In an exclusive interview with ONE Esports Philippines, ONIC PH’s Coach Yeb gave the reason as to why the team’s MPL PH Season 8 lineup will have a second chance at redemption this season.

“Well, we have a solid foundation, and it has worked in both MPL PH Season 8 and Mobile Legends’ M3 World Championship. And, I still believe in my players,” he said.

He also talked about their chances of winning it all this time, remaining humble despite being one of the favorites in the upcoming season.

“I can’t predict what will happen this Season 9 because all the teams are strong, but I can only say one thing. The team is even more determined to win the championship. God willing,” Coach Yeb stated.

Last MPL PH Season 8, ONIC PH finished second, losing to Blacklist International in the grand final. Both teams qualified to represent the country in the prestigious M3 World Championship.
