In this article, we are going to learn how to counter Joy. The newest assassin in Mobile Legends: Bang Bang is Joy, the Flash of Miracle. She is swift and can easily dash across the battlefield several times, much like Wanwan. Her talent set has a special catch....

Two-time Mobile Legends world champion Karl “KarlTzy” Nepomuceno of ECHO was at once the best Filipino assassin player in the MLBB league. Now, in their legendary M4 run, he played as the team’s Tank-Jungler.

This kind of pressure is nothing new for a seasoned player. During the M2 World Championship, he was with Bren Esports and helped the Filipino team win the region’s first world championship.

He was also the only player in the tournament to secure a Savage with his iconic Lancelot choice. He made such an impression that he was named M2 World Championship MVP following the exciting 4-3 triumph over Burmese Ghouls in the grand final.

And now, at the M4 World Championship KarlTzy’s playstyle becomes radically different.

The 18-year-old, regarded as one of the top assassin players in the competitive circuit, has recently changed to utility jungle.

He used Fredrinn three times in four games in their upper bracket semifinal encounter against the three-time MPL ID champion. He had a total of 0/5/27 KDA in games one and two. Despite not scoring any kills, he was in charge of tanking the majority of the damage and setting up team fights.

He got his first kill in the fourth game and concluded with a good 2/2/19 KDA.

With KarlTzy now playing frontline heroes, gold laner Benedict “Bennyqt” Gonzales and midlaner Alston “Sanji” Pabico may rack up kills and earn group and knockout stage match MVP awards.

In the grand finals, they would sweep the defending champions Blacklist International 4-0. KarlTzy played a phenomenal Fredrinn on games 3 and 4, securing the win for ECHO and earning his 2nd world championship award.

Even though he was not the main focus of the spotlight during their championship run, he was able to shine through because of his great game knowledge.

“I think we’re the best team,” he said during the post-match press conference. “I’m a team player right now so I don’t care about stats or the MVP [award]. I’ve been there.”

Having won multiple awards, trophies, and MVP recognition, there are only a handful of things that motivates the veteran jungler right now.

“My only motivation is to win the championship for my team, and for the prize money,” he said.
