Is this EVOS PH’s new Facebook page?

Despite the sudden re-emergence of the old EVOS PH page, we also spotted this new EVOS Esports PH Facebook page, which was created today. The page has yet to post anything other than updating its cover image, so it’s unconfirmed if it is indeed legit, but stay tuned for further updates.

The history of EVOS in the Philippines

EVOS previously participated in MPL PH Season 3 after acquiring the roster of SxC Imbalance, the fourth placer of MPL PH Season 2.

They immediately made their presence felt as they were able to reach the playoffs. However, EVOS Legends immediately announced their departure in the off-season.

Tier One Entertainment then signed the remaining players of EVOS PH, forming what is today known as one of the best teams in the Philippines – Blacklist International.

There is still no official announcement on whether they will truly return, but expect a bigger and more intense MPL PH Season 8 if it happens.
