With both teams being at the bottom of the standings in the first couple of weeks- redemption deems to take over in this massive battle with an entry of both old and new tricks up their sleeves. Malik goes in for Bren Esports, while MSC MVP Kelra finally gets to play after two weeks.
Game 1 started off with the usual slugfest but minimized the kill count. The side-laners from BREN have totally delivered in making the necessary plays that meet their winning condition. Malik's Alice never left the Gold Lane to rack up the items to the point where he was ready to synergize with the team fight- and FlapTzy showed some flashes of his Season 6 self, bringing the Bravest Fighter skill of his Lapu-Lapu to stun three heroes and bring the weight of the game on Omega's shoulders. This play secured them of the Luminous Lord and the first game even when it was extended by OMG to 21 minutes.
And then there was BREN in the second game- being absolute madmen and not giving the opposing team a break. Ch4knu had comfort heroes (Khufra) on both rounds of the series, but even deemed as the best tanker in Southeast Asia- Lusty showed him a throwback hero that gave Philippines a gold medal in the 2019 SEA Games, Grock. The quality use of Guardian's Barrier and the game-deciding Wild Charge to pick off heroes, together with the Ange-Ling combo well-manufactured the hard engage potential their combination had. Aside from that, another surprise pick in Chou for FlapTzy was something he hid for a long time. Their valuable heroics gave their team the first three points after taking down the Kings of Southeast Asia in dominating fashion.
Malik seemed like the more stable guy on Gold Lane because of his showing with the use of his Alice on both games. With Pheww out of the lineup, will the trend of taking new players from the bench continue for BREN? Or will they stick with the same lineup that got them their first win? But even with all of the defeats they've encountered this season, this picture below just shows you that they have the same hunger they had in the World Championships. FlapTzy hugging it out with KarlTzy and Coach Duckeyy was a sight to see for all fans of yellow and black. This win meant so much to him, and this might be the start of the redemption quest of the world dominators.
"Salamat po sa lahat ng mga sumuporta sa amin. Salamat po dahil sa inyo, dahil sa inyo ito po yung unang panalo namin." - Malik on his Post-Match Interview.
On the other hand, Kelra may have a little rust from not being able to play at the highest level for a while. The comeback kings may have not found their groove to win at least a game today, but it is still a long season to figure it all out.
GAME 1: BREN WIN 13-4 (21:34)
GAME 2: BREN WIN 16-4 (11:34)
