The first week of the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League – Philippines (MPL-PH) Season 9 was pretty surprising.
Defending champion and World Champion Blacklist International stumbled in their first few matches. Meanwhile, both TNC and ECHO made it out unscathed.
TNC was led by Shemaiah Daniel “SDzyz” Chu who clocked the third-highest recorded total kills (21), most MVPs (3), second-most secured Turtle (10), and most secured Lord (8) in the first week alone. In addition, Jomarie “Escalera” Delos Santos led the league in damage dealt/gold.
On the other hand, ECHO made the right decisions to explore trades and player scouting to build a superteam. The team is now probably the strongest team ever led by Karl Gabriel “KarlTzy” Nepomuceno, Jankurt Russel “KurtTzy” Matira, and Frediemar Alaga “3MarTzy” Serafic.
The two top teams will battle it out in Week 2 and only one will survive with an undefeated record.
