With Bren focused on taking down the Lord, the trio of Benedict “BennyQT” Gonzales on Beatrix, Karl “Karltzy” Nepomuceno on the Fanny, and Tristan “Yawi” Cabrera on the Chou sneaked behind and went for the base push while Sanford “Sanford” Vinuya on the Uranus and Alston “Sanji” Pabico bought some time for ECHO to seal the deal.

Such thrilling finishes certainly put the fans on the edge of their seats just like the SMART Match of the Year which was won by the showdown between the M2 and M3 World Champions Blacklist International and Bren Esports in the upper bracket finals of the MPL PH Season 10 playoffs.

Facing a hungry and gritty Bren which took the series lead after a tightly contested Game 3, Blacklist once again banked on its experience and signature poise to take the last two victories and set up a dance with ECHO for one of the M4 World Championship tickets.
