What makes MOBA genre games (Multiplayer online battle arena) popular and are players from different circles?
Moonton, as a developer, shares stories about how Mobile Legends can bring success. This Chinese company claimed that it had made some efforts to maximize the game.
According to Moonton Executive Director Justin Yuan, the first thing to focus on players' experience. If players encounter problems such as networks, they immediately move and resolve them.
"In sports games that need networks and solve network problems, we use more than 500 servers that allow us to reach out to all users," Yuan said at the World Summit on Creative Economy (WCCE) in the Bali Nusa Dua Convention Center on Thursday (8 / 11). ).
The second attempt is to reduce the size of Mobile Legends. This is so that users with slow internet connections are not burdened with the additional data being loaded while playing games.
"In Southeast Asia and South America, 75 percent of users use Wi-Fi, it's difficult download 100 MB package. So we're trying to reduce the installation package to less than 100MB, even for many more games that use more than 100MB, "he added.
Remember that the developer also thinks of the users who have it smartphone with low specifications. Yuan said, Moonton has always assured that every cell phone including class input level, you can easily launch the Mobile Legends game.
Then go to Mobile Legends, which is the next focus. Moonton is committed to constantly updating games to enrich its content, from other game modes to Hero characters.
Content localization is also needed to enable Mobile Legends to remain popular in the country. Indonesia, for example, Moonton implemented Indonesian language and heroes with local culture.
"Two years ago, the Mobile Legend had only ten heroes, they continued to update, and now there are 70 Heroes, much better than the first version," Yuan said.
"We are working with local artists such as Yuniarto, the creator of Gatot Kaca, one of the most popular heroes of the current ML game, and our games also use Indonesia's first version."
All his efforts prove that mobile legends are the most popular smartphone in Indonesia and several other countries. This game even has its own professional league league, reported by more than 8,000 eSports teams.
In September Moonton, a developer of Mobile Legends, revealed that the number of ML players in Indonesia reached 100 million. This number is half the total number of Mobile Legends in the world of 200 million.
