ECHO’s Tristan “Yawi” Cabrera said that the skin looks “great and extraordinary” while Karl “Karltzy” Gabriel said it “screams sheeshable in every way.”

ECHO were the surprise of the 2022 season

The World Championships are the official year-end esports tournament for MLBB where the best of the best compete for the winning title. Moonton's tradition is for the winning team to select a hero and collaborate with the developer to design an in-game skin. Including ECHO's skin, the following heroes have received skins:

  • Harith “EVOS Legends” (M1 World Championship)
  • Lancelot “Bren Esports” (M2 World Championship)
  • Estes “Blacklist International” (M3 World Championship)

At the beginning of the 2022 season, no one expected ECHO to earn the M4 Champion skin. The team had been a decent performer nationally, but never impressed internationally before this. With a revamped roster for the year, however, consisting of some academy pros and scouted talent, ECHO showed they meant business from the first match itself. They went into the M4 World Championship as the second seed from the Philippines before cruising through the competition.

After a comfortable run in the upper bracket during the playoffs, ECHO faced the defending world champion and home rivals Blacklist International in the finals. The memories of a defeat to Blacklist only three months prior were still fresh, but this time around, it was ECHO that emerged as the superior team. The players secured a 4-0 victory in the grand finals.

In the post-match press conference, ECHO immediately confirmed that they wanted Chou to represent their CM4 Champion skin.
