Smart Communications commended top Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Pro League (MPL) teams Blacklist International and ONIC PH after their fiery and epic finals showdown last October 24.
The nine-hour MPL PH Finals broadcast saw defending champions Blacklist International play a full day: First defeating Smart Omega 3-1 in the lower bracket final earlier in the afternoon, then advancing to rout ONIC in an impressive 4-1 performance in the grand finals later that evening. Esports fans were also thrilled to have witnessed the match with 300K concurrent views last Sunday on Smart’s official FB page.
“Smart is all about providing Filipinos with not only the best experiences to live their passions, especially in esports and mobile games, but also with avenues where esports athletes can succeed. We congratulate Blacklist and ONIC for a successful run in the eighth season of the Mobile Legends Pro League,” said Jane J. Basas, SVP and Head of Consumer Wireless Business at Smart.
Blacklist fully dictated the pace and momentum of their bouts against ONIC and Smart Omega, with the outstanding contributions from Wise’s Bane dominating key clashes early and easily clearing out the opposing team. The sheer dominance of Blacklist in team fights thanks to Wise, supported by OhMyV33NUS’s equally strong gameplay as Mathilda, led them to easily take objectives and quickly secure the victory, especially in the final game giving them the most coveted triumph.
Blacklist is the second team to win back-to-back championships for MPL-PH.
“Sobrang napakaimportante ng championship na ito dahil mahihirapan kaming makuha ang respect na deserve ng mga players ko, at respect na deserve namin. Ito na yon, ito na ‘yong senyales na ibigay ang aming respect,” (This championship is crucial in earning the respect our team and players deserve. We totally earned it with this performance) said Blacklist head coach Bon Chan.
Blacklist and ONIC are set to represent our country in the upcoming M3 World Champions this December.
