The Omega Esports squad captain was clearly in tears after RSG PH defeated the Kings of the SEA in the MSC lower bracket finals with a last-second victory. Patrick “E2MAX” Caidic was unable to leave his seat at the podium and was forced to just collapse sobbing on the team’s desk while burying his face in his arms.
Dylan “Light” Catipon, Dexter “Exort” Martinez, Coach Karl “Giee” Barrientos, and eventually the entire RSG PH team ran up to E2MAX to embrace him in a true display of sportsmanship. The question that begs an answer is what his weeping opponent at that precise moment heard from Jonard Cedrix “Demonkite” Caranto.
“Sabi ko, Titomax, bawi, kasi alam naman natin kung gaano nila ka-gusto mag-champion uli sa MSC,” he told host Mara Aquino at the close of the hard-fought match. [“I said, Titomax, let’s recover from this, because we know how much they want to be champion again in the MSC,” he told host Mara Aquino at the close of the hard-fought match.]
“Marami pa namang chance.” [ “There are still many chances.” ]
Light also addressed Omega Esports in his remarks to the media. “Sinabi namin na maganda yung laban, good game. Sobrang solid nang ipinakita nila. Nag sorry din kami na hindi kami umabot sa grand final. Then sinabi rin namin na babawian namin ang RRQ para sa kanila,” said the Raiders’ roamer. [“We said the match was good, good game. It was so solid when they showed up. We also said sorry for not reaching the grand final. Then we also said we would defeat RRQ for them, “said the Raiders’ roamer.]
“We’re kinda sad that we had to do it in the lower bracket finals. When I looked at E2MAX he really wanted to defend the title.”
Demonkite is preparing for the game tomorrow and the chance to get back at RRQ Hoshi in the meanwhile. He is especially looking forward to rematching with Schevenko “Skylar” David Tendean. “Yung game style niya, parang winawasak niya posisyon ng team names.” [“His game style, it’s like he’s destroying our team’s position.”]
