Ribo leads cast of MPL vets in MDL as ZOL, Gamelab, Smart Omega rosters


M2 World Champion Carlito “Ribo” Ribo Jr. will be returning to the spotlight as he will spearhead ZOL Esports’ foray into the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Development League (MDL) Philippines Season 1, the team announced on Friday.

Doc Ribo will join forces with former RSG Philippines goldlaner Joshwell Christian “Iy4knu” Manaog in leading a young ZOL squad that will be parading up-and-coming stars from the amateur scene.

Smart Omega Neos also had a similar approach with four former MPL veterans leading the way.

MPL Philippines Season 5 Finals MVP Kiel VJ “KielVJ” Hernandez will headline the squad along with other veterans in former Nexplay Evos Jungler Michael “MP the King” Endino, former Smart Omega midlaner Cesar “Amethyst” Santos and journeyman Jeff “S4gitnu” Subang.

Gamelab on the other hand unveiled an intact roster that won the Top Clans 2022 Winter Invitational and King’s League tournament in 2022.

They will be banking on Mark “Dokmen” Nazar’s experience in their MDL campaign. Dokmen is a former MPL PH athlete having played in the league in Season 4 under Geek Fam PH.
