MANILA – Blacklist International debuts on the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League Philippines Season 5 with a 2-0 quick work of STI on the second day of the regular season.
Riddler and company finished their opponents in less than 10 minutes, with the rookie’s Karrie dealing a 9/0/6 KDA with 11.4 thousand net worth.
Yuji’s Pharsa scored the only two kills for STI as they were manhandled by the former EVOS PH despite fielding two tanks in Khufra and Baxia.
STI opted for a more offensive, late-game lineup with two mages and two marksmen, while Blacklist International drafted a durable lineup with Ling and Natalya for melee purposes.
The Olympians started strong in the early game, but Aqua’s Ling and the rest of Blacklist catched and eventually grabbed the lead in the mid-game both in kills and net worth.
Blacklist International eventually sealed the series after they capitalize on STI’s mid-lane clash with the sanctuary lord and pushing through their bases.
Aqua’s Ling led the winners in the second match as he registered 11 kills and an assist for Blacklist.
