Blacklist International punched its ticket to the ONE Esports Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League Invitational grand finals after taking down RRQ Hoshi, 2-1, in the semifinals, Sunday afternoon.
With Edward “Edward” Dapadapa (Esmeralda) and Salic “Hadji” Imam (Chou) down in the final moments of the all-important Game Three, the three-man wrecking crew of Danerie “Wise” Del Rosario (Bane), Kiel “OHEB” Soriano (Clint), and Johnmar “OhMyV33NUS” Villaluna (Rafaela) pulled off the game-winning play against four RRQ Hoshi members.
The troika sneaked into the Lord pit and went on to take the Luminous Lord. Then, after securing the objective, they took out the last four members to complete a five-man wipe en route to the finals berth.
OHEB tallied nine kills and four assists across his name while Wise had six kills, three deaths, and six assists in the Game Three win.
