Blacklist’s new Dota 2 squad being dubbed the “Filipino redeem team” is spot-on. The organization has put together a group of players that has won over the Filipino Dota 2 community at various points in their careers.

While playing for TNC in 2016, Raven, Kuku, and eyyou pulled off one of the biggest upsets in Dota 2 history.

OG’s powerhouse squad was the clear favorite to win TI6, having won two Dota 2 Majors that DPC season. However, the European roster ended up falling to underdog team TNC in the second round of TI6’s lower bracket.

The former TNC trio, alongside Samson “Sam_H” Hidalgo and Jimmy “DeMoN” Ho, took a convincing 2-0 victory and eliminated OG from TI6. It was arguably the most celebrated victory by a Filipino Dota 2 squad at an international event.

(2) Karl “Karl” Baldovino

(3) Carlo “Kuku” Palad

(4) Timothy “Tims” Randrup

(5) Nico “eyyou” Barcelon

Since Blacklist acquired RSG’s spot in the DPC Southeast Asia Division I regional league, the newly formed team won’t have to compete in the open qualifiers or the lower Division II of the DPC.

Blacklist will be competing against Fnatic, BOOM Esports, Talon Esports, Team SMG, Execration, Lilgun, and the organization that will be taking over T1’s spot.
