Onic Philippines appears to have found their rhythm, with Dean “Raizen” Dumagui leading the way as they secured their second consecutive sweep, this time against TNC Pro Team, in Week 3 of the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League (MPL) Philippines Season 12 at the Shooting Gallery Studios in Makati City on Friday.
After starting the season with back-to-back 2-1 losses, Onic has finally demonstrated their strength by sweeping the last two matches, improving to fifth place in the standings with eight points on a 2-3 win-loss record.
In Game 1, Raizen (Martis) shut down TNC early in the game, helping Onic establish a 5-0 kill lead late in the 9th minute while tallying a 1-0-3 KDA.
Czedrick “Yoshinu” Romero (Chou) then closed out the series by leading a 14th-minute skirmish, securing a double kill in a 3-1 exchange that provided them with the opportunity to execute a game-winning base turret siege, making it 1-0.
Raizen (Lancelot) and Frince “Super Frince” Ramirez (Lylia) then delivered in Game 2, finishing with KDAs of 3-0-4 and 2-0-5, respectively, to complete the sweep.
