The last series of Day 2 ends with the hopeful former champions OMG going up against ECHO in another make or break match where a loss will closely bury OMG down to elimination of the playoff contention. OMG picked up Roger for Raizen as the scaling jungler while the rest of the squad continued the draft with control mages Alice and Pharsa for Kelra and E2max, respectively. ECHO opted for the Hayabusa pick by Hadess and more damage output as Kurtzy locks in Benedetta and Bennyqt as the newly revamped Kagura. Fast rotation was the gameplan of both teams as both compositions are focused on scaling for the late game. Damage trades were thrown out in the early game and a purple buff steal by Rk3’s Yve proved to be crucial in delaying Raizen’s farm. As the snowballing teams gathered enough items the clashes started crashing throughout the field with Echo taking the first two kills. The slow pace transitioned into an action-packed array of damage exchanges, picking off the kills for Raizen and Hadess. The lead was handled by Echo in the first 10 minutes until the lord clash in the 11 – minute mark where Raizen miraculously stole the lord and took three kills along with it opened the doors for OMG to stop knocking and start crashing into the nexus to secure game 1 within 12 minutes.
With OMG having their hopes up, the team drafted Phoveus and Estes to easen the high damage output composition of Echo with the unconventional Argus pick by Bennyqt and the high mobility high damage Paquito for KurtTzy and Yi Sun Shin for Hadess. It was all out offense for both teams as the high damage composition of paid off for Echo as they take first blood in the first minute of the game. Ch4knu’s way of the dragon and roaming dominance remained a threat to the offense of Echo as it scatters the team and allows isolation for individual kills. Echo weathered the storm by keeping the aggression running and hold the lead into their hands. A win for OMG would give them hope in their playoff contention and keep their reputation as the roster to keep an eye on. The game was stabilized in the midgame where the lead riding in a rollercoaster going in both sides of the table. Perfect shotcalling and execution were the remaining win conditions for both contenders. Phoveus sustained all the damage for OMG while dishing out damage of his own while the team backs up the offense. With the lord secured by OMG 14 minutes into the game, the split push was initiated by the squad and successfully peel off the defenses. Echo tried to hold on to their nexus until the 18 minute mark where OMG sought to force the clash and keep their eyes on the prize, finally claiming the nexus and the series win.
