R7 takes a break from competitive MLBB
Hand injuries are a common issue among seasoned MLBB pro players. Veterans like EVOS Legendsâ and RRQ Hoshiâs Diky âTuturuâ also suffered from similar health problems leading to the former taking a break and the latter retiring from their career.
Through a YouTube video posted on the official RRQ Hoshi channel, the iconic team captain, R7 announced that he is taking a break from competing in the MLBB esports scene due to a similar issue. According to the iconic veteran, his hand injury greatly limited his capability of performing to his best performance which ultimately led him to take a break from playing competitively.
However, this isnât the end for the iconic team captain of RRQ Hoshi as he will remain a part of the esports organization and will support the squad behind the scenes until he is ready to return to playing competitively.
âI will continue to support Team RRQ because Season 11 will start soon,â he stated. âI will continue to support them by live streaming on Youtube and many other ways.â
RRQ Hoshi is yet to reveal who will replace R7 as the team captain in the upcoming MPL ID Season 11. Fans will have to keep their eyes peeled for more updates in the future.
