Despite setback, Nomed looks forward to Kelra rematch

Despite suffering a loss when TNC Pro Team faced ONIC Philippines in Week 3 of the MPL Philippines, rookie gold laner Rasec “Nomed” Sugarno chooses Duane “Kelra” Pillas as the opponent he is eager to face in the second half of the season.

“Kapag si Kelra ang katapat ko, parang ang taas ng morale ko. Parang lumalakas ang loob ko kapag siya ang kalaban ko. May something lang sa sarili ko na ganun nafi-feel ko kaya si Kelra ang gusto kong makalaban ulit,” Nomed said when asked why he selected Kelra as the rival he wants a rematch with.

“Magaling si Kelra. Sadyang gusto ko lang talagang makipagsabayan sa kanya,” he added.

Despite a losing record, TNC has recently gained recognition with competitive matches against ONIC Philippines and RSG Philippines, and Nomed’s performance has been crucial in TNC’s resurgence.

Nomed is one of this season’s promising rookies, securing a pair of MVPs in their 2-1 victory over Blacklist International.

His solid performance so far has been bolstered by confidence and trust in his team despite the early struggles.

“Sa kahit sino pong katambal ko sa parehong role, hindi ko sila tinitingnan na mas mataas sa akin. Tinitingnan ko lang na pareho kami. Kasi once na magpa-aura ako sa kanila, since galing ako sa amateur at bago sa MPL, tingin ko magiging advantage nila ‘yan,” he said.
