Blacklist International star Edward “EDWARD” Dapadap revealed to members of the press that he already expected to see Nexplay Evos jungler Bien “BoyetDR” Chumacera in the MPL prior to their entry in Season 11.
“Inaasahan ko na talaga na mapupunta siya sa MPL kasi nung amateur po siya madami yung mga naging amateur championship niya. Ineexpect ko na po na makakarating sila (sa MPL),” Agent Zero on Boyet DR.
A few hours before their much-awaited match-up in the MPL, Nexplay Evos jungler Bien “BoyetDR” Chumacera posted a throwback photo of him together with Blacklist International explaners Edward “Edward” Dapadap and Renejay “RENEJAY” Barcase during their “RG boy” era.
Edward fondly recalled his time with Bien whom he met during his ranked game grinds way before he entered the professional scene.
“Dati po pag ka matataas yung star, sila yung nagkakalaban. Nakilala po namin yung isa’t isa kasi tiga Bataan lang,” shared Edward.
“Pag may tournament po na nasa mall, nagmemessage po kami para dun mag team up kami and ipanalo yung tournament. So dun po kami nagkakilala sa mga tournament sa mall.”
It was in these mall tournaments that Edward finally found his chance to the pro league when DEXSTAR approached him after his appearance in the Juicy legends tournaments.
And the rest is history.
