"If Wise Can Be Versatile, So Can I," Exclaims Demonkite as RSG PH Secured Grand Finals Spot
The current meta of MLBB heavily favors tank heroes and junglers who rely on the Jungle Emblem. However, RSG PH proved that it can think outside the box with Demonkite’s Fanny pick in the second game against TNC Pro Team.

Demonkite received praises from fans and was even lauded by some of the popular MLBB content creators and pro players who considered him the next Fanny God.
RSG PH’s star jungler revealed that he practiced a lot just to master how to use Fanny. While he was not able to use the hero in their main practices, Demonkite was able to train himself through ranked games.
He added that he took inspiration from his mentor, Blacklist International’s Wise, as both of them have been trying to adjust to the meta while also coming up with unique ways to play the game competitively.
“At first, of course, I struggled. Then I remembered from my idol, he used to be a mage user and he became a versatile player,” explained Demonkite. “I was inspired by how he [Wise] can switch roles so if Wise can do it, so can I.”
RSG PH will have its grand final match on 1st May. It will be interesting to see if the Kingslayers will finally acquire its first championship title in the MPL PH Season 9.
