After spending the past four weeks down the cellar of Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League-Philippines Season Eight, reigning world champion Bren Esports finally turned things around.
The MPL Philippines Season Six titlist started its three-game winning streak after taking down Nexplay EVOS last week before going undefeated in Week Five after successive wins against EVOS anew and ONIC PH.
And for Bren Esports coach Francis “Duckeyyy” Glindro, the turnaround would not be possible without the help of the team’s new analyst Paulo “Pauloxpert” Munsayac, who also serves as the head coach of Sunsparks’ Mobile Legends team.
He also thanked Pauloxpert’s players for helping out his team especially during the past week.
“I wanna have a special shoutouts to the whole of Sunsparks particularly to Pauloxpert for helping the team out as an analyst and yung mga players niya na talagang nakikipagbond doon sa players ko,” expressed Duckeyyy in Bren Esports’ post-game press conference after the win against ONIC PH on Saturday night. “Alam mo naman mga bata and they need stimulus so it’s a good thing.
“At the same time maraming nangyari dito sa boot camp, I would like to say my gratitude doon sa Sunsparks kasi they bonded with my team. Ngayon may mga nakakausap na sila kasi previously wala talaga silang nakakausap kami kami lang so parang ang dali mag-burnout e, kasi wala stimulus or whatsoever,” he further explained.
The win against the second-ranked ONIC PH squad was a huge morale booster for Bren Esports, who prior to the winning streak, was at the bottom of the standings with a disappointing 1-6 record.
Now, the Bernard Chong-owned franchise climbed all the way to the fifth spot with an improved 4-6 standing with 12 points and will take on TNC next week, Saturday at 12:00 PM.
“Medyo nakahinga na kami, wala na kami doon sa ilalim but asahan niyo na we’ll still try to improve kasi marami pa naman kaming nakikita na dapat i-improve.”
