Blacklist International will not only be fighting for themselves when they take on Onic Philippines in the Grand Finals of the Mobile Legends Bang Bang: M3 World Championship but also for the recovery of the provinces struck by Typhoon Odette.

The Tier One co-founder and Blacklist International co-owner Tryke “TryQ” Gutierrez took to the social media to call for help for the provinces in Central and EasternVisayas which was ravaged by Typhoon Odette over the week.

“A lot has informed me that the situation needs more awareness as not a lot of people know of the gravity of the effects of typhoon Odette yet. Some areas have no electricity and water. Airports and ports are not functioning. Our fellow countrymen need help,” said the Tier One executive in a post in his official Facebook page.

According to Tryke, some fans still try to get updates on the ongoing run of Blacklist in M3 to the extent of going on top of the hill just to get phone signal. Tryke was touched by the continuous support from the fans despite their situation after typhoon.

“For Tier One and Blacklist, we have already announced yesterday that we will be spending a portion of our winnings in M3, win or lose, for food and other donations. We are currently working with our streamers and staff to help get our donations to the areas that need help the most,” he added.

Blacklist is already assured of an estimate of P6 million prize after making it to the Grand Finals and can still go up to P15 million if they win the M3 crown.

Tryke also asked streamers to extend help even by just using their respective platforms to spread awareness of what the victims of the typhoon are going through right now.
