SMART Omega reboots, releases entire ML roster

After a dismal campaign in the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League-Philippines Season Seven, Omega Esports has decided to part ways with its entire roster, Friday evening.

Part of the roster were long-time players EJ “Heath” Esperanza, Kenneth “Kenji” Villa, and Adrian “Toshi” Bacallo, who have been with the organization ever since they acquired the Finesse Solid roster in Season Three, along with Salic “Hadjizy” Imam, Jeniel “Haze” Bata-anon, and Jankurt “KurTzy” Matira.

“In the past three years that we’re together as a team and as a family, we had our fair share of highs and lows,” read the team’s statement.

“From earning multiple championships and runner-up titles here and there, to exiting early at some tournaments. Then having two of you represent our country at the SEA Games, eventually earning the 2nd spot consecutively and then most recently, flying off to Singapore for M2. There is still a lot that we want to mention but it’ll take us until tomorrow,” it continued.

“It pains us to say this, but it’s time to say thank you and goodbye to everyone.”

The expectations were definitely high for this Omega squad after making its first MPL finals appearance in Season Six where they lost to eventual champion Bren Esports in six games. Omega also finished second behind the same team in The Nationals Season Two.

Omega Esports then had a sensational run in the M2 World Championships before bowing out against Alter Ego to settle for a respectable fifth-sixth place finish in the 12-team world meet.

The team, however, looked lethargic come Season Seven, finishing with a 6-7 record in Group B.Omega Esports eventually snatched the second upper bracket slot in the group after edging both Execration and Nexplay Esports in points. All three teams had a 6-7 record.

After a subpar campaign in the regular season, the team finally met the inevitable.

Omega dropped to the lower bracket after a five-game showdown with Aura Esports. The team then found the end against Execration, who dispatched the Smart-backed squad via a 3-2 result.

The organization, though, will retain coach Tony “Ynot” Senedrin.

Omega Esports have yet to announce the replacements as of posting time.
