Another star has decided to leave Execration.
Three days after the departure of Benedict “Bennyqt” Gonzales, core player Jaylord “Hate” Gonzales has decided to follow suit.
“We would like to inform everyone that Jaylord ‘Hate’ Gonzales has officially left the Execration ML team.
“We want to thank Hate for all his contributions to everything we have achieved for the past seasons. Good luck on your journey,” Execration’s statement read.
The reason behind Hate’s decision was also not included in the statement.
However, a recent stream from long-time Execration player Billy “Z4pnu” Alfonso shed light on his departure.
“Umuwi si Hate guys, sobrang lala nung nangyari sa amin.
“Dalawa yung nawala sa amin…. Uuwi raw muna siya kasi may family bonding sila tapos biglang nag-chat na. ‘Out na ko sa team par.’ Ano yun?” Z4pnu shared on his stream last Wednesday.
Hate first joined Execration back in Season Four as its sixth man, playing behind long-time mage player Jomie “Pakbet” Abalos. He entered the squad along with Jeff “S4gitnu” Subang, replacing Williard “Lard” Verzo and Patrick “E2MAX” Caidic — whom the organization re-acquired in Season Five.
As the meta began to shift to a funnel strategy through a 1-3-1 positioning, Hate was handed the keys to the team in the following season. He took the core position as Z4pnu decided to take a backseat and settled on a fighter role. Execration finished fourth in Season Five replicating the season before.
Hate struggled mightily in Season Six, but thanks to the consistent efforts from Joshua “Ch4knu” Mangilog and Bennyqt, Execration finished at the podium with a bronze medal.
Just last Monday, Execration announced the departure of Bennyqt, who is headed to Aura PH according to Z4pnu’s stream.
And considering the removal of Kielvj “Kielvj” Hernandez and Renz “Renzio” Cadua from Aura’s roster, it is highly possible that the sophomore side laner is indeed headed to the two-time champions’ lair.
Execration’s current roster only includes four players with Z4pnu, E2MAX, S4gitnu, and Ch4knu.
