EVOS Legends coach Bjorn “Zeys” Ong dissected both Sebastian “Pendragon” Arthur and Gerald “Dlar” Trinchera’s performance so far in the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League (MPL) Indonesia (ID) Season 10. Both players are currently undertaking the EXP Laner role with varying playstyles. Pendragon had his chance to shine during the first week of the season. Dlar along with two new players debuted in the second week and surprised the fans with an impressive performance. According to Zeys, the mental fortitude of both the EXP Laners and how they approach their matches is what makes them different from each other despite playing the same role.
EVOS Zeys compares Dlar and Pendragon’s performance
EVOS Legends finally fulfilled its fans’ wishes as Dlar debuted in the second week of the MPL ID Season 10. The former ONIC PH star player was also accompanied by two rookies Rachmad “DreamS” Wahyudi and Arthur “Sutsujin” Sunarkho who were former members of the team’s development division.
Dlar along with the two youngbloods spearheaded EVOS Legends into securing a 2-0 clean sweep victory against Geek Fam.
On one of Coach Zey’s livestreams, he explained the difference between the two EXP Laners and why Dlar performed better than Pendragon. According to the coach, the Filipino star player has a much more laid-back attitude while playing on stage whereas Pendragon is still struggling with his jitters.
“The most visible aspect is that the mental difference is very different. Dlar looks like he’s been a pro player for a very long time. When he plays on the stage he’s very relaxed,” stated EVOS Zeys. “Pendragon looks like when he’s on stage, he immediately goes blank.”
Pendragon has just been promoted to the MPL lineup after training under the development division. The pro player had a shaky performance in the first week of the MPL ID Season 10. This resulted in EVOS Legends suffering a clean sweep loss against both Bigetron Alpha and AURA Fire.
With Dlar finally showing up in the MPL ID Season 10, it will be interesting to see if the Philippines star player leads EVOS Legends to more victories in the upcoming matches.
