With the shift in the current meta brought about by the recent patch, Blacklist International roamer Renejay “Renejay” Barcase has joined the “healing party.”
During their 2-1 victory over TNC Pro Team in Week 3 of the MPL Philippines Season 12, Renejay, known for his tanky heroes, utilized the Mathilda and Rafaela picks, which quickly earned him the new “healman” moniker.
Previously nicknamed Hitman due to his explosive plays, Renejay told Tiebreaker Times that the patch actually worked in their favor, especially since he is already familiar with the buffed support heroes.
“Mas naging pabor po sa amin nung nag-patch. Mas pabor kasi nagagamit ko na nung wala pang patch. Malaki yung adjustment ko sa playstyle pero nalalaro ko na siya dati pa yung paglalaro ng support heroes sa practice namin,” he said.
Despite the victorious debut of his support picks, Renejay is far from satisfied with his performance.
“Parang marami pa akong kailangang i-improve. Dahil sa mga coaches po, mas nag-iimprove yung laro ko tsaka yung mga decision-making ko. Yung mga coach ko yung dahilan kung bakit ako nag-improve,” explained Renejay.
“Kulang pa rin ako sa grind sa mga support heroes. Kailangan ko pa siya mas masterin kasi sobrang master ko po yung mga tanky heroes eh. Yung sa support, okay naman na po siya pero hindi sapat sakin yung okay lang. Gusto ko talaga yung malakas.”
With Blacklist securing their fourth win in the last five matches, they will become a more dangerous team with Renejay providing flexibility in the roamer position.
