Blacklist International is keen on keeping the code alive in Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League Philippines Season 8 (MPL PH S8), for they’ve acquired a star player from Omega Esports.

After numerous vacation pictures of him with the MPL PH S7 champions in Boracay surfaced two weeks ago, the organization finally confirmed the news — Salic “HAD JI” Imam is the newest Blacklist agent for MPL PH Season 8.
