SMART Omega drops MPL PH top seed Blacklist to lower bracket


Omega Esports overcame an early series deficit to send Blacklist International down the lower bracket via a 3-1 victory in the second round of the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League-Philippines Season Eight playoffs, Friday night.

With the win, the SMART-backed squad has advanced to the winners’ final where they will go up against a hot ONIC PH squad.

Blacklist International, who dropped two consecutive games in the series, tried to switch things up by putting Salic “Hadji” Imam in the jungler role. Meanwhile, Danerie “Wise” Del Rosario slid down the gold lane in Game Four.

However, that wasn’t enough to stop the streaking Omega Esports side who had to overcome a tough Game One loss to bag the series.

Duane “Kelra” Pillas’ Claude isolated Johnmar “OhMyV33NUS” Villaluna’s Angelo on the top lane as the rest of the Omega Esports contingent secured the Luminous Lord. From there, Omega Esports secured the crucial kills en route to the death push.

Kelra bagged the SMART 5G MVP with two kills, two deaths, and three assists in the Game Four win.

“Nung regular season lahat ng mga mali namin tinanggal namin ‘pag dating ng playoffs,”said Omega Esports coach Jomie “P4kbet” Abalos. “Yung mga shot call namin saka yung mga comms namin lalong lalo na yung chemistry namin [inayos namin].”

Edward “Edward” Dapadap’s Paquito helped Blacklist International comeback from a slow start en route to a 13-7 Game One win in 18 minutes and six seconds. He finished with four kills and four assists against one death to take the SMART 5G MVP.
