THERE will be a rematch between Blacklist International and ECHO in the grand finalsof the MPL Philippines Season 11 at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City.

Benedict “BennyQT” Gonzales and Karl “Karltzy” Nepomuceno starred anew as Echo survived RSG Slate Philippines, 3-2, in the lower bracket finals.

The win enabled ECHO to secured a spot in the grand finals, where they will face off against Blacklist International in a highly-anticipated rematch.

Actually, ECHO found themselves in a back-and-forth battle that went down to the wire.

After trading wins in the first four games, the deciding match proved a nail-biter with both teams fighting fightinglong and hard.

But in the end, ECHO came out on top.

ECHO’s performance in the lower bracket has been nothing short of mpressive with their players stepping up and delivering when it mattered most.

The team has shown incredible teamwork, with every member playing their role to perfection and contributing to the team’s success.

ECHO’s reward is a rematch against old nemesis Blacklist International.

It will be remembered that the two teams have a storied history, with Blacklist International beating ECHO last MPL season 10 and ECHO sweeping the Agents in the M4 world championships that were held in Jakarta, Indonesia last January 2023.

This time, ECHO is seeking to exact revenge and claim the championship title.

With the momentum and confidence from their lowerbracket run, ECHO hopes to get it done.

Gonzales, Nepomuceno and Sanford “Sanford” Vinuya helped ECHO book a ticket to the MSC in Cambodia in June.

Gonzales’s Harith was chosen the MVP of the match one after scoring seven kills, one death and two assists.

Sanford’s Yu Zhong were named the MVP of the match two had 6-1-3 KDA and KarlTzy’s Lancelot was the MVP of the match three finished 1-1-6.
