Looking to keep their win streak online, Blacklist International keep their strategies composed as the steamrolling squad halts Echo’s chance for retaliation with a clean sweep and keep their crown in their heads.
“Hindi kami magpapakampante.” Blacklist International’s Dexstar proudly said in an interview after the match.
Game 1 looked to be a streak – ender for Blacklist as the kill trades went on from the early phase up until the late game, keeping the lead in a rollercoaster for both teams and a festival of kills and deaths. The Gloo pick from Kurtzy became a vital pick for Echo with its Grab,grab kept its crosshairs on Ohmyv33nus which disrupted the healing potential of the team, halting their chances to go all in and keeping their backs against the wall and utilize close - counter engages to keep their walls standing. Edward’s sneaky split pushing and wave clear in the side lines with Benedetta allowed Blacklist to keep their heads above water as it stops the push of Echo despite winning multiple clashes mid to late game. With both teams getting all items locked in, OHEB’s Alice filled in the winning formula for Blacklist’s equation to take the first game and take game point to maintain their streak.
Echo went in for a more offensive approach on their draft with a double marksman and a Harley pick from Hadess that made a threat to the sustain composition for their opponents. With the high-risk high reward damage ceiling by Echo, the squad squeezed in more damage than Blacklist could consume which made Ohmyv33nus and the pack play for safe picks and mitigate all damage possible that is thrown at them. The rollercoaster of kills and the gold lead was similar to the first game where Echo also had the upper hand at objectives but the map awareness by Hadji’s Chou rotation and OhmyV33nus’ Estes closed Echo’s opportunities of assassination and keep the squad up and running. The lack of frontline for Echo proved to be a disadvantage in the late game as the composition of Blacklist is now able to take in the damage with their sustain and DPS that is now on par without fear of being chipped out one by one. With the lord secured by Wise, Blacklist grasped the opportunity to siege through the base and force a clash on their advantage, closing it out and finally piercing through the base to end the series with a clean sweep.
