OhMyV33nus plays Estes four times in five games against RRQ Hoshi as Blacklist International advances to the upper bracket finals of the Mobile Legends M4 World Championship

JAKARTA, Indonesia – Allowing Blacklist International star Johnmar “OhMyV33nus” Villaluna to use her signature hero Estes doomed RRQ Hoshi.

At least that is what OhMyV33nus believes as Blacklist advanced to the upper bracket finals of the Mobile Legends M4 World Championship following a nail-biting 3-2 win over the Indonesian squad on Wednesday, January 12.

“We were shocked that they did not ban Estes throughout the [series] and I think it was one of the reasons they lost,” said OhMyV33nus.

OhMyV33nus played Estes four times in the best-of-five affair, including their Game 5 win where she tallied 1 kill and a game-high 9 assists against 2 deaths.

The healing provided by OhMyV33nus’ Estes paved the way for Blacklist to finish the decider in 24 minutes despite RRQ stealing the final Lord.

Blacklist has been thriving in M4 as OhMyV33nus continues to get her hands on Estes, with the team winning four of seven games so far with the hero on its lineup for a success rate of 57%.

OhMyV33nus popularized Estes as a viable support hero in the Mobile Legends Professional League Philippines and brought it out on the world stage when Blacklist ruled M3 a year ago.

As a perk of winning the world championship, Blacklist got its own in-game skin featuring its colors and logo and the team fittingly selected Estes as the hero of choice.

Blacklist seeks to complete a return trip to the grand finals as it battles the winner between fellow Filipino squad Echo and reigning Indonesian champion Onic Esports in the upper bracket finals on Friday, January 13. – Rappler.com
