The biggest Mobile Legends esports tournament in Indonesia, MPL ID season 9 has officially closed its curtain with RRQ Hoshi being crowned as the champion of MPL for the fourth time. RRQ has taken their revenge from ONIC Esports which manage to defeat them in the previous MPL grand finals. Their victory in this season is not a surprise considering their consistent performance since the regular season.
There were some changes made in the team that include the new appointment of R7 as the new captain, replacing VYNN who became “King of the king” captain for several seasons, and the appointment of “Fiel” Petra as the new RRQ coach replacing Acil who is still in RRQ coaching team as an analyst.
MPL Indonesia Season 9: RRQ Hoshi’s road to victory
RRQ Hoshi managed to defeat ONIC Esports in thrilling five games where RRQ managed to secure four games while ONIC was able to secure only a sole consolation victory. ONIC had already made a mistake in their first game where they let RRQ Hoshi jungler, Alberttt pick his power hero which is Ling which made RRQ secure the first game with dominance.
However, ONIC stole the second game due to the brilliant performance from Kiboy who used roamer Selena to put RRQ roamer, Vynn in a very difficult situation. However, the wind blows back to RRQ as ONIC once again made a mistake by letting Vynn use his main hero in this tournament which is Franco. He successfully secured the enemy’s main damage dealer with his Iron Hook to confirm the victory for RRQ during the war.
It was a solid season for RRQ Hoshi as they finished at the top of the table with 12 matches and only 2 losses that they got from ONIC and Evos. They ensured their dominance in the regular season with Alberttt as the MVP for the regular season. In the Playoff, RRQ pushed Evos down to the lower bracket after exciting 5 games and in the grand finals, it was ONIC who met their demise at the hand of RRQ Hoshi.
RRQ Hoshi will have little time to celebrate their MPL title as they will prepare to become a representative of Indonesia in the biggest Mobile Legends tournament in South East Asia which is the Mobile Legends Southeast Asia Cup (MSC) in June 2022. ONIC Esports as a runner up will accompany RRQ Hoshi as the second representative and they will push themselves to bring back the MSC trophy to Indonesia.
