With veterans BREN struggling to keep up with the current meta, their hopes for redemption to the standings are further denied by ONIC with a 2 – 0 sweep to end Week 4 Day 2 with BREN at the bottom of the ladder.
The debut of Khaleed and the newly – released Aulus implemented a slow pace for both teams in the early phase with constant engages and disengages that aimed for little miscalculations and openings for kills on the board. With important items online for Baloyskie’s Nathan and Markyyyyy’s Pharsaa midgame, the squad is now playing proactively by forcing clashes with Feather Air Strike as the main ingredient for map control. The early Lord at 10 minutes by ONIC gave way to the top lane and allowed Baloyskie to showcase his Nathan with a maniac that left BREN in awe but was able to keep their heads held high and deny an early loss. The Aulus core pick was not able to be the star of the show for BREN as the lack of mobility from the hero cannot open opportunities for lockdowns as to Lancelot’s high damage high mobility capabilities are more maximized by ONIC. The second lord take by ONIC at the 14-minute mark allowed the squad to push through and take the game with the team on the driver’s seat. The high damage output of the composition has shown to be too much for BREN as ONIC continued to step on the gas and take the nexus and dominate the first game.
Both teams swapped out some picks with Nathan and Popol and Kupa on the side of BREN and Beatrix and Chou for ONIC. The game started with picks and peels for both teams hoping to catch their targets off guard with exchanges of kills along the way. KarlTzy’s Benedetta was the harbinger for BREN’s window to recoup but the Lancelot pick from Kairi tiptoed through the damage and pulled off trade kills that allowed their own team to keep the gold and scoreboard to a tie. The lord became the deciding factor all game long for both teams as it stood as a bait for clashes waiting to be executed by whoever charges in first and the only possible door to knock towards each other’s bases. The last bait and pick at the lord in the 22-minute mark became the final strike for ONIC as the map control of Yu Zhong and Chou denied Nathan and Harith smooth entry to the clash and hand over their own heads to the side of ONIC. The man advantage and Lancelot still dishing out damage for ONIC filled to close the missing gaps, pushing through the nexus and further bury the crippling BREN down to the bottom of the standings.
