MPL PH: MP the King shines as NXP Evos picks apart ONIC

Debuting Michael “MP the King” Endino starred as Nexplay EVOS picked up its first win, 2-0, against ONIC PH in MPL Philippines Season Nine, Sunday afternoon.

This is MP the King’s first MPL game, replacing John Paul “H2wo” Salonga in the starting unit.

Already up by as much as 6K in the gold department, Nexolay EVOS took out Allen “Baloyskie” Baloy’s Valentina to take an uncontested Luminous Lord in the 17:01-minute mark.

ONIC PH was able to survive the first phase of NXPE’s siege, but with Gerald “Dlarskie” Trinchera’s Yu Zhong sacrificing himself to buy time, the MPL PH Season Eight second placer’s tower defense eventually fell.

MP the King had an outstanding debut for Nexplay EVOS, putting up six kills and four assists against one death on Karina in the 18-6 Game One win in 18 minutes and 45 seconds.

Jhonwin “Hesa” Dela Merced (Popol and Kupa) had a 3-1-9 in his MPL debut while Jeniel “YellyHaze” Bata-anon tallied a game-high 13 assists along with two kills and two deaths on Yve.MPL-PH-9-Nexplay-def-ONIC-Game-One MPL PH: MP the King shines as NXP Evos picks apart ONIC ESports Mobile Legends MPL-PH News  - philippine sports news

In Game Two, Kenneth “CADENZA” Castro’s Hilda and YellyHaze’s Mathilda applied the early pressure on Kairi “Kairi” Rayosdelsol’s Yi Sun-Shin while MP the King (Roger) stole all his resources. This put Kairi behind early in the game.

It was a total team effort for NXPE with Rainiel “URESHIII” Logronio (Benedetta) splitting the map and Hesa (Popol and Kupa) providing the bulk of the damage.

While Kairi kept himself safe despite NXPE’s constant invasion, the gold advantage proved too much. ONIC PH failed to mount a comeback.
