Jonard Cedrix “Demonkite” Caranto has returned to the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang professional scene, taking his talents from RSG Philippines to sister team RSG Malaysia for the upcoming MPL MY Season 12.
“He once rocked the MLBB scene in MPL PH, and (now) it’s time for him to terrorize in MPL MY,” the Malaysian squad wrote in a Facebook post.
The 20-year-old player will still serve as a jungler, and will play alongside fellow Filipino Dale “Stowm” Vidal, who last suited up for Smart Omega as a mid laner.
Demonkite is the newest member of RSG Malaysia for MPL MY Season 12
Demonkite was one of the original members of RSG Philippines that joined as a franchise team in MPL Philippines Season 8.
However, they fell short of securing a spot in the M4 World Championship after finishing third in MPL PH Season 10, where they lost to eventual world champion ECHO in the lower bracket final.
Demonkite decided to skip the following season, citing personal reasons.
In his absence, RSG PH leaned on veteran John Paul “H2wo” Salonga and rising star John “1rrad” Abarquez, ending up third once again in Season 11 and missing out on a chance to defend their throne in MSC 2023.
Demonkite saw action for RSG PH in the ESL Snapdragon Pro Series Season 3 SEA where they topped their group, but got swept twice early in the playoffs to land at tied-fifth.
He will aim to bounce back from that shaky preseason, as he leads RSG Malaysia’s mission to return to the top after a disappointing 7th-8th place finish in the previous MPL MY season.
