SMART Omega taps SG coach, adds Arisen to Wild Rift roster

Omega Esports bolstered its roster ahead of the Wild Rift Southeast Asia Icon Series PH Fall season by adding two vital pieces, Wednesday.

The Smart-backed squad welcomed Singaporean coach John “Glaceox” Lim and former Nexplay Esports baron laner Miguel “Arisen” Pison.

“Let’s all welcome the newest addition to our LOL WR team, John ‘Glaceox’ as our Head Coach and Miguel Vincent ‘Arisen’ Pison as our 6th player,” opened Omega’s statement.

Glaceox last coached Alliance in the Summer Super Cup where they finished at 5th-8th place. Before this, he steered the squad to a championship in the SEA Icon Series 2021 in Singapore.

“Coach Glaceox Gaming is known as one of the best in the LOL scene in Singapore. We are sure that his knowledge, analysis, and expertise in the league will bring out the squad’s A-game,” the statement continued.

On the other hand, Arisen, was one of the top players of the Nexplay Esports squad that disbanded last July.

The 19-year-old Arisen led Nexplay Esports (formerly known as Aether Rift) to nine underground titles and the SEA Icon Series preseason title.

“Arisen has always been one of the team’s main headaches in their past tournaments with his flashy, confident, and over courageous plays that were one of the keys to his previous team’s victory. We know that Arisen will be a perfect fit for our team composition,” said Omega.

Glaceox and Arisen will join an already formidable roster composed of Ronel “Stronger” Tan, Jaiby “JLC” Paglingayen, John Lloyd “JLC” Dela Cruz, Maynard “Arise” Limon, and Gerald “Taymlaps” Bermundo.
