KarlTzy carries BREN Esports to MPL-PH Finals, sets date with ex-team SMART Omega

KarlTzy was the messiah for BREN Esports, putting up a masterful performance to hand ONIC PH a 3-0 beatdown and send the storied organization to the grand finals of the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League Season Six, Saturday evening.

The 16-year-old will now go up against his former squad Smart Omega in the finals.

This is BREN Esports’ third finals appearance in MPL-PH, falling to arch-rival Cignal Ultra in the finale of Season Two and to ArkAngel in the league’s third installment.

KarlTzy – who is in his second season with BREN – opened the semifinals against ONIC with guns blazing, delivering a perfect Ling performance to kick-start their campaign. The SEA Games gold medalist had 12 kills, a death, and 13 assists all while evading ONIC’s aggressive composition.

MPL-PH veteran Ribo provided the firepower with nine kills, a death, and nine assists in Game One.

ONIC PH targeted KarlTzy’s hero pool in the second match, banning Lancelot and Ling, respectively in the first phase of the ban. However, KarlTzy, who was a former mage player before transitioning to a full-time, pulled a trick up his sleeve and picked Harith.

And the child prodigy did not disappoint. He ended Game Two with a perfect 7-0-6 KDA with the help of Lusty’s Khufra and Pheww’s Kadita.

BREN figured in a slow start with ONIC PH securing early pickoffs on Ribo (Uranus) and Pheww (Pharsa). But the team was able to hold the initial part of the match to set the table for KarlTzy’s Claude to wreak havoc in the mid-game.

KarlTzy finished with seven kills, a death, and three assists in the match that only lasted for 13 minutes and 31 seconds. He also finished the series with only two deaths, proving that he’s one of the most polished core players not just in the country but in the world.

This is KarlTzy’s first finals appearance along with rookie offlaner FlapTzy. On the other hand, sixth man Ejhay and tank Lusty are now in their second.

Meanwhile, Ribo now holds the most number of finals appearances with four along with former teammate and now rival Haze. Pheww will be on his third trip to the finals

Ribo, Pheww, and Lusty, will be gunning for their second title in the league.

They will be facing their former national team coach Daledalus and teammates Kenji and Haze of Smart Omega in the best-of-seven grand finals tomorrow at 7:30 p.m. Meanwhile, ONIC PH will square up against Execration in the battle for third at 4:30 p.m.

Smart Omega was the lone team that defeated BREN Esports in a series this season.
