Blacklist Rivalry will be bringing in a veteran player in its last-ditch attempt to qualify to The International.
On Wednesday night, co-owner Tryke Guttierez announced that the organization has signed offlaner Damien “kpii” Chok for the Dota Pro Circuit Southeast Asia 2023 Tour 3: Division I.
Kpii’s arrival meant that Carlo “Kuku” Palad will slide down the position five for the team’s upcoming campaign.
“This next DPC season is about learning from the past.. Welcome to Blacklist.Rivalry Kpii,” Tryke posted on his Facebook page.

Blacklist Rivalry struggled in the past two tours, missing both the Lima Major and the ongoing ESL One Berlin Major.
Determined to rectify their shortcomings, the team decided to make changes within their roster, parting ways with Nico “eyyou” Barcelon after the second tour.
The addition of kpii not only bolsters their skill set but also injects a fresh perspective into the team, providing renewed hope for future success.
