AURA PH TO REIGNITE SQUAD AMID LOSS OF TWO KEY PLAYERS
After the exit of key players in Kielvj "Kielvj" Hernandez and Renzo "Renzio" Cadua, Aura PH hinted the transfer of two new players to revamp the team.
“Tonight, we will say farewell to our ‘The King’ Kielvj and ‘The Phantom Offlaner’ Renzio,” AURA Philippines posted on its Facebook page.
The team sparked the revelation of the addition to the squad by posting silhouettes of the two in a poster that clearly shows Execration’s (EXE) Benedict “Bennyqt” Gonzales and ONIC PH’s Gerald “Dlar” Trinchera the day after.
Bennyqt had left Execration and the move was confirmed by franchise player Billy “Z4pnu” Alfonso during his Facebook stream.
“Wala nang Bennyqt sa Execration. Guys umalis na si Benny. Madaming nagtatanong kung bakit siya umalis. Siguro guys mag-a-Aura na siya. Aura PH na ‘yung team niya ngayon,” said Z4pnu.
Bennyqt admitted that he wanted to play a core or support position in leaving his former team.
Dlar, on the other hand, surprised everyone on his supposed move to Aura PH being a star player for Onic PH.
Aura PH players Allen “Greed” Baloy and Chan “Raflessia” Fajura welcomed Dlar on his transfer to Aura posting their messages on their respective social media accounts.
However, following the recent reports from sources from Tiebreaker Times, Dlar will be staying with Onic PH after all.
With Dlar out of the picture, another player from another MPL team will be reinforcing Aura together with Bennyqt according to the source.
“He was never mentioned by the analysts of MPL [who are trying to guess the additions], hindi siya mahula-hulaan. I think underrated kasi talaga yung bata kaya hindi siya na-mention,” the source from the sports media said.
The organization has yet to confirm the two players that will be joining them in their quest in the ONE Esports: MPL Invitational to that will tip-off on November 27.
