At the start of 2023, teams from various regions around the globe are set to compete and become the grand winner of the M4 World Championship, the fourth iteration of developer Moonton’s annual international tournament for its game Mobile Legends: Bang Bang. Now that all qualifier events have already concluded, sixteen teams have secured their spot to the final event of the 2022 competitive season.

Fans of the MLBB competitive scene will be familiar with several teams returning to the annual tournament. Perhaps the best team to watch closely is Blacklist International—the champion of last year’s M3. The team won the tenth season of MLBB Professional League in the Philippines, which is their third title in the league after winning the seventh and eighth season back-to-back, and will therefore defend their world champion title at M4. Other returning teams include RRQ Hoshi, Todak, and RSG Singapore.
Compared to past iterations of M World, the slots allotted for MLBB teams for different regions have been changed. Brazil will only have one representative come January, and the same goes with Singapore. Myanmar and the Mekong region, both of which did not participate at M3, get to each have one team this time.

On the other hand, the Commonwealth of Independent States will be skipping M4. Established MLBB regions such as the Philippines and Indonesia retain two slots each for their respective professional league champions and first runners-up.
Further information about the M4 World Championship, which will be held at Jakarta, Indonesia from January 1 to 15 next year with a $800,000 USD prize pool, is expected to be announced as the start date of the tournament nears.
