KarlTzy out to become first two-time SEAG gold winner in ML

Less than a month after becoming the first two-time Mobile Legends: Bang Bang world champion, ECHO jungler Karl “KarlTzy” Nepomuceno has set his sights on another historic goal this coming May.

And that is to become the first two-time ML:BB gold medalist in the Southeast Asian Games.

Karl and the rest of ECHO’s main five qualified to the SIBOL ML:BB national team combine after placing second in the national team qualifiers a month ago. Bren Esports, who won the event, together with ONIC PH and MDL team GameLab complete the cast.

The 18-year-old former M-series MVP and Bren Esports veteran mid-laner Angelo “Pheww” Arcangel are on track to become the only two-time SEA Games gold medalists in the ML:BB event if they make it to the Philippines’ six-man lineup for the 32nd edition of the Games which will be held in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.

KarlTzy and Pheww were both part of the 2019 team that captured the event’s first-ever gold medal in Manila.

“Motivation ko talaga yun kasi gusto kong makuha lahat e,” KarlTzy told Tiebreaker Times in an exclusive interview during the SIBOL Combine on Saturday afternoon at the High Grounds Cafe in Quezon City.

“Syempre si Pheww din gusto ko rin masabayan magkaroon ng gold medal ulit. Masaya saka nakakamiss sila kasama,” he added.

The former Bren Esports star said that he’s very eager to make it to the team after failing to be part of the previous edition.

And whether he makes it into the final lineup or not, KarlTzy said that he’s already happy to just be part of this special group and help the national team’s buildup.

“Masaya po, nakakatuwa kasi kahit parang nag-champion na ako nandito pa rin ako, nakakasabay pa rin ako,” said KarlTzy.

“Sobrang motivated ko ngayon talaga tapos yung mindset ko ganun pa rin, enjoy lang kahit anong mangyari.”
