ECHO Proud has etched their name in the annals of Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Development League Philippines (MDL-PH) history, as they clinched back-to-back championships in a thrilling Season 2 showdown.

In a resounding 3:1 victory, ECHO Proud emerged as the undisputed champions of Season 2, with none other than Justine “Zaida” Palma claiming the Grand Finals Most Valuable Player (FMVP) accolade. Omega Neos and TNZ4 settled for second and third places, respectively.

ECHO Proud’s roster boasts an ensemble of exceptional talent, including Johnville “Outplayed” Villar, Santi “Santi Sucre” Noble, Mark Justine “Zaida” Palma, Jankurt Russel “KurtTzy” Matira, James “Jeymz” Gloria, and Aaren Maximos “Sindel” Palomo. The leadership of Coach Ronnel Jayson “Cjay” Espinoza has been instrumental in their journey to triumph. Notably, ECHO Proud’s Jaypee “Jaypee” Cruz, who is currently active in the MPL-PH, was absent from the roster. However, the MDL-PH team displayed unwavering strength and unity.

“Pinatunayan namin na kahit wala si daddy Jaypee (sa ECHO Proud roster), ay kaya namin,” said roamer James “Jeymz” Gloria. “Yung pagiging captain material ni Jaypee yung nawala samin, kaya nag-adjust kami para magtulungan kaming lahat. Kinailangan namin magstep-up dahil nawala sya,” added Johnville “Outplayed” Villar.

The team extended their heartfelt request to fans to rally behind their MPL Philippines counterparts, who are gearing up for the MPL-PH Season 12 Playoffs, commencing on October 25, 2023. “Support our other team, ECHO Loud, in the upcoming Playoffs,” shared Jeymz.

On the other side of the arena, Omega Neos, the valiant first runners-up, showcased incredible talent with their lineup featuring Eric Joseph “Cyre” Mercader, Christian “West” Mangabay, Ron Matthew “Matt” Papag, Dan Nathaniel “Dan” Yambao, Ryan Michi “Rayl” Asaoka, Luke Andrei “Luke” Redioca, and Mark Glenn “Super Markkk” Florencio, under the guidance of Coach Patrick Tetro “Dhap” Palacio.

This online competition witnessed ECHO Proud’s sheer dominance as they conquered a fierce best-of-five (Bo5) series against Omega Neos, seizing the coveted title and the lion’s share of the $20,000 prize pool.
