Opening the academy, Blacklist International is ready to start a new chapter in the competitive MLBB PH scene.

There is no need to doubt the quality of Blacklist International as one of the champions in the competitive MLBB scene, both in the Philippines and even the world scene.

Since entering the competitive MLBB PH scene, Blacklist International has now become an unexpected powerhouse. Containing the best Filipino players, the team under Tier One Entertainment can be said to be the most successful team in the current MLBB scene.

Some Blacklist International icons like OHMYV33NUS and Wise, or Hadji or their trainer BON CHAN, are all legendary figures.
