May 4, 2023 Robert Andaya 362 views

BLACKLIST International opened its MPL Philippines Season 11 campaign in style, posting a 3-0 sweep of Smart Omega at the SMX Convention Center.

Banking on a surprise Lancelot pick for Danerie James “Wise” Del Rosario, and three dominant games, Blacklist advanced into the next round where they will face top seed Bren Esports.

Kenneth Carl “Yue” Tadeo erupted in Game 3 with 11 kills and no deaths as Blacklist dismantled Omega in Game 3.

Johnmar “Oh MyV33nus” Villaluna led the way with 18 kills for a 90 percent kill participation rate.

It was the same story for Blacklist in the succeeding games.

Despite losing a signature pick in Diggie to a week-long ban due to a bug, Blacklist came through.

The defending MPL champions also secured a twice-to-beat incentive in the process.

Edward led Blacklist in Games 1 and 2 with Joy having a 2/0/5 KDA and Arlott with a 3/2/8 KDA.
