Defending champion Bren Esports delivered an impressive performance to hand Blacklist International its first taste of defeat in Mobile Legends Philippine League (MPL) Season 7 last week.

After losing Game 1, the Mobile Legends M2 World Champion needed just one mistake to turn the tide and break the Blacklist base to tie the series, 1-1.

M2 World Championship Most Valuable Player Karl “KarlTzy” Nepomuceno dazzled anew with his Benedetta in Game 3 as his team started to take over at the eight-minute mark.

Bren’s brilliance was in full display at the 13:40 mark when it forced the ultimate out of Blacklist while defending the base.

They took lord, destroyed turrets then killed three Blacklist heroes in a jungle fight that saw KarlTzy reach Godlike with a 7-0-6 KDA.

With just Angela and Yve left to fend the base, Blacklist was an easy taking for Bren, which ended the series in under 18:00.

But the morale-boosting win did not last long for Bren as it lost its next match to Aura PH, 1-2, a couple of days later.

Blacklist, meanwhile, regained its form with ease winning its next two matches over Execration and Laus Playbook Esports.

While Bren’s victory over Blacklist sent shockwaves in the MPL, it was Nexplay Esports’ backdoor play against Omega Esports that has gone viral on social media.

After losing the opening game, Omega fought hard in the second game with Selena, Granger, Pharsa, Gloo, and Estes against Nexplay’s Chou, Lunox, Harith, Lancelot, and Yu Zhong.

Omega was winning Game 2 and looked close to tying the series when it took lord at the 17:00 mark.

Omega, however, forgot to defend its territory that allowed Renejay “RENEJAY” Barcarse and John Paul “H2wo” Salonga to sneak on the top lane and break the base before it realizes it.

The win catapulted Nexplay to the third spot of Group B with a 4-6 standing and 13 aggregate points.

As other teams fight for spots in the playoffs, Cignal Ultra is already eliminated after dropping all of its matches in 10 games in the regular season.
