Nobody says no to a great birthday party – especially if it involves people who have the same interests as you do.
Held at Fahrenheit 88 on 18 May in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, the event saw thousands of Malaysian gamers uniting to celebrate the third birthday of the popular mobile game ‘Mobile Legends: Bang Bang’.
The event, ‘515 Unite
’, marks the finale of the month-long roadshow where ‘Mobile Legends’ fans gather to celebrate the game as well as raise public awareness on responsible gaming.
During the event, scores of die-hard fans came dressed up as their favourite ‘Mobile Legends’ characters (they are called Heroes, in case you didn’t know) and also participated in special activities where they get to go home with some money-can’t-buy goodies.
Fans also had the opportunity to test their skills in mini tournaments, going up against professional ‘Mobile Legends’ players.
Not just that, the organisers also managed to raise a whopping RM25,000 through the sales of the limited edition 515 United Touch ‘n Go cards.
The profit from the sales were channeled to the PINTAR Foundation
, a non-governmental organisation who helps give underprivilege children a chance to study and succeed in their education.
Having kicked off in April, the 515 Unite roadshow swung across six states in Peninsular Malaysia, ultimately ending at Fahrenheit 88.
The main objective of these roadshows is to – yep, you guessed it - unite all gamers around the nation and celebrate the game together.
Judging by the huge turnout at all six locations – especially the finale at Fahrenheit 88 – we would say the roadshow has been a major success.
One of the highest grossing mobile games of all time, ‘Mobile Legends: Bang Bang’ has more than five million active players in Malaysia alone.
