Danerie James "Wise" Del Rosario unleashed his monstrous Aldous anew as Blacklist International battered Onic PH, 2-0, to keep its hot streak going to the Playoffs of the MPL Philippines Season 7 on Sunday, May 16.

Former Onic and now Blacklist star jungler Wise went to work with Aldous late in the closing Game 2 to power the thrilling 17-15 comeback victory in nearly 24 minutes.

Onic was ready to force a deciding game when it slayed three Blacklist heroes and got a free Luminous Lord take in the 16th minute but Wise kept his team afloat.

He then solo killed former Blacklist standout Kairi "Kairi" Rayosdelsol playing Pharsa while ex-Onic captain Jonmar "OhMyV33nus" Villaluna's Yve took down Jason "Jay" Torculas' Akai in a crucial clash in the 22nd minute, leading to a Lord for Blacklist.

Onic was able to wipe out Wise and company during their final push but Blacklist's Lord focused on demolishing the enemy Base.

Wise also shone in Game 1 with his sneaky Ling getting four kills and nine assists against a lone death to spark the 18-minute win.

Coach Kristoffer "BON CHAN" Ricaplaza's squad went for a feeding Diggie at the hands of veteran Jayson "ESON" Gerardo which enabled Wise to find pickoffs, farm his items and eventually take over the game.

The Group B top seed Blacklist scored its fifth straight win and 12th overall against a single defeat for a league-best 32 points to close out its amazing Regular Season run.

The Tier One Entertainment-back squad will take on the No. 2 seed of Group A which is either Bren Esports or Work Auster Force in the Playoffs upper bracket first round.

Onic ended its Regular Season campaign at No. 4 in Group A with 18 markers on a 7-6 slate.

Coach Kyle "Ryo" Berceño's boys will battle Group B's third seed in the lower bracket.
