A new powerhouse team has emerged in Wild Rift.
Philippine-based entertainment agency Tier One Entertainment has teamed up with world-renowned esports organization G2 Esports to form G2 Blacklist.
Blacklist International, the esports arm of Tier One Entertainment, will be competing alongside the Berlin-based esports organization for their first venture into the growing competitive scene of Riot Games’ mobile MOBA title.
“We’re combining the best of the East and the West to take a new Esports competition by storm,” wrote G2 Esports CEO Alban Dechelotte in a press release. “As two major winning organizations, the G2 and Blacklist partnership is one that was created with big ambitions.”
Blacklist International CEO Tryke Gutierrez said the partnership is a game-changer.
“Alongside G2, we’re looking forward to bringing the Blacklist International brand to new audiences around the world,” he wrote.
The official roster comprises Karl Ken “Karlll” Bautista, Jairus Allain “Jace” Elgera, Jhon Mike “Xyliath” Tungol, Richard “Demon” Lara, Beaver-ed “Orthros” Villanueva, and Allen Dean “Don” Viola.
Blacklist made a splash in the Southeast Asian esports scene with its three-time regional and world champion MLBB team, and Call of Duty Mobile. G2 Esports, on the other hand, has championship-caliber teams in League of Legends, CS: GO, and many more.
The new roster will be debuting in the Phase 2 Qualifiers of the Wild Rift League Asia on February 17.
