It’s the final battle between Blacklist International and Nexplay EVOS for their regular season run. Nexplay EVOS has recently been knocked out of playoff contention recently but will they exit the regular season with a bang by taking down the M3 world champions?

For game one’s draft, Blacklist opted to go for their signature draft which included Fredrinn, Diggie, Karrie, Valentina, and Gloo. They seem to be following their signature UBE strategy. NXPE on the other hand drafted a Rafaela. Melissa, Pharsa, Arlott, and Fanny. NXPE usually draft tank junglers but this time they go on the offensive with Fanny. Both teams banned standard meta picks such as Beatrix, Joy, Ling, and Claude.

The game starts with Blacklist successfully taking the first turtle pick as well as the first blood increasing their gold lead to around 1000 gold. Blacklist uses this advantage to take down the next turtle and increase their map dominance which brings up their gold lead to around 3500 gold. By the fourth lord, Blacklist stays uncontested and with this they are able to wipe them out. They then siege NXPE's base winning Blacklist game 1.

Game two’s draft starts with NXPE picking out top meta picks such as Joy, Beatrix, Chou, and Arlott. They also drafted Selena who has not seen a lot of playtime in MPL. Blacklist still follow their core draft as they take Barats, Brody, Benedetta, Valentina, and Lollita. The bans for both teams followed similarly to the first game.

The game starts with a shaky clash during the first turtle objective wherein NXPE is able to take the first turtle. This allows them to hold some sort of semi early-game dominance where they also take down Edward for the first blood. The second turtle still goes to NXPE and with Blacklist trying to contest, NXPE is able to take two members down further increasing their gold lead. Their dominance lasts all the way until the second lord where they are able to dominate a team clash allowing them to win game two with an impressive 16-0 skill score. NXPE takes game two. 

For the final draft of the series, Blacklist still follows a bit of their core drafts as they take in Fredrinn, Wanwan, Gloo, Faramis, and Xavier. NXPE retaliates by taking Hayabusa, Lesley, Lollita, Arlott, and Valentina. Both teams seemed to follow a more attack heavy draft. The bans for both teams followed similarly to the last two games. 

The game starts with Blacklist taking first blood by slaying GoyongDR which starts their gold lead that follows into the first turtle take where they are successful. NXPE takes the gold lead from Blacklist with a successful gank onto Owl and by taking down the bottom tower. A lot of back and forth clashes take place but Blacklist is able to dominate, stealing back their gold lead of around 5000 gold. By the third lord, Blacklist seemed to be winning the clash by the lord pit but a turn of events take place after NXPE successfully maneuvers their skills to wipe out Blacklist and take the lord. This puts NXPE on such a dominating lead that they are able to successfully take down Blacklist’s base winning them game 3. NXPE take their final series win of the regular season.
