Blacklist Rivalry team captain Carlo “Kuku” Palad is looking forward to facing the top European teams in the upcoming Bali Major.
The Tier One-backed squad qualified for their first major this year after finishing second in the Dota Pro Circuit Southeast Asia 2023 Tour 3: Division I.
Kuku admitted that the level of competition between SEA and Europe are far which is why he is looking forward to facing up against top-flight Dota 2 teams in their first taste of Major action in the 2023 DPC season.
“I think I just want to fight the European team because the level of competition is so far I think. I like those competitions,” said Kuku.

The Filipino veteran also bared that the team is eyeing at least a top six finish in Bali.
“ I am thinking we need to at least do top six or top eight or top four or Champion.”
Blacklist Rivalry missed the first two majors after the year after shaky performances in the first and second tours of the year.
The team then added Damien “kpii” Chok to the lineup and moved Kuku to support which proved to have paid dividends for Blacklist Rivalry as they finished the tour with a 5-2 record.
