MPL PH is conducting an investigation regarding the Nexplay EVOS and Smart Omega Match

The last week of MPL PH Season 8 was exciting as every team was fighting with everything they got to secure crucial points to earn them a spot for the upcoming playoffs.


However, in the last series of matches of Week 7, Nexplay EVOS and Smart Omega’s match has garnered criticisms from the Mobile Legends community that it prompted the MPL PH Operating Committee to start an investigation to know what really transpired during their match.

As what really occurred during the game, both teams made some questionable decisions in the first and second part of MPL PH Season 8 Week 7.

In the first game, all members of Nexplay EVOS took Flame Shot as their Battle Spell without a single Retribution. Renejay “Renejay” Barcase, Tristian “Yawi” Cabrera, and Jeniel “Haze” Bata-anon even got heroes that were outside of their roles. Smart Omega then went and won the first game with a 39-4 kill, in favor of Smart Omega.

In the second game, however, Smart Omega chose two pure support heroes, Angela and Diggie. It was at the second game that Nexplay EVOS turned the tide and got the upper hand. Setsuna “Dogie” Ignacio went to finish the second game with a 17/12/15 KDA. With a feeding Diggie strategy in full effect, the game finished with a 61-26 kill in 15 minutes game time.

Nexplay EVOS went on to finish the whole series and won with a 2-1 score, after a more serious third match.

After the series, the MPL PH Operating Committee immediately released an official statement and told fans that they are now looking into the issue.
