The group stage will take place on November 11-14, followed by the Playoffs from November 15-17. Russia was also said to be running its qualification round on July 22 to August 17.
Besides the world championship, Moonton is also developing "Mobile Legends 2.0". This version will change the graphics display that will take better. Not only that, they also increase speed by 60%. So, you only need 5 seconds to enter the game.
