We are at the 2nd round of the knockout stage where Blacklist International faces RRQ once again! They faced off at last M3 where Blacklist International won against them and knocked them out of the tournament, but Blacklist is facing hardships this time as RRQ beat them in IESF last year. The current of Blacklist against Indonesian teams are 0-6, will they finally break this curse this knockout stage or will the Kings of RRQ prevail as they beat again?

The draft of the games compromised of Blacklist using their iconic Ube Strat as they picked estes two games in a row and sustain heroes for Wise and Edward, while RRQ used Albert's signature assassin heroes and Skylar for his hyper carry marksmen for every game they played.

RRQ managed to get the first blood on the queen and manages to get kills all around the map but the gold lead is still in Blacklist's favor as Wise was able to outretri, Albert 3x in a row in the turtle fight. BLCK was able to get the first lord and was able to push turrets but proved to be hard as Albert and R7 was able to push the side lanes to provide space for RRQ managing to force blacklist to defend and outposition themselves to gain the upperhand and kill Oheb and Hadji, finally beating Blacklist and taking Game #1.


Same pick as the last game for Game 2 for BLCK as they picked the Estes, Fredrinn, Gloo, Pharsa, and Brody again to try the UBE STRAT once again. This time they banned the fanny as well as they joy to limit the segway potential of RRQ and it proved effective as they ended the game early as RRQ had no answer for their ube strategy as Albert can't burst down their heroes and Skylar was not able to melt down the members of BLCK as they have too many sustain heroes; for karrie is a single target DPS hero. 

Game #3 and an amazing rotation coming out of OhmyV33nus as he went all around the map securing the kills for Blacklist International with Hadji providing the space necessary for Oheb to snowball into the late game and Wise delaying the fanny as he secures all the turtles and leaving out one little monster in the blue buff to deny fanny of the blue buff in the duration of the game making it hard for Albert to split push as he did in the first game of the series. RRQ was able to turn things around though because of the sets of khufra and R7 stea;ing the lord from Wise but to no avail as Blacklist was able to kill all the members of RRQ and finally finishing the game.


Albert's ling is once again proven to be deadly as he has able to quickly farm and get kills all around the map with the help of all the members of RRQ, especially Kaja. With Wise being aldous he just farmed and let Albert take all the turtles which put RRQ in advantage with the gold. Edward though managed to get a 3 man stun on his petrify making it the start of their comeback but it ended short as Vynn was able to use the divine judgement on Oheb making him pay for his life and RRQ was able to kill the rest of the members of Blacklist except Edward; forcing him to defend the base alone and conceding the victory to RRQ.


The game started off with Vynn pulling wise with the divine's judgement two times in a row to secure the turtle but at the 3rd time wise survived with his sustain alongside OhMyV33nus' estes. RRQ got the early lead because of those turtles but they made it hard for Albert to get his purple buff by not killing their own creep in the blue buff while they invade Albert's jungle and this made it easier for BLCK to get the lord but at the last team fight the Blacklist International unfortunately got knocked up by the lord, allowing Albert to steal it. BLCK though has a different plan as they pushed down the middle lane knowing that they have their minions up top and finally finished the game in the top side after Hadji zoned the members of RRQ and Oheb tower locking the base.
