I know I wouldn't be here in this position and comfort of life if it wasn't for her and the people who support me/us,“ he wrote.
The iconic jungler also thanked RSG Slate for taking him in despite not being able to shine in recent MLBB tournaments.
“I am also thankful to RSG, my new teammates and the coach because they fought and accepted me. I haven't proven anything but they accepted me, champs. I'm excited for this new phase of my life!” H2wo added.
RSG PH shall aim to win a championship title in the upcoming MPL PH Season 11 and defend its title in the upcoming MSC 2023. It will be interesting to see how the team will utilize an explosive jungler like H2wo in the upcoming tournament.
