will receive RM650 plus 450 diamonds, respectively.
For Southern Zone, a huge shoutout for the winning teams from Negeri Sembilan, Melaka and Johor. State Champion from Negeri Sembilan, team TFK LIMIT from UiTM Rembau and second place is team Skadoosh from Politeknik Port Dickson. State Champion from Melaka, team UTEM H from Universiti Teknikal Malaysia Melaka and UTEM A from the same university. Meanwhile, Johor Champion goes to Don’t Forget Joki from University Tun Hussein Onn Malaysia and second place PIS Pride X AG Tech from Politeknik Ibrahim Sultan.
All teams fought hard throughout the competition, after 58 hours of battling, prompting both of UMMLCC casters, Ikuto and Adeen, commented “these teams rightfully deserved to be crowned champions”. All State Champions have secured a place for the National Championship whereas all teams from second placed will compete once again via the Wildcard tournament, a second chance to be at the National Championship.
