AMIHAN ESPORTS DISBANDS LOL ROSTER, ML NEXT
Amihan Esports announced on social media that it will disband its League of Legends: Wild Rift roster; its Mobile Legends: Bang Bang roster next.
It said in a statement that it will let its MLBB roster complete its scheduled tournaments which will be its last appearance in the gaming scene.
“Our tradition here in Amihan Esports, might not be similar to other organizations. But we sure did have fun. Friendships were born, dreams were made and heartbreaks were fixed,” the organization said.
“We might not be together on your journey to the world championship and MPL but always bring that Amihan Blood in you. We set you free because nobody deserves to be held back,” it added.
The decision came following a ban on the organization by Riot Games for a year after forging documents to qualify for a tournament.
The game developer said that several members of the organization, including the owner, were involved in the scandal by forging its Baron laner Karl Ken “KARLLL” Bautista’s age documents to qualify for the SEA Icon Series 2021: Summer Super Cup.
The team finished 5-8th at the tournament after losing to Vietnamese squad SBTC Esports in the single-elimination playoffs.
