Pheww uses negative comments on him as constructive criticism

Bren Esports team captain Angelo “Pheww” Arcangel was once again in the middle of fans’ crosshairs over the past week following the team’s horror 1-4 start in the MPL Philippines Season 10.

Just like what happened in the previous season, fans once again centered their frustrations on the two-time MPL PH champion with some even asking for his head.

But on Saturday night, Pheww showed that he is still one of the top support players in the country, leading Bren Esports to a 2-0 win over Nexplay EVOS for their first back-to-back victories since Season Eight.

The former Cignal Ultra star finished with two kills and four deaths in Game One before putting on Cecillion in Game Two with a game-high five kills along with four assists and a death.

Pheww said that he was very confident playing Cecillion in Game Two since none of the heroes from Nexplay EVOS can penetrate Bren Esports’ backline.

“Nung sa Game Two kasi sobrang confident ko na kapag umabot sa late game is wala na talagang aabot sakin. Depende na lang kung magfi-flicker talaga yung Valentina kaya nag-build ako ng Athena para sa kaniya,” said the Southeast Asian Games gold medalist.

“Nung na-reach ko yung lock item ko, sobrang confident ko na kahit sinong humarap kaya naming bigyan.”

Pheww also revealed that he used the non-stop bashing as one of his motivations in his bounce-back performance. He admitted that he was indeed underperforming in the previous weeks after letting the pressure get into his head.

“Ginagawa ko na lang motivation yun e kasi may totoo rin naman sa part na naga-underperform ako dahil nga dun sa iniisip ko baka matalo, baka matalo kami. Ginawa ko na lang motivation yun kasi ‘di naman maiiwasan yung bashers kahit sinong matalo,” he said.

Pheww, who is now in his tenth season in the MPL PH, is positive that he still has a lot left on his tank.

And according to him, he will not stop playing the game that he loves for as long as there’s still someone who believes in him.

“Sobrang saya ko na nakakuha ako ng ganitong opportunity na simula Season One pa lang nandito na ako. Ayoko na ring bitawan hanggat kaya ko pang mag-laro, hanggat naniniwala pa yung mga kakampi ko saka mga coach ko sakin,” Pheww bared.

“Siguro yung tiwala na nakukuha ko sa mga teammates ko saka coaches ko kasi iniisip ko na rin na baka hindi ko pa kayang sumabay, pero nung papasok ng season may training pool kami tapos nakikitaan pa rin ako ng potential ng mga coach ko. Saka naniniwala pa rin sakin yung family ko and yung partner ko sa akin.”
