Predator Gaming is partnering with Southeast Asian gaming and esports entertainment leader Tier One Entertainment and esports organization Blacklist International as they finally expand to Dota 2.
With some of the best Filipino talents on its roster, all eyes are now on the star-studded team of Marc “Raven” Fausto, Karl “Karl” Baldovino, Carlo “Kuku” Palad, Timothy “TIMS” Randrup, and Nico “eyyou” Barcelo.
“Tier One has always believed that talents in South East Asia are capable of competing globally regardless of which country. However, we opted to go for a full Filipino squad because we also believe in the value of communication in a team game like Dota 2,” said Tier One Entertainment co-founder Tryke Gutierrez.
“The players from the Philippines have had a long history of success in this game and for me, I’m just excited to have the opportunity to see some of the best players in SEA assemble under the Blacklist Rivalry banner and compete against the best in the world,” he added.
This inaugural Blacklist International Dota 2 squad also joins the prestigious roster of Predator Gaming ambassadors.
“Predator Gaming is very happy to support Blacklist International. It has always been our goal to support esports from the grassroots to the professional level and we’re very honored to work with Tier One Entertainment and Blacklist International as they finally expand to Dota 2,” said Acer Philippines General Manager Sue Ong-Lim.
