Four RSG PH Members Join Kelra as the Team of the Season for MPL PH S9
The grand finals match between the Kingslayers, RSG PH, and the Comeback Kings, Omega Esports was one of the most intense matches in the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League (MPL) Philippines (PH) Season 9. The match resulted in RSG PH taking the championship title while Omega Esprots settled for the runner-up spot. The championship team’s top-performing players this season - Jhonard “Demonkite” Caranto, Mid Laner Arvie “Aqua” Calderon, EXP Laner Nathanael “Nathzz” Estrologo, and Roamer Dylan “Light” Catipon joined Omega Esports’ star Gold Laner Grant "Kelra" Pillas as the league announced its Team of the Season.
MPL PH announced its Ideal Team for the Ninth Season
Through a Facebook post, the league revealed the pro players that make up the Team of the Season. The team comprised four RSG PH members alongside Omega Esports’ star Gold Laner.
The Kingslayer’s Gold Laner Eman “Emann” Sangco somehow did not make the cut. Fans speculate that it wasn’t because Emann was underperforming, rather, it’s because Kelra was simply the one-man army that carried Omega Esports to the grand finals.
Even RSG PH’s star jungler Demonkite believed Kelra was the bread and butter of the Comeback Kings. Through a post-match press conference, the jungler said “we thought we needed to kill Kelra because he was the key player of Omega [Esports].”
Making Kelra the main target proved to be the most effective tactic for RSG PH as Omega Esports could not retaliate without its star Gold Laner. The grand finals match eventually concluded with a 4-1 victory for RSG PH.
RSG PH and Omega Esports’ championship journey is far from over. Both teams shall head to the upcoming which is scheduled to kick off on 11th June. Omega Esports, previously known as , will defend its title as the King of the SEA MLBB esports.
