A team that has been labeled "The King Slayers" after putting down one strong team after another- and the only undefeated team this season. Rivals also meet once more- Hadji and Heath were former Omega teammates and OhmyV33nus, Wise and Iy4knu were all from ONIC Philippines for a couple of seasons. You knew this was gonna be a good fight.
An unorthodox approach came in for RSG in the first game. Banning Aldous, Alice and Phoveus instead of taking out Vee's heroes is a brave stand- telling Blacklist that the men in blue and white were ready for all of the strategies they've stored. The agents probably knew about this- surprising everyone with a Bruno pick that would go to Wise for the jungler role.
Man, oh man. Wise simply had two bodyguards with two healers- one who can direct him with Vee's Guiding Wind, and Hadji's Holy Healing. Aside from that, RSG tried to pick off Edward from the other side of the Ultimate Bonding Experience but he even managed to almost outplay the oppressors.
RSG wasn't getting a break as Wise can even move without his other teammates being around. With continuous healing and mobility boost, they just seem to always make it work. Whether they stick together or divide the fight- which was the last thing they did in Game 1, it was an amazing showcase of mechanics and discipline.
The draft for the second game started off with the Paquito going first for Blacklist- something Edward is fond of using. Aside from that, the comfort continues as The Queen gets the Estes. RSG brought Pharsa into the mix to bring the pain from the long range, and Barats to take the damage in close combat.
RSG started this game different. Knowing that the defending champions are thriving in the early-game, Heath and Iy4knu immediately applied pressure to the objective-taking of their opponents. However, UBE-Strategy went all-in on the turtle fight to take down more heroes while being together. Nathzz had good intentions to pick off someone from BLCK. However, Hadji offers his Chou as continuous bait and easily blinks away to safety. Speaking of safety, RSG has been using their ultimates to play defense. Alecto: Final Blow to get out, Feathered Airstrike to clear the waves and avoid opponent engage.
But right when everyone thought RSG were making the right steps to bounce back and take the game to equalize, Oheb did the "RubyDD play" going in with the Lunox's Order of Brilliance for an eventual win, keeping the defending champions a cut from the others, being the only team that remains undefeated after taking down all their rivals in their first meeting.
"Gusto ko rin matalo, kasi pag natatalo ka- mas nakikita mo kung ano yung mga kailangan mong i-adjust." OhmyV33nus in the Post-Match Interview
RSG may have been swept in this series, but here's to hoping they'd still maintain the same composure to go after the giants of the MPL Philippines, and in the long run- bring it all in to take their position back in the better half of the standings. The bottom seems to be pretty tight with the other teams hungry to stack up wins.
GAME 1: BLCK WIN 8-1 (11:36)
GAME 2: BLCK WIN 15-6 (14:18)
