Karltzy Aims to Prove He’s Still Champion-Caliber in M4 World Championship
The star jungler of ECHO Philippines (PH), Karl "KarlTzy" Nepomuceno revealed in an interview that he is ready to take on the world stage again in the upcoming . The pro player was a former member of Bren Esports, who previously won the M2 World Championship, before he left the squad and joined a new team. KarlTzy also shared his thoughts on the two iconic junglers - Kairi “Kairi” Rayosdelsol of ONIC Esports and Michael “MobaZane” Cosgun of The Valley. While ECHO’s star jungler admitted that the two players are strong, he thinks he won’t have much of a problem when facing RRQ Hoshi’s Albert "Alberttt" Iskandar.
KarlTzy ready to prove himself on the world stage once again
KarlTzy was once considered as one of the best in terms of skills in the jungle role. His abilities were put to the test and proven during the M2 World Championship. His team, Bren Esports, was able to score a 4-3 victory after a grueling encounter with the Cambodian team, Burmese Ghouls, in the grand finale.
Shortly after their world champion run, Bren Esports fell into the so-called M-Series curse where world champions start to decline in terms of performance. KarlTzy then moved to ECHO where he continued his esports journey alongside an all-star lineup.
With the M4 World Championship in his reach, the pro player shared his thoughts on facing the best junglers on the world stage, once again.
“Kairi, because he is strong and we have the same hero. Also, MobaZane, because he’s quite stubborn,” stated KarlTzy.
Both of the two players mentioned showcased impressive performances during the M3 World Championship. Kairi is now playing against ONIC Esports Indonesia and is considered the best player in Indonesia.
MobaZane, on the other hand, is playing under The Valley and is showing a lot of improvement since his training in the Philippines. The pro player is no longer a one-trick marksman jungler and can play a larger pool of heroes that fit well in the meta.
While KarlTzy has nothing but praises for Kairi and MobaZane, the pro player has a different take on RRQ Hoshi’s iconic “Baby Alien” Alberttt. The Indonesian player earned the name because of his exceptional mechanical skills similar to the legendary Muhammad "Lemon" Ikhsan who was so good, fans would say he is an alien because his gameplay is “out of this world.”
Despite Alberttt’s reputation as one of the best in Indonesia, KarlTzy thinks he isn’t much of a threat.
“He’s nothing, I wish him good luck,” stated KarlTz.
ECHO is seeded in Group C and will compete against RRQ Hoshi for the knockout stage upper bracket position. The encounter between KarlTzy and Alberttt shall be an exciting story to follow.
As an M2 World Champion title holder, KarlTzy aims to prove that he is still a champion-caliber player and one of the best junglers in the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang esports scene.
“I just want to prove that I’m still good despite a lot of [players] keeping up, I was just letting them catch up to me,” stated KarlTzy.
It will be interesting to see if KarlTzy is able to win his second world championship title at the upcoming M4 World Championship.
