Blacklist International becomes the first team to advance to the grand finals of the Mobile Legends Southeast Asia Cup with a sweep of EVOS Legends

No team in the Mobile Legends Southeast Asia Cup (MSC) has yet to crack the code of Filipino squad Blacklist International.

Blacklist became the first team to advance to the MSC grand finals after a stunning 3-0 sweep of Indonesian crew EVOS Legends in their best-of-five upper bracket finals on Saturday, June 12.

In a battle of reigning champions of their respective Mobile Legends Professional Leagues, Blacklist proved to be the superior team as it has yet to drop a game in the MSC.

Blacklist has won all of its nine games over four series.

After pushing EVOS Legends to the brink, Blacklist dealt the final blow with a swift 12-minute win in Game 3 behind star duo Danerie James “Wise” del Rosario and Johnmar “OhMyV33nus” Villaluna.

Wise chalked up 5 kills and 2 assists against 0 deaths on Granger, while OhMyV33nus tallied 2 kills and 5 assists against 1 death on Estes.

EVOS Legends secured high burst damage heroes Ling, Lunox, and Mathilda in Game 3 but Blacklist negated them with its ultra-sustain lineup built on Estes and Rafaela.

Jayson “Eson” Gerardo made his presence felt in Game 3 for Blacklist with 1 kill and 8 assists against 1 death on Rafaela.

By reaching the grand finals, Blacklist is already assured of $30,000 (around P1.4 million) of the $150,000 (around P7.1 million) prize pool.

The champion will take home $70,000 (around P3.3 million).

Meanwhile, EVOS Legends got relegated to the lower bracket finals, where it will face the winner between Filipino team Execration and Malaysian squad RSG MY for the last grand finals berth. – Rappler.com
