Mobile Legends Organizers Can’t Be A Part Of Wild Rift

Organizers who participate in Mobile Legends could be forced to drop or never sign a team for Wild Rift due to an exclusivity contract with developer Moonton, reports Wild Rift news outlet WRCompetitive.
The CEO of Team Secret commented on the report on Facebook, noting that the ability to participate in multiple titles is crucial to the survival of esports organizations. Moonton would have to provide substantial compensation for such an exclusive deal, he said. Wild Rift marks Team Secret’s entry into the Philippines.
Despite not making a significant impact on the global scene, Mobile Legends is a major export in Southeast Asia – the region currently seeing the most esports activity for Wild Rift. Mobile Legends teams in the region have already signed Wild Rift rosters. Through Wild Rift, Alliance entered the region as well. earlier this year.
Ban Chee, Riot Games Esports Project Manager for Southeast Asia, tweeted during social media discussions surrounding this report without specifically mentioning Mobile Legends. Chee’s post reaffirmed that Wild Rift would not prevent SEA teams from competing in other esports.
Esports largely lack exclusivity contracts of this type, though some companies have tried to reduce exposure given by their esports athletes to competing titles. An early, leaked version of the LCS player contracts prohibited the live streaming of certain video games. This clause was removed after significant public backlash. Riot also fined G2 Esports for showing World of Warcraft Classic on one of its players’ computers during a LEC broadcast.
