During the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang (MLBB) SIBOL Qualifiers Phase 2, Nexplay EVOS’ head coach John “Zico” Dizon revealed that the team’s jungle specialist, John Paul “H2wo” Salonga was rushed to a hospital. While the reason was not revealed, prior to the incident, H2wo tweeted that he had a stomach ache. This led to Nexplay EVOS suffering a penalty resulting in a 0-1 match score, in favor of Blacklist International. H2wo was able to join the team during the third match of the BO5 series but it was to no avail as Nexplay EVOS was eventually sent to the lower brackets of the MLBB SIBOL Qualifiers Phase 2 despite his return.

The second round of the tournament was met with issues as Nexplay EVOS failed to show up in time for its first match against Blacklist International. Due to this, the team suffered considerable backlash from its fans as many were looking forward to the match.

Nexplay EVOS’ head coach posted a tweet addressing the criticism and explained why the team was not able to participate in the second round of the MLBB SIBOL Qualifiers Phase 2.

“H2wo was rushed to the hospital, if you have nothing good to say then you should go to sleep,” captioned Zico in his Twitter post.

Blacklist International was granted the victory in the first match as Nexplay EVOS faced a medical emergency. Nexplay played in the second match with Renren "Ureshi" Nitsuga filling in for the role of the team’s jungler before H2WO returned for the third game.

According to Nexplay BON, H2wo has returned to the bootcamp but is yet to fully recover.

The match closed with a final match score of 0-3, in favor of Bren Esports, resulting in Nexplay EVOS falling to the lower bracket.

Despite this recent misfortune, Nexplay EVOS still has a chance to recover in the lower bracket of the MLBB SIBOL Qualifiers Phase 2.

Nexplay EVOS will also be participating in the upcoming MPL PH Season 9. The new season will officially start on 18th Feb and will feature eight franchise teams competing for the lion’s share of the $150,000 USD as well as the championship title.
