Tiebreaker Times


KarlTzy almost became a full-time student if not for ECHO’s offer

Karl “KarlTzy” Nepomuceno already conquered everything there is in the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang professional scene.

In 2019, he led the Philippines to the gold medal in the Mobile Legends event before taking charge in Bren Esports’ championship conquest in the MPL Philippines Season Six Championship a year after.

KarlTzy then cemented his place as one of the best Mobile Legends talents in the world by putting up a performance of a lifetime in the M2 World Championships.

There, he copped both the group stage and finals MVP en route to the Philippines’ first-ever ever world championship in the world meet.

Indeed, KarlTzy had a spectacular run at such a young age.

Things went a sour turn, however, when Bren Esports crashed out of contention in the past two seasons of the MPL PH.

After the disappointing seasons, KarlTzy already made the decision to skip professional play and pursue his studies.

“May kulang e saka disappointed din ako. Kasi parang kahit anong galing ko mag laro, talo pa rin,” said KalrTzy on his performance last season that prompted him to make the move.

That, until ECHO inquired for his services.

“Ako po talaga nag-decide kasi kung hindi po ako kinuha ECHO mag-aaral na lang po dapat ako.

“Kaya nung kinuha ako siyempre natuwa ako kasi makakapaglaro pa rin ako,” revealed KarlTzy, who is currently in Grade 11 in the STEM curriculum.

KarlTzy admitted that he felt sad upon leaving his former team, with who he shared a special bond in the last two years.

However, the 17-year-old wunderkind believes that the transfer was a long time coming.

“Nakakalungkot din po kasi matagal na rin po kaming magkakasama ng mga yun e. Pero ganun po talaga, kailangan mag adjust para manalo ulit siguro,” said the former MPL Philippines MVP.

“Malaking bagay ‘to kasi bagong routines na naman, tapos marami ako lalong matututunan dito feeling ko,” he added.

When asked about his lost passion, KarlTzy was quick to assure that he’s already back on track and ready to go for ECHO.

“Opo, sobra po,” KalrTzy affirmed.

“Sobrang laki talaga kahit hindi dahil sa bagong environment e, talagang gigil talaga ko lumaro ngayon.”
