Blacklist Rivalry: Make Philippines Dota Great Again

Share This Post

Blacklist International have finalised its Dota roster for the upcoming 2022-2023 competition, following the news of their acquisition of DPC SEA division one slot from RSG. As many had predicted, there are a number of surprises in the list.

As promised by Tryke Gutierrez, the Dota team, which is called Blacklist Rivalry, fully carries the spirit of “Filipino Pride”. Considering that the players have strong experiences in international competitions, Blacklist Rivalry will provide tough competition for any team in the DPC SEA.

Through their social media accounts, Blacklist have unveiled their Dota team lineup which consists of Kuku (post 3), Tims (post 4), Karl (post 2), eyyou (post 5), and Raven (post 1).

Blacklist Rivalry dubbed their Dota lineup as ‘redemption’, which refers to Tryke’s goal and mission to rejuvenate the great Philly in international esports after a lengthy period of obscurity in Dota major competitions.

While this will be Blacklist’s first appearance in Dota professional league, most of you may have already known the history behind these ‘new’ players, especially from their competitive years in Philippines.

In case you haven’t been paying attention for the past six years, Kuku, Raven, Tims, and Eyyou were previously playing together for TNC Predator team, which base is in Philippines. Their times at TNC, from 2016 to 2019, were hailed as one of the best in SEA. They also made themselves known as one of Asia’s biggest surprises in 2016 at The International 6.

Additionally, Karl was also a member of Team Admiral, which then known as Team Amplfy, which was owned by Tryke in 2018.

Given their experiences at The International and their long-standing friendships, Blacklist Rivalry is certainly  going to spice up the scene.
