Nexplay EVOS officially welcomed former MPL champion Jeniel “Haze” Bata-anon to its roster, Monday evening.
Tiebreaker Times was the first to report the development.
Haze, along with the entire Omega Esports Mobile Legends roster, was released by the SMART-backed organization three days ago.
“We are excited to announce and welcome HAZE to Nexplay Esports,” Nexplay EVOS’s statement opened.
“His extensive game knowledge and experience brought about his previous achievements such as MPL-PH Season 1 CHAMPION, MPC 2017 CHAMPION, MSC 2018 CHAMPION, SEACA 2018 CHAMPION, and TOP GLOBAL TANK will surely be of great value to the team! We’re looking forward to your next achievements with us.”
Haze will be joining Nexplay Esports big three Tristan “Yawi” Cabrera, John Paul “H2wo” Salonga, and Renejay “RENEJAY” Barcarse in lifting the banner of its newest partner EVOS.
Nexplay Esports ended its MPL Season Seven campaign with another first round playoffs exit after a 1-3 loss from Work Auster Force in the lower bracket playoffs.
The move will also reunite Haze with his former coach and handler Setsuna “Akosi Dogie” Ignacio — who took Season One champion Aether Main — under his wing in the league’s inaugural season.
