We Talk To Mobile Legends’ Current MVP EVOS Pokemon About MOBAs & Pro Play
Ng Jun Hong certainly did not regret his choice to go full-time in Mobile Legends competitive play. It paid off big: his team EVOS SG won the recent Mobile Legends Singapore tournament 3-0 against Resurgence SG. On top of that, he snagged the coveted MVP award for helping his teammates while also pulling off fantastic kills and plays.
The fact that Ng, also known as EVOS Pokemon, is also working full-time as a financial advisor makes it all the more impressive that he manages to find time to go pro.Â Kakuchopurei asked one of the world’s champion team’s MVP about how he got to this point in his esports career.
When I was 20, I was in National Service (Singapore army) and my appointment was as a BMTC instructor, I always had pockets of admin time and therefore I started playing Mobile Legends.
As I continued to climb the ranks, the games were getting harder and harder, and my win rate kept dropping lower and lower. Knowing that there was always a higher level to reach excited me and kept me hooked on like adrenaline, if during the day I won a high-level game, I would feel very satisfied and proud of myself. I carried on like this until I reached global leaderboards, I was in the top 100 rank list.
It was then when I found out from a friend that Singaporeâ€™s top Mobile Legends squad EVOS was recruiting because the previous players were going to retire. I tried my luck and applied. 2 months later, to my amazement, Matthew (our manager) reached out to me and told me they wanted me to participate in their trials. After that everything was history
There is no better word to explain it, in EVOS SG, my teammates are like my brothers, close friends that I would hang out in and out of the game. I know that they have my back and I have theirs.
The toughest part for me would be time management. Balancing between a full-time job and training commitment is extra tough.
On one end, I have to ensure that I do good work for clients. On the other end, I have to ensure every minute of training is productive, so as not to waste my teammatesâ€™ time or become a burden to them.
Our toughest competitor would have to be Resurgence (RSG). A team that has always rivalled us since the start of MPL, their roster is filled with veterans who have similar or even more tournament experience than us.
In tournaments like these, execution eats strategy for breakfast.
Having a more detailed or better strategy won’t win games. Having more experience would mean better execution, and that is what win games.
In my opinion, the current meta is skewed towards supports and marksman compositions. This includes fighters that have high mobility like Benedetta, Uranus, and Chou.
However, the meta always changes with patches, what works well in the previous patches won’t mean it will continue to work in future patches.Â
