Blacklist International team captain Johnmar “OhMyV33NUS” Villaluna emphasized the importance of mental preparation ahead of their upcoming campaign in the 2023 Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Southeast Asia Cup.
After experiencing heartbreaking losses to ECHO in the grand finals of the M4 World Championships and just recently, the MPL Philippines Season 11 finale, the former MPL MVP said that it is vital for the team to work on their mental state ahead of the regional tilt.
“Siguro yung ano, aside sa in-game adjustments na kailangan namin i-improve, yung outside that siguro. Yung mental,” said OhMyV33NUS.
“Kasi isa sa mga sobrang nakakadurog ng utak [yung] matalo ng ganung way sa grand finals. So isa na yun sa mga pineprepare namin. Personally, doon ako nagfofocus din ngayon,” she added.
Blacklist International, eager to secure their first MSC title, has been placed in Group D alongside Egypt’s Occupy Thrones and MPL Malaysia champion Todak.
The MSC 2023 tournament is scheduled to take place from June 10 to 18 in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.
