Blacklist faces ONIC without power duo OhMyV33nus and Wise Del Rosario

PHILIPPINES – The first week of Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Season 9 finally commences this Friday (18 February) with Blacklist International and ONIC PH being the first teams to open the battlefield and showcase #LakasNgPinas.

Considering their stellar performance as finalists during the M3 World Championships, this battle is unarguably one of the most awaited fights of the season.

The absence of power duo Johnmar “OhMyV33nus” Villaluna and Danerie “Wise” Del Rosario is a huge loss for Blacklist International.

Can Kent Xavier “Kevier” Lopez take the reins for the legendary team this season? Will he be able to call the right shots and cement their outstanding status?

On the other hand, ONIC PH has proven that they are a strong contender, surprising everyone by going undefeated in the upper bracket during the M3 World Championships, only to be overthrown by Blacklist International in the end.

With a total of four 2nd place finishes under their belt, will they finally secure a win, with seasoned world-class captain Allen Jedric “Baloyskie” Baloy leading the pack?
