RSG Philippines (PH) has parted ways with its veteran EXP Laner Kenneth “Kenji” Villa. The pro player was a part of the original squad when it debuted back in the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League (MPL) Philippines (PH) Season 8. However, the pro player rarely played as he served as a substitute player for Nathanael “Nathzz” Estrologo, RSG PH’s main EXP Laner. Kenji is known to have a few championship titles in his name like the 2019 Southeast Asia (SEA) Games and an MPL PH Season 9 championship title. RSG PH is yet to officially reveal its roster for the upcoming MPL PH Season 11.
