Following the conclusion of the group stage on August 13 – October 3, MPL Indonesia Season 8 will now enter its playoff phase, during which six of Indonesia’s highest-ranked Mobile Legends: Bang Bang squads will compete for a total prize pool of US$300,000 and two direct entries to the M3 World Championship.

Six playoff teams have been determined after the conclusion of 56 head-to-head matches involving all teams during the group stage phase. RRQ Hoshi and ONIC Esports will enter the playoffs contention with an upper-bracket advantage based on their group stage finishes of first and second, respectively.

EVOS Legends, Alter Ego, Aura Fire, and Bigetron Alpha will start their journey from the lower bracket before facing the upper bracket teams later on. Geek Fam ID and Rebellion Genflix have been eliminated after finishing seventh and eighth, respectively, in the group stage.

Together with the announcement of the playoff, Moonton has revealed a new playoff structure, which includes a new best-of-five (BO5) format for all matches except the grand final, which will be increased to a best-of-seven configuration.

Moonton has also announced that the playoffs will take place in Bali, marking the first time in the MPL ID’s history that the tournament will be hosted outside of Java island. However, the event was restricted to the public owing to safety concerns about the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak in Indonesia.

Six teams will kick off the action in Bali, where they will battle it out from October 21-24 for their share of the tournament’s US$300,000 prize pool and direct entries to the US$800,000 M3 World Championship, scheduled to take place in December.
