RRQ Hoshi had a massive lead in the early parts of game one. RSG PH had no towers left standing at the 17-minute mark, and RRQ Hoshi tried to end the game, but the Filipino squad clapped back and successfully defended their base.
It was the same story in the second game with RRQ Hoshi getting the early lead, but eventually falling off in the late game. Dylan “Light” Catipon’s Lolita played a big part, as he timed Noumenon Blast very well in team fights.
In game three, RSG PH marched down the midlane after securing the Enhanced Lord 29-minutes in. as RRQ was trying to defend the base, Arvie “Aqua” Antonio’s Yve caught all of the Indonesian members inside Real World Manipulation.
Only Deden “Clayyy” Muhammad Nurhasan’s Xavier survived the team fight for RRQ Hoshi. Unfortunately, he wasn’t able to defend their base as Eman “EMANN” Sangco’s Karrie and Nathanael “Nathzz” Estrologo’s Esmeralda, two of the team’s main damage dealers, went all-in on Indonesia’s base.
RSG PH made quick work of the King of Kings in the fourth game. In the mid game, Light’s Khufra stunned two members of RRQ to get the easy kills. RSG then pushed midlane and eventually wiped out everyone in the their base to secure the 4-0 sweep.
