    So, I think we're all aware of the Hero Idol League by now. From what I understand, this is the process to get to our Game Senbatsu, right? So based on that, couple of questions:

    1) How big do we think the Senbatsu will be? How big SHOULD it be?
    2) Should they focus solely on Mobile Legends, or should they branch out to other games as well?
    3) Soon as we get the Senbatsu, I think they need a name. JKT has Valkyrie48. We need something badass like that lol

    Me personally:
    6-8 members sounds like a good number. We probably only have as many seriously into gaming. The problem is making sure they all make it in lol

    I understand MOBAs are popular worldwide, and MNL should focus on the tastes of the Filipino demographic. But me personally?...I want them to branch out. Eventually. I've heard PUBG is fairly popular in the Philippines, so that's a good choice. I'm an FGC guy, so something like Tekken or Street Fighter is something I'd like to see. But baby steps haha

    For a team name...I'm not sure yet. Need to study a bit on that. All I know is that it should be something like the MNL48 [Team Name Here]s. Like the MNL48 Eagles...or something. I'm open to suggestions lol



    But what do you guys think? Let's talk about it haha

    I think this is a good way to get more casuals to tune in to their content. The two episodes so far has done better than most of the Interactive Live episodes and they haven't featured the most popular girls yet.

    I would like the senbatsu to have 16 members but I'll be fine with less members. They just need to feature the ones who actually play the game and send them to local gaming conventions or something.

    Is it because Jamie's hoodie went up so much when they were celebrating their first win? You can see her undergarment at one point.

    that or there's also speculation with Gabb swearing when her hero got banned during one of those rounds.

    In any case they will probably edit it and re-upload.

    Dota 2 and LOL is probably too hard for some of the girls...

    Probably... Mini Militia

    Wait, Andi didn't make it? :(
    Also, is this official Senbatsu, or competition process still going?

    Competition is still on. Next week will be the battle of the teams.

    I was shocked that Andi didn't make it but maybe she can be the shoutcaster?

    It's just...how does the resident "Gamer Idol" of MNL48 not make the game senbatsu? Lowkey rioting if she's not at least the game senbatsu overall captain or something lol

    Umm the Game Senbatsu is decided by the "total points" on their game, you know, the numbers that appear after the game beside your picture
    If her number, or points as they call it, isn't enough to reach the Top 20, then she's of course excluded on the list, though I would like her as one of the commentators during the last game

    But I want to see them play a game for the first time and DIE HORRIBLY.


    Like when Sally Amaki played Dark Deception

    Hahaha dude you have an interesting idea there im from Indonesia and Jkt48 fans and when i knew they made Valkyrie48 for Esports i surprised and kinda disagree but seeing they did collab with Famous Mobile legends team and made new fans through that connection i think MNL48 need Esports team too. Well filipinos good at Dota2 i mean they have TNC so why dont you tell the management hahahha GL

    If she's always on the winning team, even if she has the lowest score among them, her final score will still have a +3
