In the post-match press conference, Wise stated that he is not upset by this and is pleased that the squad is once again the MPL PH champions.
Is Wise deserving of the Finals MVP award in the MPL PH Season 10?
Shortly after , fans were curious to see who would be named MVP of the grand finals match. Fans screamed for Wise’s name to be called on stage, but to everyone’s amazement, Edward won the title.
Shortly after the award ceremony, Wise shrugged off the thought of being the MVP for this season and revealed that he wasn’t fazed by the decision.
“Personally, I wasn’t hurt. A while ago, when we became the champion, they kept shouting ‘Wise!’ then I said ‘Don’t jinx it, or else I wouldn’t be the MVP and it would hurt me,” the renowned jungler stated.
He added that the MVP title doesn’t matter much to him anymore as long as his team can achieve greater heights in the MLBB esports scene.
“If I was in my rookie years, of course, I would love to be the MVP. But I’m already at a time where even if I’m not the MVP, as long as we win as a team, that’s more important,” said Wise.
The star jungler joked that his regret is that he “wouldn’t be able to grab the prize money from the MVP award instead of the title itself.”
Wise added that perhaps, he would get his own MVP award in the upcoming M4 World Championship.
“My team deserves the MVP award. All of them shined in the tournament but we all have our own timeline. Maybe I would have mine during M4. I made a mistake on my statements before. I said M4 on one of the videos,” stated Wise.
Wise was one of the players who shocked the fans with his unorthodox picks in the grand finals of the MPL PH Season 10. The player debuted a jungle Valentina which caught ECHO off guard multiple times throughout the series.
