A lot of spectators were anticipating these two teams in their upcoming match. Their banters all over social media continued to hype up the approaching series- and it looks like Nexplay EVOS will be the ones to make some noise.
"Mindset lang po siguro namin. Nag-change po kami ng mindset na kaya po namin, and ginamit din po namin yung motivation na sinabi sa'min ni Sir Midnight. Focus lang sa goal! One Team, One Goal!" - H2wo in his Post-Match Interview.
With Wrecker and AkosiDogie being the most influential of personalities turned pro in the MLBB scene, the community was looking forward to see if they would finally give the fans what they wanted. However, they didn't get to grace us with their presence due to the coach's decision from both teams.
The first game of the series was simply push-and-pull because of the essential plays both sides have continuously pulled off to begin the anticipated battle. Yawi starts off as he creates a way for his teammates to scale early in the game with his Flicker-Way of the Dragon Combo. However, it was equalized by a sustaining lineup drafted by Coach Panda (Gloo, Baxia, Alice). A Luminous Lord-Steal taken by Jeymz's Last Insanity in the 26th minute of the game ultimately gave way for the Tigers to unleash fury in the opening roulette. The underrated EXP laner showed why he also deserves the spotlight aside from the famous Big 3.
The second game started with NXPE having the same early-game dominant type of lineup- with Renejay utilizing Lylia in the Gold Lane. However, Yawi got picked-off twice by Heath's Ejector plays to eliminate the former's playmaking factor. But the longer the fight continued, the winners of the first game doesn't have enough burst to easily take down Nathzz with his Uranus- continuously healing and pushing his lane. Although H2wo's Ling doesn't have a single casualty up until the 18th minute, he couldn't make game-changing plays because of the limited resources he had the whole game. But at the same time, NXPE held on for dear life by prioritizing both Uranus and Esmeralda to eliminate the annoying regeneration ability and took the Lord right away. NXPE's micro-management earned them 3 points in this match. The development and maturity coming from the lads to maintain their composure and consider options that not their past selves would've managed to pull off.
Exort for RSG tried to show his former teammates how he's been doing. But on the other hand, his former teammates welcomed his Season 8 debut with a loss. He is one of the players that RSG chose to pull in this game to create bigger chances for them to win- since he came from the same mindset and team kinetic.
This is NXPE riding their momentum from taking down Omega Esports last week. With Coach Midnight, Coach Zico, and a total team effort, they wanted to make sure that their recent victory was no fluke and they topped good news with another one- beating their Boss D's Social Media Nemesis.
