MANILA, PHILIPPINES -- If there’s a group of people who know what it takes to be a winner, it’s Blacklist International. Currently reigning as the MLBB M3 World Champions and recently bagging the gold for the Philippines at SEA Games, team members Edward, Eson, Hadji, Oheb, OhMyV33nus and Wise share that the recipe for success comes with not just a dedication to their field, but also a balance between their lives inside and outside of gaming.
“Maintaining a work-life balance helps reduce stress and helps prevent burnout in the workplace,” shares OhMyV33nus. “Being in a competitive environment such as esports, it is important to balance life and work especially if there’s a tournament.” The other players agree that balancing work and play is essential to staying on top of their game. “It helps me focus and accomplish more,” Eson shares, while Oheb adds, “It pushes me to reach my dreams in my personal and work life at the same time.”
For professional mobile gamers like Blacklist International, a powerful smartphone is key to keep winning on and off screen - and it doesn’t need to break the bank either. The team swears by OPPO’s A Series, highlighting the OPPO A96, one of the latest gadgets to be unveiled by the global smart device brand, as a perfect balance of efficiency, power and price.
Featuring a beautiful 6.59-inch HD display with a remarkable 90.8% screen-to-body ratio, something players Edward and Oheb particularly love, the A96 enhances your viewing and gaming experience. Thanks to a 90Hz refresh rate and 180 Hz touch sampling rate, players Eson, Hadji and Wise, who love to stream anime and catch up on the latest films outside of gaming, are immersed in the fictional world of their favorite characters whenever they go on a TV or movie marathon.
One thing the players all agree on - the first thing they look for in a smartphone is the RAM, which allows them to play endlessly, lag-free. “I always love playing different games from low to high graphics, so it’s important to have a high RAM smartphone,” shares OhMyV33nus. The OPPO A96 even comes with a unique RAM expansion feature, which helps alleviate performance bottlenecks for memory-limited devices.
Apart from these tried and tested features, OPPO A96 is also packed with a 5000mAh battery and OPPO’s own 33W SuperVOOC charging technology, so you’re powered all day as you work and play. Powered by Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 680, OPPO A96 delivers a smooth user experience, even while multitasking.
Available in Starry Black and Pearl Pink, thanks to OPPO’s signature Glow Design, the OPPO A96 is not only stunning to look at, but also practical as it’s resistant to fingerprint smudges and dirt.
The best part - the A96 doesn’t break the bank! Retailing at Php15,999 via OPPO Brand Stores, partner dealers and e-commerce sites like Shopee and Lazada, gamers and productivity hackers can take home a smartphone that’s designed to power their lives, just like Blacklist International.
