Mobile Legends: Nexplay and Omega are fined for violating the MPL rule

violation of Competitive Integrity and Professional Manner

Nexplay Evos and Omega Esports, two giants of the Mobile Legends world were fined by the MPL Philippines Operating Committee with a huge amount over the controversial and unethical activities between the two teams on the last day of the regular season.

During Nexplay VS Omega’s MPL-PH Season 8 Game 1 and 2 on Week-7: Day 3, there were concerns raised about both teams’ competitive integrity. This had a negative effect on the community, which harmed the league and all eight teams involved. The league revealed the findings of its investigations just days after the strange series between Nexplay and Omega, in which both teams used unusual strategies and scored decisive victories in the above-mentioned matches.

The consequence of the incident led the MPL to fine both Nexplay and Omega with over ₱150,000 ($2960) penalty due to the violation of sections Competitive Integrity and 12.1.5 Professional Manner.

Details of the Sections violated Competitive Integrity

“Teams are expected to play at their best at all times within any MPL Game and to avoid any behavior inconsistent with the principles of good sportsmanship, honesty, or fair play. For the sake of clarity, team composition and the pick/ban phase will not be considered when determining whether this rule has been violated.”

We want to reinforce that competitive integrity is one of our core values as a league. Any team or player is subject to the rulebook and guidelines as stipulated within, and they must take full ownership and accountability of what they’ve done
