Blacklist International will have new reinforcements in their Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League Philippines Season 11 (MPL PH Season 11) campaign starting February 17.
Former Nexplay EVOS superstar Renejay “Renejay” Barcase, and rookies Jon Redick “Super Red” Bordeos, Kenneth Carl “Yue” Tadeo, and Archer “Archer” Perez will play for the defending champions this season, the organization announced on Facebook.
The changes come after the organization previously announced that veteran analyst Mark Jayson “Eson” Gerardo, Salic “Hadji” Imam, and head coach Kristoffer “BON CHAN” Ricaplaza will be taking a break this season.

Blacklist International will try to defend the throne at MPL PH Season 11 with their rejigged roster
The new players were announced in separate posts on Thursday evening on Blacklist’s Facebook page.
Spearheading the new roster are old-timers Johnmar “OhMyV33NUS” Villaluna, Danerie “Wise” Del Rosario, and Season 10 finals MVP Edward “EDWARD” Dapadap.
With BON CHAN gone, Aniel “MasterTheBasics” Jiandani was promoted to head coach and will be assisted by Dexter “DEX STAR” Alaba, who is now the assistant coach. Another notable change includes the absence of gold laner Kiel “OHEB” Soriano.
Rumors of Renejay joining the code breakers started last season after he was spotted at the MPL PH Season 10 grand final venue seated next to Blacklist CEO Tryke Gutierrez in the front row.
Everyone’s suspicions came to fruition as the organization announced a few months after that he would suit up for Blacklist International’s SIBOL squad at the 32nd Southeast Asian Games SIBOL qualifiers last month, where they were eliminated early after a 2-0 loss to ONIC PH.
Former MHRLK standout Kenneth Carl “Yue” Tadeo is also no stranger to Blacklist, as he was part of the SIBOL’s IESF’s 14th WE Championship roster alongside the entire Blacklist squad.
Blacklist International’s new roster will be put to the test as they face M4 world champions ECHO on the first day of the regular season on February 17, Thursday, at 4 p.m. GMT+8.
