Omega Esports Announced Their Mobile Legends Team Roster
Omega Esports reveals its roster containing the former Execration squad who recently won the MSC 2021. Along with the old Execration squad, the team also welcomes four new players in their roster.

Former Execration Squad’s Message to the Fans
The MSC 2021 champions shared a message for their dedicated fans along with a promise that they will deliver the best performance in the upcoming tournament.
“Thank you for accepting us here. We will do our best. For us, this is only the beginning of our journey and we promise to do our best,” stated Z4pnu.
The Head of Sports at Smart, (who is the major backer of Omega Esports), Jude Turcuato, gave his comments on the new roster.
“I think it’s the best-case scenario for us. I think it was a slight disappointment last year (M2 World Championship) when we competed with Bren Esports in Singapore and we didn’t win," stated Turcuato. "And for us to be able to have this type of team with our revamp is for me the best-case scenario to have the Southeast Asian champions now fully supported by the resources of SMART and SMART Omega.”
Omega Esports secured the second place title in the MPL PH Season 6 after bowing down on Bren Esports in the grand finals. They also participated in the M2 World Championship where they performed well until they got defeated by RRQ during the playoffs, knocking them out of the tournament. With the former Execration squad now in their care, Omega Esports is eyeing the championship title and will stop at nothing to grab it.
It will be interesting to see if Omega Esports, together with Execration’s former members, will be able to embrace this crossover and surprise their fans in the upcoming MPL PH Season 8.
