MANILA -- Blacklist International Ultimate was crowned champion of Season 1 of the Call of Duty Mobile Garena qualifiers after sweeping rival ALMGHTY, 3-0, in the grand finals.
It took three clean games in the Firing Range (150-64); Raid (6-3); and Standoff (150-33) for Blacklist ULT to take home the crown against an ALMIGHTY squad that had forced crunch-time in the world championship last December.
