It’s official.

Tristan "Yawi" Cabrera will head to Indonesia to play for AURA Fire in the upcoming Mobile Legends Professional League (MPL) season.

AURA announced on their social media pages, posting a theatrical video of Yawi’s arrival to the team.

Yawi has also posted on his Instagram, sharing his excitement to play for the Indonesian squad.

“I'm excited and looking forward to the new adventures and challenges I will face and experience on my new journey at Aura! I will do my best as a new roamer of Aura Fire,” wrote Yawi which was originally written in Indonesian.

Yawi is set to join Kabuki and High, along with Gugunnn, Aran, and Yehezkiel, as AURA aims to qualify for Mid Season Cup (MSC) for the first time.

The star roamer played a crucial role in ECHO's triumph in MPL Philippines and the M4 World Championships.

However, come MPL Season 12, Yawi’s playing time was limited as fans questioned the reason for his benching.

Fellow Pinoy MLBB pro player, Gerald "Dlar" Trinchera, meanwhile, has reacted to Yawi’s transfer to AURA Fire.

The two, however, will not face off in MPL Indonesia as Dlar, who used to play for Indonesian squad EVOS Legends, recently made the switch to Myanmar’s Burmese Ghouls.

Exciting times ahead for the MLBB pro scene!
