Omega Esports imposes one month salary fine to Kelra

One of the teams competing in the upcoming MPL PH Season 8, Omega Esports, posted an official statement regarding the penalties that the organization will impose on one of its members, Kelra. According to the post, the pro player will receive a fine equivalent to one month worth of his salary on top of the penalties received from MPL PH.

The organization promised that they will make the necessary steps to make sure this incident never happens again.

It is our responsibility to take care of our athletes by making sure that we provide a holistic development plan for them,” stated Omega Esports.

Kelra apologizes to Ramella and the V33Wise duo

Following the penalties and backlash from the Mobile Legends community, Kelra made a follow-up statement, apologizing to IDNS Esports' pro player Ramella and Blacklist International’s OhMyV33nus and Wise.

The Omega Esports' young prodigy admitted the immature and irresponsible behavior that put him in the bad situation. He apologized to all the fans, the teams involved, and the players he offended.

It was explained to me how heavy my mistakes were due to the words I said. I admit that I didn't put much thought into what I said, and because of this, it resulted in actions and values that are opposite to being a professional player,” stated Kelra.

The pro player ended his statement by saying he accepts all the penalties he received from both organizations, Omega Esports and MPL PH.

Overall, Kelra received a 2-week suspension and an undisclosed fine from the MPL PH League alongside the fine imposed by Omega Esports.

Due to Kelra’s 2-week suspension, the pro player will be missing out on at least five matches for his team, Omega Esports. However, due to the ongoing Extended Community Quarantine in the Philippines, the MPL season is currently on hold with no official schedule on when it will resume.
