Blacklist International received a major boost as it acquired the dynamic duo of Johnmar “Ohmyv33nus” Villaluna and Danerie James “Wise” Del Rosario while Onic PH got Kairi “FULLCLIP” Rayosdelsol in an apparent trade ahead of the next MPL season.
“It’s official. Like legit. MPL’s power duo V33Wise is now part of the Blacklist International roster,” the team said in a Facebook post on Friday.
“Ohmyv33nnus and Wise wanted to join us because they believe in what Blacklist International can do as an esports organization. Similarly, we believe that they can take our pro team to the next level,” it added.
Support/tank Ohmyv33nus and carry Wise played a massive role in Onic’s back-to-back runner-up finishes against Aura PH (formerly Sunsparks) in MPL-Philippines Season 4 and 5.
With the addition of the feared duo, Blacklist is looking to improve its quarterfinal finish in Season 6.
The team has yet to announce who the two will replace on its roster, which is composed of veteran Jayson “ESON” Gerardo, Edward “EDWARD” Dapadap, Arvie “AQUA” Antonio”, Archie “KIL LER” Valencia and Dexter “DEX STAR” Alaba.
Meanwhile, a few hours after revealing Marky “Markyyy” Capacio as its new player, Onic unveiled child prodigy FULLCLIP as its third acquisition during the offseason.
“Nandito na ang child prodigy ng MPL S6. Suportahan natin ang bagong bunso ng team, si Kairi!” the team posted on Facebook.
FULLCLIP, known for his mastery of Lancelot, was instrumental in Blacklist’s playoff finish during his rookie season.
The young star joined former Execration carry Jaylord “Hate” Gonzales and Markyyy as the two-time runner-up’s newest additions.
Onic still has sidelaners Gerald “Dlar” Trinchera and Christian “Iy4knu” Manaog, support/tank Jason “Jay” Torculas and sixth man Peter Bryce “Basic” Lozano, as of writing time.
