Kairi’s stellar performance in the regular season earned him the MVP crown
In his acceptance speech, he was all smiles and thanked those for believed in him.
“Continue to support us as we try to get the ticket to the M4 World Championship and at the MPL ID Season 10 grand final,” he said.
Other nominees for the regular season MVP included RRQ Hoshi’s Schevenko “Skylar” Tendean and Albert “Alberttt” Iskandar, Alter Ego’s Syauki “Nino” Fauzan, EVOS Legends’ Arthur “Sutsujin” Sunarkho, and ONIC’s Calvin “CW” Winata.
In the regular season, Kairi was included four times in the Team of the Week award, wherein five players were recognized every week for their performance. He was featured in weeks one, four, seven, and eight.
ONIC picked up Kairi and coach Paul Denver “Coach Yeb” Miranda in Season 10 after they were released by the organization’s Filipino counterpart in the offseason, marking the first time an Indonesian team brought over a player from the Philippines.
Kairi quickly adjusted to his new environment and became an integral part of the squad the moment he joined. He was in the starting five in Week 1, replacing veteran Gilang “S A N Z” in the jungle position.
They eventually finished first in the regular season with a 11-3 match score.
After sweeping Aura Fire in the lower bracket, ONIC will now face defending champion RRQ Hoshi in the grand final on October 23, at 5:30 p.m. GMT+8. Follow ONE Esports on Facebook for more Mobile Legends: Bang Bang guides, news, and updates.
