Blacklist International will compete in the upcoming Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League Philippines Season 12 without their dynamic duo.

Johnmar “OhmyV33nus” Villaluna and Danerie James “Wise” Del Rosario will not participate in the upcoming season, the organization announced on Facebook yesterday evening.

This comes after Blacklist International unveiled its roster for MPL PH Season 12 and MDL Season 2.

Blacklist assured that the duo is still part of the team and will return next season.

“Though this was not an easy decision for them to make, we believe this is what’s best for them as players and individuals,” they wrote.

“They have the full support of their Blacklist International and Tier One Entertainment family, both in-game and out.”

The duo has taken a break before, having previously opted for a one-season hiatus in Season 9 following their M3 World Championship win.

For the upcoming season, Coach Kristoffer “BON CHAN” Ricaplaza and Salic “HADJI” Imam are returning after a season-long break. Kiel “OHEB” Soriano, who played in the first MDL season and was part of the M3 championship team, is also part of the lineup.

Former ONIC PH player Stephen “Sensui” Castillo will be taking on the jungle position.

This season is crucial for all teams as the grand finalists will secure a spot in the M5 World Championship, set to be held in the Philippines later this year.
