Blacklist International will field its original five for the upcoming SIBOL World Esports Championship qualifiers, the organization announced on Thursday evening.
Edward “Edward” Dapadap and Kiel “OHEB” Soriano, who both missed the 31st Southeast Asian Games in Vietnam due to age limit, will join Salic “Hadji” Imam, Johnmar “OhMyV33NUS” Villaluna, and Danerie “Wise” Del Rosario.
This core has won two consecutive MPL Philippines titles in Seasons Seven and Eight and the M3 World Championship.
The Tier One-backed squad is one of the direct invitees in the combine along with MPL Philippines Season 10 and MSC 2022 champion RSG PH and Omega Esports.
Hadji, OhMyV33NUS, and Wise are coming off a gold medal finish in the SEA Games after beating star-studded Indonesia in the grand finals.
The team, though, has yet to announce its reserves for the showcase.
