MPL-PH Season 8 predictions
MPL PH Season 8 will be an exciting tournament to watch. The tournament becoming a franchise league is one thing, and it will bring in more revenue and attention to the PH region regarding MLBB. Much has also changed since the previous Season 7, and many teams will be looking to topple Blacklist from their throne.
Smart Omega’s roster made up of the old Execration squad is definitely a crowd favorite to win against their rivals, Blacklist. Nexplay EVOS and RSG have fans from outside the Philippines that they will be sure not to disappoint. Finally, old veteran teams like ONIC, BREN, ECHO, and TNC are inviting some new talent to make a run for it once more.
