Ribo and Lusty Hints at Stepping Down From Bren Esports

In a post-match conference for the MPL PH Season 7 Playoffs, the two Bren Esports players Ribo and Lusty shared their thoughts about leaving Bren Esports. Both Mobile Legends esports pros stated that they will only step down if the team can find suitable candidates to replace them. 

"I'll just take a breath of fresh air, no ML, for now, something like that," stated Ribo during the interview. "It (taking a break) still depends if there is someone more deserving to replace me in my role, someone better than me."

Lusty also assured fans that he won’t be leaving Bren Esports until the team can find someone who is qualified to replace him in his role. 

“For me, it depends if Duckeyyy can find someone who is worthy to replace me,” said Lusty. “If no one can replace me, I can’t leave. My team doesn’t like it when someone can’t keep up with them.”

One of the team members Ralph Mico "Coco" Sampang, jokingly added that he will be replacing Lusty in Bren Esports as the tank.
