Behold, Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League Philippines! One of the greatest one-two punches in the history of the sport has officially announced its return.
Johnmar “OhMyV33NUS” Villaluna and Danerie “Wise” Del Rosario, the backbone of the Blacklist International professional MLBB squad, will be making their highly-anticipated comeback in the upcoming MPL PH Season 10.
The V33Wise duo will be looking to put Blacklist once again back on the pedestal after skipping the past season – a decision mutually agreed on by both parties.
Without V33Wise, Blacklist became an entirely different team during the MPL Season 9 edition and suffered one of their worst results in the grand competition.
Blacklist only managed to win thrice during V33Wise’s absence and lost 11 times while failing to clinch a semifinal spot during the postseason.
It was a major blow for Blacklist after V33Wise led them to back-to-back championship titles during Season 7 and 8, becoming the second team to achieve such a feat.
V33Wise was also behind Blacklist’s dominant championship-clinching run at the Mobile Legends M3 World Championships where they took down co-Pinoy squad ONIC PH in the grand finals, 4-0.
Now with V33Wise back on the active roster, chief tactician Kristoffer “BON CHAN” Ricaplaza and the rest of the team are expected to have a better finish than Season 9.
Completing the Blacklist squad are Kiel “OHEB” Soriano, Edward “Edward” Dapadap, Salic “Hadji” Imam, Kevier “Kevier” Lopez, Dexter “DEX STAR” Alaba, and Mark “ESON” Gerardo.
