Blacklist International Forms A New SEA Dota 2 Superteam

A new SEA Dota 2 superteam is born
by Tit Krajnik on November 24, 2022   

Southeast Asian esports organization Blacklist International unveiled its new Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) roster on Thursday, November 24. By acquiring some of the top talents from the region, many billed Blacklist International's lineup as the next superteam as the organization looks to make a splash in its debut season in the Dota 2 esports scene.


Blacklist International unveiled its new Dota 2 lineup, consisting of Nico "eyyou" Barcelon, Karl "Karl" Baldovino, Carlo "Kuku" Palad, Marc "Raven" Fausto, and Timothy "TIMS" Randrup. The roster includes some of the region's most sought-after Dota 2 players, all with successful seasons behind them.

Raven joined Blacklist International as one of the longest-serving members of Fnatic, with who he won DPC SEA 2021/2022 Tour 2: Division I, placed second in DPC SEA 2021/2022 Tour 1: Division I, and finished 13th-16th at The International 2022. Joining the experienced carry are former T1 players Kuku and Karl, who left the Korean esports organization in August after T1 disbanded its Dota 2 division.

Rounding up the new roster are eyyou, and TIMS, who have both had fairly successful seasons in 2022. TIMS, formerly of BOOM Esports, helped his team produce one of the most memorable performances at TI in the history of SEA, finishing the tournament in ninth-12th place.

Despite failing to reach the top, BOOM Esports claimed several big scalps, including Team Spirit and Evil Geniuses. On the other side, his new teammate, eyyou, joins Blacklist International from Polaris Esports, with whom he recently won Asia Pacific Predator League 2022.

Although eyyou has competed chiefly in lesser events in 2022, he is an experienced Dota 2 player, formerly of TNC Predator, Team Secret, and Fnatic. Moreover, he has experience as both coach and a player, having led TNC Predator in 2018, when he helped the team place fourth at Dota 2 Asia Championships 2018.

Blacklist International was quick to complete its lineup, which certainly helped the organization acquire some of the top SEA Dota 2 talents. Whether the all-Filipino squad will perform as well as it's expected of them remains to be seen, but we won't have to wait for too long to see them in action.

The 2023 DPC season kicks off on December 11 with the open qualifiers for the Winter Tour, while the league starts on January 9 and January 30 for Division I and Division II, respectively.
