After Kairi “Kairi” Rayosdelsol, Allen “Baloyskie” Baloy, and Gerald “Dlar” Trinchera took their talents overseas, another veteran MPL PH player will be playing for a Mobile Legends: Bang Bang squad outside his home region.
Positive Gaming, a Mongolian Mobile Legends: Bang Bang team, acquired former RSG PH veteran Joshwell Christian “Iy4knu” Manaog, the organization announced on their Facebook page on Wednesday, August 10.
This comes after RSG PH announced that the 18-year-old player was not part of the active roster for MPL PH Season 10 a month ago. He was then placed on the transfer list, along with Earvin John “Heath” Esperanza.
Iy4knu is the first MPL PH player to join a Mongolian team.
Iy4knu’s achievements in MPL PH
Iy4knu first played in Season 4 for Dream High Gaming, which was later acquired by ONIC Philippines.
He played alongside some of MPL PH’s most iconic players such as Johnmar “OhMyV33nus” Villaluna, Danerie James “Wise” Del Rosario, Dlar, Baloyskie, and John Michael “Zico” Dizon.
After Season 4, the team represented the country, along with Sunsparks, at the M1 World Championship where they finished in 9-12th place. After three seasons, ONIC PH released Iy4knu. He was immediately acquired by RSG PH during their Season 8 debut.
According to the team’s official Facebook page, the Mongolian squad is currently in a bootcamp in the Philippines. The team has also yet to reveal its full roster but promises that “big things will happen” in the future.
There is currently no official professional leagues hosted by Moonton in Mongolia.
