After a shaky performance in the first few weeks of the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League Philippines (MPL PH) Season 11, Blacklist International finally found its momentum as it competes for an upper bracket slot. The team’s resurgence is all thanks to the resilience and leadership of its captain Johnmar “OhMyV33nus” Villaluna. The pro player is considered as one of the pillars of Blacklist International who led the squad to secure multiple championship titles.
The Razer Gold MPL PH Press Corps Player of the Week award is decided and deliberated upon by print and online media covering the MPL PH beat, along with the league’s broadcasters and operations team.
OhMyV33nus is the Player of the Week for MPL PH Season 11 Week 7
Healer mains rarely shine in the local Mobile Legends scene, as the meta favors crowd control and initiator support or tank heroes.
But, as the regular season of the MPL PH Season 11 nears its conclusion, Johnmar “OhMyV33nus” Villaluna demonstrated why she is regarded as one of the best supports in the world by bringing a different flavor to Blacklist International’s Ultimate Bonding Experience (UBE) strategy.
The regular season MVP’s healing specialty remained as the team’s anchor as Blacklist International continued its quest to defend the MPL Philippines throne, earning herself the Razer Gold Player of the Week from 28th March to 2nd April.
OhMyV33NUS averaged 9 assists and was involved in 83.64 percent of Blacklist’s kills during the weekend sweeps of Onic Philippines and RSG Slate Philippines.
The three-time MPL PH champion’s impressive performance gave Blacklist International a better chance of taking one of the two upper bracket slots in the playoffs, demonstrating a different flavor to its UBE strategy with her Floryn pick and turning back the clock with her Estes.
Despite sweeping RSG 2-0 with her signature hero running free in the drafts, she believes there is still room for improvement.
“It’s a 5 out of 10 for me. Because that wasn’t my [best] game yet,” said OhMyV33NUS, who will receive a Razer Blackshark V2 courtesy of Razer Gold.
OhMyV33nus surpassed teammate Edward “Edward” Dapadap, Bren Esports’ David “FlapTzy” Canon, and TNC’s Ben “Benthings” Maglaque for the weekly award, which is voted on by print and online media covering the MPL Philippines, as well as the league’s broadcasters and operations team.
