Blacklist International brought out Danerie “Wise” Del Rosario’s Aldous in Game Four to finish off Aura PH and march to the grand finals of the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League-Philippines Season Seven, Saturday evening.
With the win, Blacklist International became the first Filipino team to qualify for the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Southeast Asia Cup this June.
Blacklist International went for the jugular in Game Four, unleashing Aldous to score a dominant 16-6 victory.
Edward “Edward” Dapadap, despite facing a hard Benedetta game, held fort early for Kiel “OHEB” Soriano’s Harith and Wise to scale up. Once the two finally reached their power spikes, it was completely over for Aura PH as they had no answer with the late-game prowess of Blacklist International.
Edward won the SMART MVP with two kills, a death, and eight assists in the 16-6 win.
Meanwhile, Aura PH was led by Benedict “Bennyqt” Gonzales’ Lapu Lapu with a 2-2-1 line while Mark “LORD HADESS” Lazaro was held to just three deaths and three assists on his Yi Sun-Shin.
The Mathilda airlines of Johnmar “OhMyV33NUS” Villaluna took flight as early as Game One, powering Blacklist International’s 20-6 dominant victory through a 5-0-12 line en route to the first SMART MVP of the series.
Wise then took the reins in Game Two, putting up six kills and three assists against just one death with his Granger to win the SMART MVP award and spearhead Blacklist International in another dominant win through a 14-7 result.
With their backs against the wall, Aura PH took a page out of Blacklist International’s book and implemented the ‘Ultimate Bonding Strategy’ in Game Three to snatch their first victory of the series.
Jaypee “Jaypee” Dela Cruz’s Rafaela was named the SMART MVP with a game-high 10 assists along with three kills in the 16-4 victory.
Blacklist International will face the winner of the lower bracket finals tomorrow in the grand finals while Aura PH will go up against the winner between the Execration-Bren Esports in the lower bracket finals on the same day.
