Popular streamer and influencer Elyson “Wrecker” Caranza will be going pro after signing with RSG Philippines for the upcoming Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League-Philippines Season Eight, the organization announced on Wednesday night.
Wrecker is the second streamer to go professional after Bren Esports picked up Raven “L3bron” Alonzo to its 10-man roster.

Also part of the squad are former Nexplay Esports support Dexter “Exort” Martinez, former ONIC PH gold laner Christian “Iy4knu” Manaog, and former Cignal gold laner Arvie “Aqua” Calderon.

RSG’s rumored expansion to the Philippines has already been going on since June last month and was first reported by Tiebreaker Times.
The Singapore-based squad has two other MPL teams in Singapore and Malaysia.
