The tension and excitement are definitely rising! Each team is now walking on thin ice as the Regular Season for MPL-PH Season 9 ends this weekend. Week 8 matches will determine each team’s fate in the tournament as the playoffs draw near.
In Week 7, RSG Philippines took over the top spot from Superteam ECHO. TNC still remains in third place with Bren Esports finding their selves at the pit of the rankings, with just a slim chance to enter the playoffs.
This is the week when ECHO finally faces Nexplay EVOS after an unfortunate event in Week 4 that hindered their battle. In this most-awaited face-off, former Nexplay EVOS member and now ECHO’s pride Tristan ‘Yawi’ Cabrera will prove that he was a valuable asset all along.
Another action-packed and highly-anticipated battle is one of survival between Blacklist International and Smart Omega. The tables truly have turned for Blacklist, which took MPL-PH by storm in Season 7 and Season 8. This week will be one to watch to see if the team either makes or breaks its chance at the playoffs.
On the other hand, Smart Omega has always been a dangerous team, as seen during the MPL-PH Season 7. Will it get the last shot?
