After cementing their position in Mobile Legends: Bang Bang as a global esports giant, Tier One Entertainment and Blacklist International are finally expanding into Dota 2 in partnership with Predator Gaming. Blacklist Dota 2 is here and the team has some of the best Filipino talent on its roster as it vie for international recognition in the highly competitive esports landscape.
The star-studded team also includes Marc “Raven” Faust, Carl “Karl” Baldwin, Charles “chicken” Good luck, Timothy “TIMS” Randrup and Nico “Hey you” Barcelona.
“Tier One has always believed that talents in South East Asia are able to compete globally, no matter in which country. However, we chose to go for an all-Philippine team because we also believe in the value of communication in a team game like DOTA 2. The players from the Philippines have a long history of success in this game and for me I’m just excited to have the chance to see some of the best players in SEA come together under the banner of Blacklist Rivalry and compete against the best in the world. said Tier One Entertainment co-founder Tryke Gutierrez.
This inaugural Blacklist International Dota 2 team also joins the prestigious roster of Predator Gaming Ambassadors.
“We at Predator are honored to be working hand-in-hand with Tier One Entertainment and Blacklist International to help put the Philippines on the global stage. We have an extremely talented all-Filipino roster playing for Blacklist International and these players are former champions of the Asia Pacific Predator League (APAC PL). We hope that this all-star roster can also represent our country in the upcoming APAC PL 2024 which will take place in Manila. We can’t wait to see them break the code and claim another championship in front of a live audience here in the Philippines! Blacklist International is an organization that the Filipinos can stand behind and encourage together, so we are going to help them succeed in any way we can and we are committed to making that happen,” said Sue Ong-Lim, General Manager of Acer Philippines.
The ultimate goal of the team will surely be to represent the Philippines in The International, the most prestigious Dota 2 tournament in the world, in 2023. Blacklist International has officially secured the slot from Singaporean organization RSG in Division 1 of the next DPC season, which starts early. next year so fans can see them in action soon!
