Kairi “Kairi” Rayosdelsol has seemingly floated the idea of transferring to Blacklist International.

After leading ONIC Esports to another Mobile Professional League Indonesia title and a Mobile Legends Southeast Asia Cup championship last year, the star jungler carried the weight and hopes of Indonesian fans on his shoulders when they played at the recently concluded M5 Mobile Legends World Championship in Indonesia.

Together with his Filipino coach Paul Denver “Yeb” Miranda and teammates Muhamamd “Butss” Sanubari, “Sanz” Gilang, Calvin “CW” Winata, Nicky “Kiboy” Pontonuwu and Albert “Albert” Iskandarr, ONIC Esports looked absolutely unstoppable in the grandest stage of competitive Mobile Legends as it never lost a match in the Group Stage and the Playoffs en route to the finals.

In the end, however, ONIC Esports fell short against two-time M-Series world champion AP Bren via 3-4.

ONIC Esports fans did not take the loss lightly.

In fact, some Filipino fans, particularly those of Blacklist International who wanted ONIC Esports to avenge their team’s loss to AP Bren, joined the savage online attacks on Kairi for failing to deliver a world championship trophy to the Indonesian squad.

While fans and key figures in the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang landscape came to his defense, Kairi remained silent and posted a tease to his 1.4 million followers on Facebook.

“Vibin’ in black,” Kairi said together with pictures in a black jacket.

“Black looks good on you,” Blacklist’s official Facebook account replied.

As to be expected, the post from Kairi and the reply from Blacklist International had set social media ablaze with fans speculating that the former ONIC PH player is headed back to the Philippines to play for Blacklist.

Over at the Blacklist camp, the dynamic duo of Johnmar “OhMyV33nus” Villalluna and jungler Danerie James “Wise” del Rosario are still on an indefinite break.

With Wise’s absence, Stephen “Sensui” Castillo stepped in and meshed with the team which saw Blacklist land a second-place finish at MPL Philippines Season 12 and a third-place finish at M5 World Championship.
