A matchup between two teams that were able to prove their strengths internationally. Though OMG has not been the most promising by the start of MPL S9, they finally got the wake up call they needed today.
Game 1: OMG (W) 11 V. ONIC (L) 9 (15:6)
Nothing beats the classic as they say. OMG chose their comfort heroes, ones they’ve branded for so long. We usually see a Grock nullify a Selena but what happens if they belong in the same team? The vision a Selena can provide the team sped up the initiations of Ch4knu’s Grock, even nullifying the signature hero (Natalia) of Baloyskie. It’s no wonder that E2MAX is the MVP of the game for the momentum he provided his team because of his archery skills with the Selena gameplay. In just 15 minutes, OMG was able to close the game.
Game 2: OMG (L) 19 V. ONIC (W) 15 (22:58)
ONIC, more careful this time, had to take Beatrix not only for their advantage but as respect for Kelra. ONIC however, had to give the early game to OMG but was able to stall the game until they gain enough gold to proceed with their careful and methodical team fights, when Markyyyyy will be able to show us his own version of the Beatrix gameplay. This is the time when we can say that Beatrix wins games for the series.
Game 3: OMG (W) 11 V. ONIC (L) 15 (19:12)
How are these teams holding up after having a long Game 2? OMG knew that they could not let go of the Beatrix this time, urgently picking her in the drafting phase.
ONIC maintained their methodical approach in Game no. 3, consistently being in the lead until the most breathtaking moment happened. After ONIC’s successful teamfight in the lord pit, allowing the most powerful smash to happen in OMG’s base, OMG was able to put on their best defenses, glittered by the Maniac play from Kelra. OMG knew how to take a once in a lifetime opportunity, ignoring the presence of Baloyskie in ONIC’s base tower, grabbing that win for their team.
Almost is never enough as we know
