MANILA - ONIC Philippines broke their silence with their MPL Philippines Season 13 lineup reveal Thursday night, confirming fan rumors.

The hedgehogs acquired the services of gold laner Duane "Kelra" Pillas, formerly of Smart Omega, and former TNC Pro Team's jungler King Cyric "K1NGKONG" Perez, joining Jem "Jem" Lanojan, Frince Miguel "Super Frince" Ramirez, Jomeari "Escalera" delos Santos, and David "BOSS A" Gamboa.

The roster reveal was presented with a futuristic approach complete with laser-shooting fighter jets and CGI.

This will be Kelra's third MPL team, after a one-season stint in Execration and five seasons under the Smart Omega banner, while K1NGKONG will move to his second MPL franchise.

The two will replace crucial starting roles for ONIC PH, previously occupied by Kenneth "Nets" Barro, who was already with Malaysian team HomeBois, and Dean "Raizen" Sumagui, who has yet to confirm his new team.

Two more personnel joined Kelra in relocating from the Barangay as head coach Anthony "Ynot" Senedrin and coach Patrick "E2MAX" Caidic took the gaffer roles.

They will take over from Jeffrey "Jeff" Manforte, Mark Kevin "Bluffzy" Reyes, and Hans "Wuraaaah" Solano, who departed the team late January.

ONIC PH will try to have a better Season 13 after three straight seasons ending in a first-round exit and finishing joint 5th-6th place.
