Blacklist International picked its eight-straight victory after sweeping ECHO, 2-0, in Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League-Philippines Season Eight, Saturday night.
The Tier One-backed squad, a team that swept its season matchup with ECHO, remained spotless with a league-best 8-0 record for 20 points.
“Ganun pa rin, kasi masyado pang mahaba. Meron pang six remaining games ‘di ba?,” said Blacklist International roamer and analyst Dexter “DEX STAR” Alaba. “So maximum points nun 18 pa yun. So, may chance pa ring makahabol yung iba, may chance pa rin kaming malaglag so ‘di kami magpapakampante.”
Looking to end a grueling Game One, ECHO initiated a clash inside Blacklist International’s jungle but was turned back by the Alice of Kiel “OHEB” Soriano after catching Benedict “Bennyqt” Gonzales’ Lunox off guard.
He eventually got a double kill after taking down Jankurt “KurTzy” Matira’s Gloo next as Blacklist International marched down the middle lane to seal the match.
In Game Two, Blacklist International leaned on the Bruno of Danerie “Wise” Del Rosario to take out ECHO swiftly for the 2-0 sweep.
The former ONIC PH jungler nabbed the SMART 5G MVP after finishing with two kills, two deaths, and eight assists all while dealing a total of 53,278 damage in the Game Two win which lasted for 20 minutes and nine seconds.
ECHO, who dropped its fifth game in eight outings, remained tied with the 5-3 RSG PH at the third spot with 11 points apiece.
Blacklist International looks to extend its winning streak to nine games against TNC next week, Saturday at 6:00 PM while ECHO will try to bounce back against ONIC PH tomorrow, Sunday at 4:00 PM.
