H2wo and Mitch Liwanag Bag Awards at SMART MPL PH Press Corps Awards
To promote the spirit of sportsmanship and humility, the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang (MLBB) Professional League Philippines (MPL PH) Press Corps and SMART honor the talents who embody such qualities. The Sportsmanship award is given to the pro player who endured a lot yet remained firm and humble throughout his career in the MLBB esports scene. The Executive of The Year, on the other hand, is given to a talent who kept a team from sinking despite the intense pressure and hardship it faced. Aside from the prestigious award, the winners will also receive prizes courtesy of Razer Gold, the unified virtual credits provider.
H2wo wins Sportsmanship award; Mitch Liwanag is Executive of the Year
The MPL Philippines Press Corps, SMART, Razer Gold, and Evident PH Integrated Marketing and PR intend to celebrate goodwill both inside and outside the Land of Dawn during the inaugural awards ceremony.
RSG Slate PH's latest addition to the squad, John Paul “H2wo” Salonga was given the Sportsmanship Award for his incredible sportsmanship and humility throughout his career as an MLBB pro player.
As a former member of Nexplay EVOS, H2wo handled the many difficulties he encountered both within and beyond the game with composure and style. He will also receive a Razer Barracuda Pro courtesy of Razer Gold.
Teams frequently work under extreme pressure, both inside and outside the Land of Dawn, and their efforts can only be as effective as the management structure that supports them.
As a result, Mitch Liwanag, manager of ECHO, received the Evident Executive of the Year award, as one of the factors in how ECHO rose from a team under pressure to one of the best MLBB teams in existence.
Mitch Liwanag, who has been with ECHO since the organization entered the MPL Philippines in 2019, was essential to the team's development both on and off the competitive scene.
The winners will receive their awards at the first-ever MPL PH Press Corps Awards Night, powered by SMART, to be held in Amelie Hotel, Manila, on 8th March.
