Wise's Assessment of Owl and Yue in Blacklist International's Match against ONIC Esports
During a post-match press conference, Wise shared his insights on Blacklist International's recent encounter with ONIC Esports. According to him, he firmly believes that Lee "Owl" Gonzales and Kenneth "Yue" Tadeo, the team's young talents, possess immense untapped potential.
“At first, I felt that they were nervous and they weren't playing their usual plays,” said Wise.
He further explained that by the time both players regained their composure and started performing confidently against ONIC Esports, it was already too late, as the team had already found itself on the losing side.
“I think it was already too late when they got their confidence. There were opportunities where we could have won but they haven’t shown their best potential,” he said.
Wise reflected that “I felt sad because I know they are strong but they just couldn’t show their 100% potential and when they did, it was already too late.”
Although Blacklist International faced defeat against ONIC Esports in the grand finals of the MSC 2023, the team remains resolute in honing its lineup and gearing up for upcoming tournaments, with a particular focus on the forthcoming Mobile Legends Professional League Philippine Season 12.
