After cementing their position in Mobile Legends: Bang Bang as a global eSports giant, Tier One Entertainment and Blacklist International are finally expanding to 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 vies for international acclaim in the highly competitive eSports landscape.
Marks included in the star-studded team “Raven” Fausto, Carl “Carl” Baldovino, Carlo “cuckoo” Palad, Timothy “Times” Ranrup, and Niko “I you” Barcelo.
“Tier One has always believed that talent in Southeast Asia is capable of competing globally, regardless of country. However, we opted to go for a full Filipino squad because we also believe in the value of communication in a team game like DOTA 2. Players from the Philippines have a long history of success in this sport and for me I am just excited to have the opportunity to see some of the best players in the SEA gather under the Blacklist Rivalry banner and compete against the best in the world. said Trike Gutierrez, co-founder of Tier One Entertainment.
This inaugural Blacklist International Dota 2 squad also joins the prestigious roster of Predator Gaming ambassadors.
“We are honored to work hand in hand with Tier One Entertainment and Blacklist International to help bring the Philippines to the world stage in Predator. We have an extremely talented all-Filipino roster playing for Blacklist International and these players are former champions of the Asia Pacific Predators League (APAC PL). We hope this all-star roster can represent our country in the upcoming APAC PL 2024 to be held in Manila. We look forward to seeing them break the code and live audience right here in the Philippines Can’t wait to win another championship in front of us! Blacklist International is an organization that Filipinos can stand behind and cheer on together so we are going to help them succeed any way we can and we will do so Committed to doing.
The ultimate goal of the team would of course be to represent the Philippines in 2023 at The International, the most prestigious Dota 2 tournament in the world. Blacklist International has officially secured Singaporean outfit RSG’s slot in Division 1 of the next DPC season, which begins early. Next year so fans can catch them in action very soon!
