Mobile Legends: Bang Bang esports is well known for having a huge viewership. The M4 World Championship Series is the 4th annual world championship tournament for different teams around the globe. The series shows its global reach as it breaks the viewership record.
On the 11th of January 2023, the M4 World Championship’s upper bracket semi-final match started. It was between reigning champion Blacklist International and Indonesia’s RRQ Hoshi attracted the most viewers ever for an MLBB esports series.
According to Esports Charts, it reached 4.2 million. The best-of-five series shattered the previous record of 3.9 million viewers two years ago. It was during the M3 World Championship playoff match between ONIC PH and RRQ Hoshi. During this match, Indonesians made up the 2.4 million viewers, while the rest was the total of views during the live stream all over the world.
Why is This Matchup Legendary?
Viewers anticipated this matchup between one of the most well-known Indonesian teams and the three-time MPL PH champion. The competition is already third in esports for the highest peak viewership.

Both teams competed in the best-of-five match to try and win one of two spots in the upper-bracket finals, and the match did not disappoint. RRQ Hoshi won the first game successfully, but the Filipino team won the next two to reach the match point.
The 5th and final game was the most intense round, as RRQ’s Albert “Alberttt” Iskandar fought with his signature Ling pick. However, it was Tier One’s Blacklist International who won after 24 minutes of intense back-and-forth clashes and trading blows.
