Blacklist Ultimate, which kept its lineup that finished third in the Garena Qualifiers, will be battling it out against top teams from India, Japan, Singapore, Indonesia and China to get the lion’s share of the $1 million prize pool.

John “JaBen” Benedict Julio, Edgar Martin “Tin” Yap Motoz, Neil Isaac “F1ex” Perez, Averson “Skred” Salaya, Kenn “Kensh1” Ortiz and Abraham Jose “Eiji” Agbing will be donning the country’s colors in Group A.

They will open their campaign against South Asia and Middle East representatives Team Vitality and True Rippers Esports. Blacklist Ultimate will take on fellow Southeast Asian squad and Garena titlist ALMGHTY next, before rounding up the eliminations with matches against FunPlus Phoenix from China and SCARZ from Japan.

All games in the group stage will be in a best-of-five. Blacklist will need to finish in the top two spot of its group to advance to the quarterfinals on Dec. 12.

Blacklist will try to replicate what its compatriots did with Tribe Gaming which reigned in the CODM: Worlds West Finals. Tribe’s title run was led by Filipino player and tournament MVP Kent “Banned” Nerves and head coach Carl “Image” Butalid.
