Wise spearheaded Blacklist International with his 1v5 Aldous gameplay
The match between the Indonesian team Bigetron Alpha and the Philippines team Blacklist International was one of the most interesting matches in the MPLI 2021. Bigetron Alpha desperately tried to counter Blacklist International’s lineup by suppressing the comfort picks of the Blacklist International captain, Jhonmar "OhMyV33nus" Villaluna, but it was to no avail.
During the first match, Bigetron Alpha could not contest the healing power of OhMyV33nus’ Estes which put them at a huge disadvantage in every team fight. The Indonesian team managed to take over the resources and get a huge boost to suppress Blacklist International but in the end, they lacked the damage to successfully win skirmishes due to the constant healing.
The second match went worse for Bigetron Alpha. The team managed to stall out the match but a huge outplay happened at the 15-minute mark. Blacklist International’s Danerie "Wise" Rosario managed to hit his power spike with his Aldous. Wise proceeded to engage in a 1v5 by catching Bigetron Alpha off guard. The surprise attack left Bigetron in shambles due to the tremendous amount of damage Wise's Aldous dealt to the whole squad.
Blacklist International was quick to capitalize on this play and immediately finished the game to secure itself a spot in the semifinals.
