Emotional Baloy laments the ‘what ifs’ after another loss to Blacklist

Following Blacklist International’s victory over Geek Fam in the lower bracket of the M5 World Championship knockout stage, Filipino import roamer Allen “Baloy” Baloyskie appeared filled with regret and disappointment.

And who can blame him? They were so close, yet once again, he and Mark “Markyyyyy” Capacio fell short against Blacklist on the world stage, reminiscent of their painful loss in the M3 World Championship grand finals.

In an exclusive interview with Tiebreaker Times, Baloy explained that his emotions stemmed from losing a competitive series against Blacklist despite controlling the early game throughout.

“I really expected that we could beat them.

“We were always ahead earlier. Of course, it’s more disheartening when you know that you’re resisting all the time. We were always ahead, but we always fell short. But I thought, what a waste that we couldn’t finish it,” he lamented.

The 25-year-old captain hopes this experience will help Geek Fam improve, enabling them to make another strong run in MPL Indonesia Season 13 and redeem themselves on the international stage.

“I think we just need to gain that experience. We learned from our loss. We lost due to our lack of discipline and synchronization of skills, so maybe next time we need to improve on that,” he said.

“The only positive thing here is that we gained the experience (of losing in the M-series). Only Markyyy and I had the experience on the world stage. It’s good that these guys experienced this for the first time,” he continued.

“I didn’t even qualify for the knockout stage back in M1, but in M3, I finished as the runner-up. So hopefully, for them, we’ll be able to get it next time.”
