All teams have added players into their roster this season, why not make a rule to let all team participants in MPL Season 8 have all their players play at least 1 game or more?
The reason why we increased the slots on each team's roster is to let all teams have more game strategies with multiple players. We also hope the joining of new blood can increase competition in the league.
Decisions on the starting lineups should be made by themselves. MPL-PH league won't interfere with teams' own decisions on players using strategy.
Will the live or replay of MPL-PH is streamed on television this season?
It has always been our goal to promote MPL-PH to more groups through influential platforms such as TV stations. In addition to the existing Facebook, Youtube, TikTok, and WETV platforms, we are also negotiating with local TV stations in Manila.
However, cooperation with the TV station requires earlier planning and avoid conflicts with the TV station’s scheduling.
In this season, the schedule was postponed due to Covid-19, and hence broadcasting with major PH tv channels and stations had to be canceled.
But we are currently negotiating with some TV stations to seek the chance to broadcast S8 playoffs live on their channels.
Please stay tuned for more updates!
Last season, Execration used Bane and Faramis Combo in their match against Omega. Is this a bug on Bane? And if it is, why didn't MPL-PH ban him?
Whenever a potential bug is discovered in the community, we will report it to our development team and ask for confirmation.
Not only Bane, but also the previous diggie. We were all aware of these novel strategies. But our developer team has evaluated the use strategies of these two heroes. According to our investigation, these situations are caused by the hero's mechanism, not the game bug, so we did not disable them.
In addition to bugs, whenever a new hero launches, we will also give him an observation period of about 2 weeks and ban it. No teams can use it within these two weeks.
In addition, any heroes that are not banned are officially recognized as no bugs.
Will MPL develop an app for MPL only that can be downloaded on Applestore? It will be an app where we can see all the schedules, watch live streams, view statistics for all regions of MPL.
Creating and operating an APP is a matter that requires a lot of resources and manpower. In the current plan, we believe that the official website of MPL-PH can meet the fans' needs for most of MPL-PH's content, live viewing, and data tracking.
Therefore, we will not make a special APP to display all MPL-PH content recently.
And we hope all fans can continue to use the official website to learn all the information you want to know about MPL-PH.
Can MPL-PH add more difficulty in the Mythical Raffle Draw? I suggest adding some MPL trivia questions that only true fans can answer.
The original intention of MRD was to attract more fans to watch MPL streaming and provide fans with a better participating experience. Therefore, we will not design an excessively high threshold, and it will also facilitate the integration of new audiences.
But in the recent 2 weeks, we have also found that the questions are too simple, some core fans cannot get better rewards, and the experience is also be affected. We are also trying to make adjustments this season, but it will take some time to find a balance.
Please keep participating MRD, and we will continue to optimize it.
I think it would be better to create a poll on this type of Usapang. I think it will be easier for the fans to engage. Why not use a poll to collect answers to the topics?
The purpose of Usapang is to hype for the upcoming matches and let fans talk about the related topics of MPL-PH. We encourage fans to discuss in the comments area or share the post with your thoughts. We want MPL fans to talk and meet with each other and they can share different opinions regarding one topic. That's why it is not a simple answer collection event.
For some certain activities such as MRD we would use the poll to collect answers.
Last season, before a game starts, the casters will always remind the viewers to follow government protocols such as social distancing, wearing of face mask and face shield. This season, can we add more promotions about how to against COVID-19, such as a video?
MPL-PH also hopes to take on more social responsibilities, and we hope to do something different in addition to what we currently do.
We are currently confirming the copyright issues of some of the Covid-19 safety protocol videos released by the government. And we hope that teams can create some relevant Covid-19 safety advocacy videos that rely on the influence of the team and players.
After obtaining the relevant video material, we will immediately publish it in the live broadcast or social media promotion, advocating our audience to watch the game safely and take care of their own health.
I noticed that MPL-PH started to upload match clips this season and fewer unauthorized replays of MPL are controlled. What will be the rules for fans to create MPL replay videos?
All MPL-Philippines Season 8 competition broadcasts, video-on-demand, and all related content copyright belong to MOONTON Games. Any unauthorized release of raw tournament broadcast clips and content is not allowed.
We encourage the reproduction of tournament clips including but not limited to the following:
What is the process of selecting Weekly MVP?
The weekly MVP is voted by our casters and game observers. We consider that observers and casters have a say in the MVP as they know the flow/direction of the weekly matches including the in-depth stats of the game/players.
Each of them needs to vote for their top 4 after the end of Sunday matches, and here are the relationship between the rank and points each player will get:
Rank 1=5 points
Rank 2=3 points
Rank 3=2 points
Rank 4=1 point
MPL-PH league operations will afterward tally the points, with the top 2 gaining the most. If there is a score gap between 1 - 5, we will do another round of voting from the top two.
Should there be a score ga of more than five points, the first or top player will secure the weekly MVP title.
When conducting an interview with the winning team, can we ask some questions that were given by fans in the Facebook or Youtube comment section?
It has already been launched by our official sponsor NIVEA MEN's Facebook fan page.
Fans can visit the page and leave the questions they want to ask for the winners of that match during the streaming. There will be one fan's question to be selected and given the rewards.
Please stay tuned for the streaming and provide your questions for players.
