Smart Omega handed BREN Esports its first loss of the season via a 2-0 sweep, in the first-ever application of the Project NEXT patch in the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League-Philippines Season Six, Friday evening.
Hadjizy played phenomenal with the Ling, flaunting a clean 7-0-11 KDA to push Smart Omega’s standing to 6-3 in Group B, still at second place.
Through the early game efforts of Hadjizy, Haze (Selena), and Toshi (Ruby), Smart Omega was able to put up almost a 5,000 advantage in the gold department entering just the five minute mark of the match.
BREN would not go down without a fight, though. Figuring in a four-on-four skirmish for the turtle lane, KarlTzy (Roger) was able to use his Retribution to steal the turtle from Hadjizy.
KarlTzy went on to take down Haze, while Pheww (Kagura) and Lusty (Baxia) followed it up with a kill on Heath (Jawhead) and KurTzy (Yu Zhzong), respectively. KarlTzy then reached killing spree after erasing Toshi under Omega’s first turret in the middle lane to complete a four-man wipe.
Left with no one to defend, BREN immediately took down two turrets in the middle lane to even the scales. Omega, however, was quick to recover from the botched clash and erased BREN Esports’ comeback attempt.
Heath and Haze provided the support for Omega, combining for six kills and 25 assists throughout Game Two. Meanwhile, Kurtzy had six kills, three deaths, and seven assists.
KarlTzy was the lone bright spot for BREN, finishing with six kills, four deaths, and two assists. Bren remain in the top spot of Group B with a 7-1 card.
Meanwhile, Execration ran over the struggling BNK Blufire, 2-0, in the second match of the night.
Execration upped its slate to 4-4 in Group A to punch its ticket to the next round. On the other hand, BNK dropped its 10th consecutive loss of the season.
