OhMyV33nus Announces Her Departure from Blacklist International: Long Live the Queen

Early in July 4, the Mobile Legend: Bang Bang (MLBB) esports scene was shocked by an announcement from Ohmyv33nus. Considered the “Queen” of the Mobile Legends in the Philippines, Johnmar “OhMyV33nus” Villaluna stunned social media by leaving Blacklist International, her current team. 

Delivered in a Facebook post at around 2 AM, the news seemed to reflect contemplation and a longing for improvement with a mix of anxiety. “Who is OHMYV33Nus without Onic?” OhmyV33nus started with a question that really spoke to both supporters and ML players. This brought back her early years, when she developed herself as a team member of the Onic PH team. “Ngayon naman same time, 2am din, same thoughts: Who is OHMYV33NUS without Blacklist?” The question then took a more emotional tone reflecting on her present circumstances with Blacklist International. 

The Facebook post dug into a deep existential conflict. V33nus asked her to identify outside of the prizes and the Blacklist International as she called it home. “Sino nga ba si OHMYV33Nus na wala yung trophies and yung esports org ng lahat?” (Who is OhMyV33nus without the esports org everyone knows?) without the trophies?) These realizations unearthed a need for something greater, “a higher version of me deep inside me. more than I have ever achieved.” 

The choice V33nus made was not out of the blue. After taking a break from the professional scene, she said, “So I left Tier One Entertainment and Blacklist International because I know I would settle if I choose to stay. When it comes to leaving, ma feel mo naman Eh.” (You can sense it at leaving time). She could really relate to this comment since her choice was guided by great intuition and this is not made out of any ill intention. 

Still, the leaving was not a rejection of the ties she created with her former team, Blacklist International. Ohmyv33nus closed her piece with a philosophical meditation on the idea of “home.” She redefined home as “where I go,” “anyone who cares about me,” and most significantly, “the name I’ve built for myself: OHMYV33NUS,” while honoring the past teams and companies that helped her nourish her ability and skills in the land of dawn. Declaring, “I’ve always got me, and I will never be afraid no matter where life would take me,” the message connected with self-reliance and a desire to build her own path. 

A Decorated Legacy 

The Blacklist International roster will surely suffer from a great void upon OhMyV33nus’s leaving. Unquestionably among the most decorated players in MLBB history, her influence on the team’s performance is evident. Arriving at Blacklist in 2021, she became a regular member and has become the captain of Blacklist International. The team was unbeatable during their time, therefore coming up with a moniker of “break the code”. 

With a lot of Mobile Legends reviews, it shows that Ohmyv33nus’ pool of heroes is unbeaten. From the sly Esmeralda to the award-winning Estes, Ohmyv33nus showed extraordinary control over a wide range of characters, hence her hero pool was legendary. Still, her mastery transcended simple technical ability. Leading Blacklist International to back-to–back MPL Philippines Seasons 7 and 8, her in-game intellect, strategic awareness, and clutch plays under duress were vital. Their success peaked at the M3 World Championship in December 2021, when they dominated the worldwide scene. 

Future of Ohmyv33nus 

The esports community is now wondering what is ohmyv33nus’s next action. Will she travel a new path with a fresh viewpoint or will she join another Mobile Legends team? Will she play a different mobile game? Her talent and experience are clearly much sought-after, and her future seems brighter than ever. 

Blacklist International: The New Chapter 

Blacklist International, on the other hand, has an enormous chore ahead. It is not easy to replace a player of Ohmyv33nus’s quality. Blacklist has a track record of finding hidden treasures and supporting undeveloped skill sets. Their future competitive position will depend much on the person they choose to cover Ohmyv33nus’ spot.
