Both teams which are at the top, in their top form while aiming for the spot. As much as the standings have constantly moved, these same teams prove they aren't content and still have much to prove. Echo on the Dyrroth jungler faces RSG with the Baxia, immediately showing us an early fight and casualty less than a minute into the game. Surprisingly, however, seemingly bringing with them the momentum they had after their win against TNC the previous day--RSG continues to surprise and with an early semi-wipeout eventually gets by. Each and every time, RSG is able to exemplify the better layering and coordination of their skills, catching ECHO by surprise with minimal room to react and take the necessary trades for themselves. Demonkite on the Baxia was nearly unkillable, and every single player from RSG had their own tricks up their sleeve. As much as ECHO did their best to hold onto their base, unfortunately not much was possible with the pressure RSG was already capable of doing then.
A similar entrance is shown as we enter the second game of the series, wherein RSG yet again is able to outrotate and get an early lead against ECHO, despite Demonkite falling into the hands of ECHO as the first casualty of the game. Not until the 10-minute mark did the total number of kills exceed 10, and YAWI on this Chou evidently had a difficult time providing the usual set-ups he's known for given the fact that it was RSG who was able to anticipate their movements each and every time. With yet another exemplary performance from the raiders, The winstreak continues and RSG PH successfully climbs to the top.
GAME 1 (16:29) - ECHO 5 (L); RSG 15 (W)
