They also won the title at the Top Clans 2022 Winter Invitational besting Indonesian Professional Team Geek Fam, who was parading Filipino Imports Allen “Baloyskie” Baloy and Jaymark “Janaaqt” Lazaro, in the tournament finals.

ZOL, on the other hand, is home to high-profile players after successfully securing the services of M2 World Champions Carlito “Ribo” Ribo Jr. and Allan “Lusty” Castromayor Jr. along with former MLBB Professional League Philippines standout Jeff “S4gitnu” Subang during their amateur tournament runs in mid-2022. Their MDL roster has not been announced yet as of this article.
