AFTER A day of fan outcry, Moonton has announced that Estes will be the M3 champion skin, as requested by winning team Blacklist International.
"All your wishes have been heard. Merry Estes Everyone!" announced the MPL-PH in its social media pages. "To our beloved gamers, Estes is the chosen champion M3 skin."
It used the hashtag #WeChooseEstes — echoing the hashtag #WeWantEstes that has trended since yesterday. Over that period, when gamers clamored for the developer to grant world champions Blacklist International's choice of skin for the popular mobile game, ratings on the app on Google Play plummeted as some fans reviewed it negatively.
With the league's olive branch, many fans are now launching a campaign to restore the app's original ratings.
The statement added: "We have heard your voices, and we will proceed with Blacklist International's choice."

We know how much this means to our players and we're so happy that this is now sorted out," said Gosiengfiao, as she showed a meeting with fellow co-founder Tryke Gutierrez and several Moonton officials.
