Coming from a decoded loss, Blacklist International face off Smart Omega in the last series of Day 2 of the final week of kickoff. Blacklist drafted a squishy composition with Wise locking in Granger and OHEB with Kimmy giving two marksmen for the team. Hadji locked in Diggie along with OhmyV33nus as Mathilda as the two supports and Edward for Paquito. OMG drafted the Balmond core for Raizen with Kelra as Nathan for the secondary DPS. OMG dominated the early phase with the aggression against the opposing team playing safe and keeping the distance that allowed Raizen to secure all three turtles. Blacklist, trying to keep UBE work, contested the scoreboard with kills of their own and scale the DPS of the team. Both teams forced clashes in the midgame when OMG secured the first lord in the 10 – minute mark. The item lead on Raizen was seen as a threat as the damage output and sustain from the spell vamp allowed his Balmond to decimate through his opponents and keep the pressure against Blacklist. The tankiness of Renzio’s Barats allowed OMG to endure the range advantage of the team but the teamwork led by the queen’s circling eagle allowed Blacklist to contest objectives and deal enough damage in safe distances to peel off the health bars of their opponents. With turret takedowns even and the items locked in for all members playing, it all led to misplays and capitalizing mistakes as the winning conditions as the late game commences. The lord contest in the 36 – minute mark signaled the victorious charge for Blacklist despite being stolen from the lord from Raizen and eliminating two more members of OMG, pushing through the base with 80 seconds timers on the clock for the slain OMG squad, taking the first game while beating the record for the longest game of the season at 38:06 on the timer.
The second game was a showoff of pocket picks as Wise locks in Bane for Blacklist and Raizen locking in Roger for OMG. The early game was made for the unorthodox composition of Blacklist with picture perfect positioning of Hadji’s Yve opened the scoreboard with a double kill followed by a kill for OHEB’s Nathan after a turtle take by Raizen. When the sharks come online, it was time for Wise to synchronize with the team and continue the domination by keeping the pressure around the map and forcing clashes that are surely winnable for the squad. OMG showed their own prowess by picking off their opponents with Ch4knu’s Jawhead Ejector that can throw off targets for kills. Ejecting Wise however, allows the sharks from Deadly Catch to bite off their prey in the backline while sustaining the damage with Ale that flips the switches of victory towards Blacklist, breaking an inhibitor turret in under 10 minutes. An uncontested lord in the 11 – minute mark turned on the green light for Blacklist to continue their push without letting OMG formulate any chance of a comeback, changing the pace of the first game and finishing the series in a commanding victory in 12 minutes.
