In the third episode of Legacies where the team captain of Blacklist International talked about his Mobile Legends professional career, OhMyV33nus shared what qualities he believes defines a pro player.

“First, they need to know that attitude comes first before skill,” he said. “In any organization, it’s important to value attitude above everything else.”

He also talked about how some players quickly fall apart in their careers due to their bad conduct.

“I’ve witnessed a lot of professional players that are really talented, but once they revealed their true colors, everything just went downhill. I’m hoping we learn something from that example,” he said.

Blacklist International ended their MPL PH Season 8 regular season with a 13-1 record, booking themselves a much deserved spot in the upper bracket playoffs.
