Omega Esports downplayed the post-game trash talk coming from Blacklist International in their lower bracket finals match, Sunday evening.
In Billy “Z4pnu” Alfonso’s Facebook live stream moments after the match, Omega Esports veterans Joshua “Ch4knu” Mangilog and Patrick “E2MAX” Caidic revealed some parts of the exchange that transpired right after the team lost the all-important Game Four.

“Uwi daw kami eh, uwi. Uuwi na nga kami eh,” revealed Ch4knu who was inside the car together with E2MAX and Z4pnu during the live stream.
“Baka ihahatid tayo? Sabi ni Ch4knu hatid niyo kami,” quipped the support veteran, who had a stellar Selena outing in Game Four that went for naught.
Despite the rude farewell that they received from the defending champion, Z4pnu downplayed the incident by saying that it’s all part of the game.
“Okay lang ‘yun guys, normal lang ‘yung trash talk eh,” said Z4pnu.
“Deserve. Deserve namin ‘yun,” chimed Ch4knu.
The SMART-backed squad previously sent Blacklist International down the lower bracket. It was on the verge of being swept before putting up a massive fight in Game Three that extended the series.
Unfortunately, despite a strong early game from the team in the early goings of Game Four, Blacklist International still came out victorious with Salic “Hadji” Imam’s Chou leading the way.
Omega Esports capped off the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League-Philippines Season Eight with a third-place finish.
