Onic Philippines was named as the super rookie amateur team from the previous season, and they will now go up against the new super rookie team in town once again. After suffering a defeat from Onic on the first half, can Nexplay Evos win against their rivals from the amateur scene this time?
The draft was similar to the draft of the first half of the season. Nexplay prioritize a Fredrinn despite many highly prioritized heroes were opened such as Kadita, Arlott, and Pharsa. Onic drafted a combination of Pharsa and Yuzhong while Nexplay got a flex pick Kadita and a Beatrix for gold lane. Claude was picked by Onic way too early considering it’s a Claude. Nexplay finalized their draft with a Hayabusa and a Chou pick while Onic picked Lolita and Martis. Overall, Nexplay had a pickoff centric line up while Onic had teamfight and objective centric draft.
It was an unfortunate early game for Nexplay Evos as Onic Philippines secured all three turtles and a Lord. This allowed Onic to destroy all of NXPE’s outer turrets but despite this, the gold lead was just 2.6k in favor to Onic. By the time the second Lord spawned, Nexplay tried to contest despite Onic’s minion pushing bottom. Onic went for their signature Lord dance as their minion destroyed the bottom lane’s outer turret. In addition to that, an engage from BruskoDR actually went in favor of Onic as they counter initiate using all their skills allowed them to take a 2-1 trade and a Lord. Just before the third Lord spawned, Onic was able to kill BoyetDR's Hayabusa. Nexplay tried to make a play in the river opposite to Lord however the counter initiation skills from Onic was once again shown. With BoyetDr and DingDR down, Onic had a free Lord. With a Lord siege, Onic base locks Nexplay. They destroyed Nexplay’s base and claimed game number 1.
Onic drafted a Valentina to limit Nexplay’s option for Ultimate reliant heroes. Nexplay prioritized their Beatrix and Gloo while Onic still retain their Claude pick. Onic went for teamfight and crown control heavy composition this time with their secure of Arlott and Ruby pick. While, Nexplay fight fire with fire with their own AOE burst damage from Pharsa and Beatrix and huge ultimate from Lolita.
It was a slow snowball for Onic as they accumulate kills and objectives around the map. There were many Final Slash engages from Ryota that allowed Onic to continue their snowball. By 20 minutes into the game, the kill score was 10-0 with an 8 thousand gold lead for the side of Onic. Onic secured their third and final lord after killing DingDR. Nexplay was able to successfully defend this however, for some reason BoyetDR went overboard as he dove through the backline of Onic, isolating him from the rest of his teammates. He was chased by 5-man Onic and forced to end the game as they also caught DingDR once again. With this, Onic proved their superiority as they defeat Nexplay once again.
