With their successful run at the Sibol qualifiers NXPE tries to start the season with a bang against their opponent in the lower bracket finals of the same tournament, RSG PH. Both teams will banner new faces and each has an upside and plays a huge role for their respective squad. Also, the battle of the junglers will create tons of firepower as Demonkite faces H2wo, these ultra skilled players will be the barometer of their team's success. And the game was a war zone from start to finish.
Evos started the game locked and loaded. The Clint pick by Donut secured the first turret of the game and is shaping up to be his game to win. The rotation from Yellyhaze, Cadenza and H2wo forced RSG to react and leave their lanes just to react with the aggression provided by NXPE. But just like what they say “good things happens to those who wait” and RSG proved that they are disciplined, despite of the onslaught coming from the NXPE in the early game, RSG rallied behind the brilliance of Phoveus of Natz and Beatrix of Emman. Demonkite on the other hand, despite the slow start, found his way on how to contribute and focused on the Yve by Yellyhaze. For NXPE it is not a bad game either, you can tell that their draft is built for the earlier side of things which they did, but in the later part of the game that’s when you feel that the damage is insufficient and they falter in the end.
For game number two, NXPE made a change in their line-up by inserting Ureshi in favor of Sagitnu to give another flavor as they try to extinguish the fire coming out of Demonkite. The game started the same way as game number one started but this time, RSG is ready for the NXPE split. Aqua and his Kagura is ready to burst H2 everytime he uses his tempest of blades even Light (Ruby) and Natz (Gloo) get their hands on the core of NXPE. For Evos Donut had a good outing with his Gold Laner debut but they still need to find their strides to get their first victory.
Ureshi and Donut had a great outing but RSG has a solid plan on how to deal with the rotation of NXPE, even if this game is longer than their game one victory, you can feel that Resurgence had their grasp on the game as they secure objective after objective up until the 20th minute lord and finish it in a seamless fashion. The game ended with H2wo as the remaining player from NXPE as the tries clear the wave and prolong the match but RSG is just too much for Evos to handle.
