Each team is walking on thin ice as the Regular Season for MPL-PH Season 9 ends this weekend. Week 8 matches will determine their fate as the playoffs draw near.
In Week 7, RSG Philippines took over the top spot from Superteam ECHO. TNC still remains in third place with Bren Esports finding themselves at the pit of the rankings, with a slim chance to enter the playoffs.
This week, ECHO will finally be facing off Nexplay EVOS after an unfortunate event in Week 4 that hindered their battle. In this most-awaited face off, former Nexplay EVOS member and now ECHO’s pride Tristan “Yawi” Cabrera will prove that he was a valuable asset all along. See below relevant star match data:
