In just its first week, MPL PH Season 10 opened up with a crispy rivalry between Kiel “OHEB’” Calvin Q. Soriano and Grant “Kelra” Duane. Both are well-known for their flashy Beatrix and PH ML fans can’t help but compare the two of them.

If you can recall, Kelra got a penalty after homophobic remarks on the V33Wise duo. And while he already apologizes, his fans remain the same.

This time, fans are comparing him to a fellow Beatrix user, OHEB. And while OHEB alone doesn’t really care about the comparison, both of their fan bases are ready to go to war.

Mara Aquino discusses the heated player comparison between the two on her official Facebook Page.

“Currently, Kelra and Oheb are considered the greatest Beatrix users. They’re both legendary snipers, catching attention at the international level. When two athletes are shining at the top, they will always get compared, especially in a very competitive industry. All eyes will be on the best players as they are expected to give a great performance and break game records.
Last night, we highlighted the greatness of these two.

During my interview, Oheb was asked if he thinks the debate of who the best sniper user is has been settled. When Kelra’s sister yelled, “1v1!” I thought it was funny and did NOT feel any malice from it. Oheb also told me, “Di naman ako nagisip ng masama dun, natawa nga ako eh. Nagulat nalang ako na binabash na sya ng mga tao. Eh wala naman akong negative na inisip, na gets joke nya, natawa din ako.”

By the way, Kelra’s sister was not the only one yelling “1v1” throughout this event and even before it started. Both sides also had their own cheers. Kung ate ko naman sya, matutuwa ako kasi kitang kita proud na proud sya sakin at todo support kahit hindi ako nanalo. She also did not mean to insult. She was being part of the energy. Madadala ka talaga sa excitement ng crowd when you watch live sa venue; it’s whole different energy and it’s electric. If I was not working at nanood kasama audience and yelled “1v1” myself or if this was done by someone else more famous, the audience would laugh and get that this is not a malicious intent.

Ibang level na yung mga naghaharass sa sister ni Kelra at nandadamay ng pamilya na hindi connected sa nangyare. They just lost their lola and they’re grieving, have some empathy and leave them alone. Stop involving their work and lives outside the game. Stop making this personal. Please watch your misplaced hatred.

The players themselves consider the game as a healthy rivalry.

It’s not the comparison of the two greatest Beatrix users that is toxic, it’s the violent and venomous reactions from the fans that is destructive.

Enjoy the game and give respect to the players and their family. Let’s support the teams and players without attacking others. Let’s have a safer and healthier environment in Esports.” 

Mara explains toxicity created by the fans, while the rivalry between players is healthy for the game, it’s the violent and venomous reactions from the fans that are destructive.

Everybody can enjoy the game, that’s the reason we all love Mobile Legends, but these kinds of toxic behavior are what prevent us from appreciating the game that we love.

Do not go in deep with these toxic fans, just watch the game and chill.
