Despite an exceptional performance at the M4 World Championship, MobaZane, team captain and star jungler of the Valley, finds himself without a team for the upcoming North America Challengers Tournament (NACT).
This tournament is crucial as the winner will represent the country at the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Southeast Asia Cup 2023 in Cambodia in June.
MobaZane’s former teammates, namely, Jang “Hoon” Seong, Oscar “SHARK” Vo, and Peter “Basic” Lozano, have left the squad and formed a new team, The Ohio Brothers, for NACT.
EXP laner Ian “FwydChickn” Hohl has also announced that he will sit out the tournament as he deems it less important compared to qualifying in the M-series or playing in MPL.
This leaves MobaZane alone, without any star players to support him in his quest to qualify for the international tournament.
MSC 2023 is especially significant for the 21-year-old jungler, as he had previously advocated for North America to be included in the tournament, which eventually led to Moonton adding North America, Turkey, and the MENA region for the first time.
Despite the setback, MobaZane is determined to prove himself and secure a spot in MSC 2023.
