After advancing to the grand finals of the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League Season Seven grand finals, Execration became the second Filipino team to qualify for the returning Mobile Legends Southeast Asia cup this coming June 7 to 13.
They will join Blacklist International in the regional meet.
With that, Execration star Kielvj “Kielvj” Hernandez will miss an important date on his calendar – June 9, the debut of his girlfriend Nics Orense.
Make no mistake, the 16-year-old Kielvj is more than willing to set aside his personal time to represent the Filipinos in the upcoming meet.
With the former Aura PH sidelaner set to skip one of the most important occasions in his partner’s life, he vowed to do everything in his power to win the MSC title to make up for his absence.
“Ganito po kasi dapat mangyayare, ‘pag ka nalaglag po kami makakapunta ng debut niya kasi yung birthday niya June 9. E yung June 9 po, MSC so ayun po hindi ako makakapunta ng debut niya kaya uwian na lang kita ng trophy,” shared Kielvj, moments after Execration’s stunning 3-0 sweep of Aura PH in the lower bracket finals.
“Mag uuwi ako ng singsing kasi sa MSC champion singsing po yung trophy nun so para sa’yo yun.”
But before that, Kielvj and the rest of the Execration squad will face a tall task ahead of them as they will be going up against the league-leading Blacklist International in the grand finals of Season Seven.
The last time a Filipino squad brought home the MSC title was back in 2018, when the core of MPL-Philippines Season One champions Aether Main – who was carrying the Bren Esports banner by then – dominated the meet and took down Filipino rivals Digital Devils Pro Gaming (now Cignal Ultra) in the grand finals.
