The M3 world champion coach answered 12 questions about Blacklist International, his players, and the league in general in the vlog.

In one of the questions, he was asked which team he thinks will win this season. BON CHAN paused for a moment, and eventually gave his answer.

“Based on our scrims, RSG PH will be the champion this season,” the coach stated.

RSG PH, led by veteran coach Brian “Panda” Lim, finished first in the regular standing with an 11-3 win-lose record, winning 23 out of 32 games in total. The team is led by Dylan “Light” Catipon, who recently earned the most valuable player award in the regular season.

There were also numerous topics discussed in the vlog, such as whether the V33Wise duo of Johnmar “OhMyV33nus” Villaluna and Danerie “Wise” Del Rosario will be back next season.

“I am also not sure,” he said. “Let’s just wait for their decision soon.”

He also said that if there’s one team who he’d like to coach this season aside from Blacklist International, it would be TNC.

“They have no star players in their roster, but each and everyone shined in their respective roles.” BON CHAN stated.
