Blacklist International swept of their rivals Smart Omega 2-0 to retain their top spot in the Mobile Legends Professional League-Philippines (MPL PH) Season Eight rankings after a player had to absorb a suspension and a fine.
Blacklist Kiel “OHEB” Soriano made an “unprofessional gesture” after his team won over Smart Omega, was caught on camera during the live broadcast of Blacklist’s post-match celebration.
In a statement by the league, Soriano violated rule 12.2.1 — making a “prohibited pose.”
Since the incident, the player has received a fine from his organization and served a two-game suspension. MPL PH will also be slapping him with a penalty of their own.
The league blasted Soriano for his actions.
