P4kbet in awe of Mikko’s vast improvements

After five of their first six games this season, Smart Omega has finally scored their first back-to-back victories and Coach Jomie “Pakbet” Abalos was all praises for roamer Deomark “Mikko” Tabangay who played an instrumental role for the team’s resurgence.

“Ngayon sobrang laki na ng improvement ni Mikko. Sana magtuloy tuloy pa,” the coach said when asked about his thoughts on Mikko’s recent performance.

Mikko’s initiations were key during their wins over TNC Pro Team and Onic Philippines that helped them escape the danger zone and tie with Nexplay Evos for the 5th spot in the standings.

Pakbet lauds Mikko’s adjustments and his new found chemistry with his teammates that sparked the team’s breakthrough wins.

“Feeling ko si Mikko sobrang komportable na siya sa team ngayon. Kasi dati nangangapa-ngapa siya. Mas marami ang tanong niya kaysa sa play na ginagawa niya kasi hindi niya alam kung tama ba yung gagawin niya,” the Smart Omega coach explained.

“Mas mabilis siyang nagkacatch-up ngayon. Sa team, siya yung pinakanag grow samin”

With Mikko’s growth translating to wins, it wasn’t surprising for the Smart Omega roamer to notch an MVP citation during their rubber match against Onic, finishing with a 0-1-7 KDA on Grock pick.

“Sobrang laking ng impact (ng improvement ni Mikko sa team) kasi sobrang laki nung pinalitan niya sa amin. Nung nawala si Ch4knu parang bumalik sa una yung team talaga,” said coach Pakbet

“Wala na kasi yung tinatawag namin strong call. Kasi si Ch4knu ganun magcall eh. Sobrang kailangan gawa agad. Parang di ka na magtatanong basta gagawin mo yung mga sinasabi. Sobrang laki ng impact nung nagiging ganun na rin talaga si Mikko, nung naaadapt niya na yung mga ginagawa ni Ch4knu kaya sobrang ganda na ng mga nagiging performance namin ngayon.”

Smart Omega will have to once again bring their A game tomorrow as they battle the hottest team in the league right now, Bren Esports, who has been undefeated over the past seven games.
