To say that Rivaldi “R7” Fatah has been an integral part of RRQ Hoshi would be an understatement. The EXP laner has helped the king of kings rise to prominence as one of MPL Indonesia’s top teams since joining the squad in Season 4.
The six years he spent as a professional esports player were split between three years as a Dota 2 pro player (from 2016 to 2019) and three years in RRQ’s Mobile Legends: Bang Bang division (from 2019 onwards).

Schedule constraints, according to R7, are a major cause of his chronic hand damage.

His old RRQ Hoshi teammate, Diky “Tuturu,” also retired in Season 6 due to hand problems.
R7 has revealed that he is getting physical treatment to prepare for the next M4 World Championship in spite of the agony he has been experiencing.

From January 1-15, watch R7 and the rest of RRQ compete for Indonesia in the M4 World Championship.
