    They're using ASUS Rog right? No wonder why JKT48 endorsement with Xiaomi is no more.

    Or even, JKT48 will be endorsed by Asus?

    I don't think so (?), but since they never really show the phone or laptop they use I always though they just use Asus Zenfone/Iphone?Xiaomi (Idk which edition though) since PUBG usually run quite smooth in Mid tier to high end phone

    Yes, they've uploaded some episode of JKT48 TV focusing on their gameplay and I saw some local gaming channel talking about it

    I suggest try watching some of their videos in JKT48 TV since most of them have a translation already

    I don't think so, there's some qualification to participate in an event as big as that and nobody in Valkyrie play ML I think. But at least we see UG perform there

    @ootamudkip @Idol-chan_Spiffy smart people can see a big chance. Hope Valkyrie48 would have a new subdivision for Bang Dream and tons new fans will come to JKT48. Bang Dream is currently the fastest growing franchise in Japan and it's also very popular among Indonesian weebs.

    Hey all

    On behalf of the MNL guys, just wanted to ask some questions:

    How successful would you guys say Valkyrie48 has been? For JKT overall? In its own right? For exposure? Everything. Just curious.

    Kiiiiinda wanna know what to expect/things MNL can improve on, since they just announced their equivalent like...last weekend. You know. It's a cool concept (Idols you can meet...with VIDEO GAMES), but I just wanna make sure we do this right lol

    Also, JKTxMNL Esports challenge down the line? I'd be down for that. Who else? Haha

    I'd say the members perhaps get a new fans among the gamers. But overall there is nothing notable yet. There is nothing wrong in both JKT and MNL's decision since there are big chunks of people will probably into girls with games. I'd say they'll grow bigger in time.

    And competition between Valkyrie48 and MNL's a really good idea and I'm positive that's what management's had in mind.
