Adrian Rob Son, Nexplay’s head of business and development, believes that the new lineup has improved the team’s competitive drive and is now ready to face any challenges in the upcoming MPL PH Season 8.
“We believe the lineup we chose is ready for the incoming challenges. Esports is a continuous progress, and in its progress, it includes the birth of new players in the scene. It’s been a long couple of months scouting and probing players we can buy out from various organizations, but we decided to hone the players we have and create a new breed of Super Rookie Players under Nexplay Evos Banner," stated Rob Son.
Nexplay had a disappointing run in the previous MPL PH Season 7 where they got defeated by MPL PH underdogs, Work Auster Force, in the first days of the playoffs, resulting in an early exit. With a new and much more solid team roster, Nexplay EVOS is back in action and will stop at nothing to grab the championship title for the upcoming MPL PH Season 8.
It will be interesting to see if the new and refined Nexplay EVOS roster will be able to deliver a stellar performance against the biggest teams such as Bren Esports, Blacklist International, and Omega Esports. Fans can definitely expect intense matches in the upcoming MPL PH Season 8.
