Omega Esports excels the most in high-pressure situations. And true to form, they overcame the possibility of being eliminated by disposing of Singapore’s last surviving hope, EVOS SG, with a resounding 3-0 victory.
Omega’s MSC campaign will continue while EVOS must leave; it is waiting for the winner of the match between RSG Philippines and Orange Esports.
In the entire series, EVOS SG outperformed.
Since their initiations were so highly reliant on Tristan Christopher “Gear” Nathanael’s Akai, EVOS SG was simply outdrafted in Game 1.
It seemed promising at first because Gear was able to hit Omega with flawless ults, but the latter was able to quickly adjust to their shenanigans.
When Gear activated his ult, they were faster thanks to their battle spell Sprint.
Omega still had their countermeasures prepared even after losing their main damage dealer, Duane “Kelra” Pillas, thanks to Joshua “Ch4knu” Mangilog’s Natalia, who was stealing EVOS’ main damage dealers, Basil Lim “Seilah” Dao Ze and Adam “Adammir” Chong.
The reigning MSC champions ultimately rendered EVOS speechless.
The story continued in Game 2 as well. However, Omega never even offered their Singaporean counterparts a shred of hope this time.
As Kelra and Renzio dominated their lanes, Ch4knu’s Chou was all over the place setting up plays. In Game 2, EVOS SG was merely outmatched.
Do or die for EVOS Singapore
Seeing the need to recover, EVOS SG struggled mightily in Game 3 to maintain their chances. Both teams engaged in back-and-forth engagements, but Omega maintained the upper hand by taking down the enemy turrets to secure its objectives.
Thanks to a long-range barrage from Beatrix and Xavier of Adammir and Seilah, as well as vital wraparounds from Natalia of Akihiro “JPL” Furusawa, EVOS was able to survive for a long time.
However, Omega discovered weaknesses as the fight went on. Dean Christian “Raizen” Samagui bursted down their damage dealers with Seilah exposed in terms of location.
EVOS attempted to react with a Lord steal attempt in the 18th minute, but all of their hopes were dashed as Omega once again showed why they always perform well in the lower bracket.
