CADENZA surprised as he makes little adjustments for NXPE

After making a name for himself in the amateur scene, Kenneth “CADENZA” feels glad that he can finally showcase his skills in the biggest Mobile Legends: Bang Bang stage in the country.

Following a tough debut loss to RSG PH, CADENZA stepped up his game on Sunday afternoon to lead Nexplay EVOS to a 2-0 victory against ONIC PH.

“Masaya po kasi first time po namin ‘to, na ganito [sa MPL],” said CADENZA during the MPL post-match interview.

“Sobrang nakaka-proud kasi nagagawa ko yung mga nagagawa ko noon sa amateur tapos ngayon hanggang sa MPL nagagawa ko.”

The former AP Esports roamer was on point with his initiations in the opener, tallying three kills and eight assists without a single death on Ruby. That gave NXPE the early 1-0 cushion against the M3 World Championship silver medalists.

But it was really in Game Two where CADENZA truly made his mark.

Teaming up with veteran Jeniel “YellyHaze” Bata-anon (Mathilda), CADENZA brought out his aggressive style of play using Hilda. He constantly invaded Kairi “Kairi” Raysdelsol’s Yi Sun-Shin which started right from the get-go.

With CADENZA flexing his muscles inside ONIC PH’s jungle, Michael “MP the King” Endino (Roger) stole the remaining resources to hit Kairi’s scaling.

From there, NXPE built a huge lead which they did not let go of, resulting in the win.

CADENZA bagged MVP honors in Game Two with two assists and a death. He also absorbed a whopping total of 139,357 damage in the 14:46-minute series-winning match.

Nexplay EVOS will take on Blacklist International next on Friday at 8:00 PM.
