Two-time MPL PH Champion and M3 Mobile Legends World Champion Blacklist International got off to a great start in MPL Season 10 after a tough Saturday night Omega Esports.
After scoring the first match point, Blacklist brought out a no-tank lineup for Game 2 in Beatrix, Benedetta, Xavier, Thamuz, and Estes, while Omega Esports played Valentina, Akai, Esmeralda, Selena, and Wanwan.
Omega dominated the match right from the start, taking the lead in kills and destroying all but one of the blacklisted towers. But as they made one last push into the middle, Blacklist retreated with a barrage of heavy physical and magical damage that destroyed Omega.
The opening gave Blacklist enough time to break all three mid turrets en route to the base, thanks to the heroics of OHEB’s Beatrix, which saw him get a Mega Kill and end the streak with a 4/3/3 KDA.
“We were confident that we could somehow [Game 2], especially since we have Xavier and Beatrix. I waited for the opportunity for them to make a mistake and it happened,” said Blacklist International team captain OhMyV33nus after the match.
Earlier in the day, the new-look ONIC PH outlasted M3 Mobile Legends World Champion Bren Esports with a close 2-1 win, while fan favorite Nexplay EVOS hammered TNC with an emphatic 2-0 win.
