Spectators were thinking of how Blacklist International would capitalize on Patch 1.6.18- giving the Marksmen buffed stats all throughout the charts to increase their winning streak to 9-0. However, facing them was a squad that was desperately hungry for some points to catch up in the standings. Toshi goes in for Kousei to face his former teammate Hadji, and even 3MarTzy and Light bring it back to face the defending champions.
It's actually surprising that Blacklist International picked Vale for Hadji to utilize, up against a Baxia jungler from TNC- which is predicted by our shoutcasters since it seems to work really well in other countries, specifically in Indonesia and teams from Malaysia. And it seems to work for Chuuu as no one from the other team contested in the first turtle buff. Even when the agents took the second objective, they immediately capitalized with a turret and a kill trade to neutralize. 3Mar welcomes everyone to his city with this Thamuz, putting pressure on Edward and Wise to avoid the farm and early-game scale.
But Blacklist never wanted to go down, capitalizing with kills on both TNC's Thamuz and Baxia, the tankiest members of the gents in orange in the 13th minute of the game. The patience from Wise together with the right timing- clinching the retribution to shift the tides back into their favor. From there, Hadji had the items to pull off the Windblow-Windstorm Combination in the tightest spots to bring them the victory in Game #1.
TNC may have lost the first one, but they look to fight back with the same Baxia Jungle on Chuu, a P&K special on Light, and a 3Mar Phoveus. However, they were facing the world-famous Mathilda Airlines and Wise-SS, the same jungler in the first matchup. Blacklist also added Bruno on the Gold Lane to wrap the double marksman lineup in Game 2.
The difference in the next match was very evident. Because of the pressure OHEB had in the Gold Lane, Chuuu was forced to use the Shield Unity to assist Toshi in the bottom lane, giving all the turtle objectives to Wise in the first 7 minutes of the game. From there, it was another day at work for the defending champions as they took over in the Land of Dawn to extend their undefeated record to 9-0.
"Di ko masabi. Madami kaming tine-test sa scrim, marami pa kaming sinusubukan since kailan lang nagkaroon ng patch so abangan nila kung ano yung tine-testing namin." OhMyV33nus when asked about their adjustments in the recent patch.
Blacklist International rose even further to 23 points with the 2-0 win as TNC Pro Team stays at the bottom of the standings with 6 points after this series.
