When Blacklist International won the M3 World Championship in December 2021, gold laner Kiel “OHEB” Soriano said in a post-grand final interview that Estes deserved the championship skin. After all, the support hero was a main component of the UBE strategy.

Fans agreed, and perpetuating the viral #WeWantEstes hashtag after Johnmar “OhMyV33nus” Villaluna revealed that Moonton wasn’t too keen on giving the hero the M3 exclusive skin.

After seven months, fans now have an idea of what the highly-anticipated world championship skin looks like. Several pages recently leaked the unfinished splash art of Blacklist Sentinel Estes, the upcoming M3 World Championship of Blacklist International.

Youtuber Hero-Pofa first leaked the unfinished splash art on his channel, showing the support hero clad in white, black, and gold. Estes’ appearance also had a few changes, with the hero now sporting longer, wavy orange hair.

Blacklist International’s logo is pictured on the front, and the word BLCK is featured on the lower right of the outfit, the shortened organization name that appeared in their M3 jerseys.

Blacklist Sentinel Estes is the third M-series championship skin. The first was EVOS Legends Harith from the M1 World Championship, and the second, Bren Esports Lancelot from the M2 World Championship.

Blacklist International’s iconic duo immediately reacted to the leak in their livestream. According to OhMyV33nus, he has reservations about the skin.

“It would have been better if instead of gold as the dominant color. It should have been diamond,” he said. “It was actually suggested by Boss Tryke (CEO) that it should have been diamond instead of gold so that it will fit the black and white aesthetic.”

“If the skill effects are gold, oh my god,I won’t like the skin so much,” the back-to-back MPL PH champion roamer said.

Jungler Danerie James “Wise” Del Rosario also had reservations but had a theory as to why the skin had a lot of gold colors. “Blacklist for gold,” he quipped. “We always win gold medals, that’s why the colors fit us.”

Moonton has yet to announce the official release date of the skin.
