THE STAGE IS SET FOR THE GROUP STAGES AS THE PHILIPPINES’ Oasis Gaming team, making their debut in the VCT APAC, is able to finally put their abilities to the test.
Unfortunately, it was a baptism of fire as ORDER, a fellow rookie and the VALORANT Oceania champions, swept Oasis 2-0 in their debut.
The performances by Michael “WRONSKI” Wronski, who is regarded as the strongest duelist in Oceania, caused the Filipino representatives to struggle throughout the series. The potential exists for the OCE VALORANT scene to blossom given how well he and his crew performed.

Oasis Gaming was perplexed by WRONSKI’s Jett from the start of Game 1. He functioned as ORDER’s spacemaker throughout the series because of his ability to outsmart the competition.
He was able to make the most of his Jett’s mobility to the point where he outwitted and outperformed Oasis members. This eventually made it possible for his colleagues to determine Oasis Gaming’s position and outmaneuver them.
Then, as witnessed in Round 5 where he managed to secure a solid start, which provided his team the momentum during the eco round, he was able to land crucial kills.
But he didn’t just make an impact in Game 1, as he also dominated the early stages of Game 2. ORDER achieved a 7-0 start with his work.

The later rounds showed that the other members could have an impact, therefore WRONSKI did not control the entire series.
In Game 1, Cameron “disk0” Mac’s KAY/O caused trouble because Oasis’s assertiveness was slowed down by his utilities. This ultimately manifested itself within the Breeze tunnels, where he was successful in securing three kills in Round 13.
Additionally, he defeated Oasis’ attempts in Round 10 with an ace before that round had begun.
While he was the hero on Map 1, Elvin “Maple” Sun, a teammate, controlled Map 2 because his Fade was the decisive game-changer. His antics in Round 13 stood out because he used a spike plant to bait Mark Louis “Ripper” Laguardia, only for him to get a surprise.
And Riley “rDeeW” Wilkinson would put the final nail in the coffin as his long-distance assaults decimated the Filipino team in both games, crushing Oasis’ attempts. Oasis had no chance in the end. They could, though, recover in their remaining group-stage contests.
