Passion and dedication

Blacklist International PUBG team captain JD “Alas” Peregrino showed all that and more in the PUBG Mobile Binance Battle of Asia Philippine Qualifier finals last Saturday. 

After finishing the fourth day of the tournament on a high, Peregrino was all geared up for the team’s finals showing. Unfortunately, though, he woke up to the news that almost put their hard-fought campaign in jeopardy.

The city of Lipa, Batangas experienced a city-wide blackout. This is a huge blow for a mobile gamer who needs a strong internet connection for better performance.

Hell-bent on finishing their campaign, Peregrino rushed to the nearest mall to settle there for the entirety of the tournament. However, another obstacle impeded his quest once more.

“Hindi ko expected na apektado ‘yun signal sa bahay, kaya napapunta kami ni ilongs sa SM para maglaro kasi sure may kuryente dun pero hindi stable yun ping sa loob ng mall kaya nagtiyaga nalang kami sa labas,” Peregrino wrote in a Facebook post.

With the connection inside the mall fluctuating, Peregrina decided to go outside the bus terminal and finish his campaign there. Despite the scorching heat of the sun and the tumultuous sound of vehicles passing by, Peregrino was able to fulfill his promise to the team and finish all ten rounds.

He stayed outside for almost nine hours. And though Blacklist International fell short of qualifying to the Asia Finals, Peregrina won the hearts of his team and supporters — a priceless feat achieved by doing what he loves the most.

Peregrina then sent out a heartfelt to all the gamers out there faced with an influx of obstacles.

“Ang punto ko lang dito walang excuse kapag gusto mo talaga yung ginagawa mo. Hindi laging madali at masarap ang buhay na inaakala ng lahat,” said Peregrina.

“Pero patuloy pa din tayong lalaban, ganun talaga may time na madadapa ka, at madadapa ka pa din sa susunod pero hindi ako mawawalan ng pag asa para lumaban ulit. Para na din sa mga taong naniniwala sa akin at sa amin ng team ko. Alam ko mahuhuli ulit namin yun kiliti ng team at babalik ulit ng mas handa.”
