Through the ONIC Esports press conference, the two PH professionals Yeb and Kairi shared their roles for their new squad. According to Yeb, he will be the third coach for the esports organization and will be in charge of various aspects, but will be also looking to introduce the Indonesian squad to the PH culture.
“Currently ONIC Indonesia has three coaches, we have different tasks and contribute in different kinds of ways. As a coach from the Philippines, I share my culture, like discipline, etcetera,” he said.
As for Kairi, he will become the team’s new jungler for the upcoming MPL ID Season 10. The pro player stated that he was able to travel to Indonesia thanks to Coach Yeb’s guidance. “I actually got in Indonesia because my parents are okay to let me go due to Coach Yeb. And also, it’s a good opportunity for me to grow and I’m actually very excited for MPL S10 because the meta has changed and I get the chance to face the other junglers in the scene," he stated.
Kairi added that he is interested in joining Indonesia’s Mobile Legends: Bang Bang (MLBB) esports scene as it is much bigger than the Philippines. “I think I can grow and learn a lot. It’s a good opportunity for me because I haven’t won a championship yet and I want to face the Philippines in M4,” the star jungler said.
When asked which PH pro players would he like to see in Indonesia, Kairi stated that he would want Blacklist International’s iconic EXP Laner Edward "EDWARD" Jay Dapadap as well as his former ONIC PH squad. “I think Edward, but I don’t think he is going to Indonesia, but I want to invite him here. Then, my friends from Onic PH so we can hang out as well and I can fight them in the MPL,” he said.
With Yeb and Kairi joining forces with one of Indonesia’s powerhouse teams, it will be most interesting to see how the dynamic between an ID and PH pro players meshes and performs in the upcoming MPL ID Season 10.
