The previous games were different for the competing teams in today's series. The current MPL-PH and world champions, Blacklist International, snatched its first win against the previous world champions, BREN, reigniting hope to hop on back to the tournament run. RSG, on the other hand, falls in the hands of the super team, ECHO. Equipped with the newly-found code, can Blacklist continue its momentum against one of its 'friends' in the MPL?

Just when we thought that they would have a fresh start from a win, Blacklist International was forced back as RSG-PH rushes aggressively against the world champions. With Demonkite (Hayabusa) at the forefront, backed by Aqua's (Kagura) massive burst damage and Light's magnificent playmaking skills, it was a clean and disciplined game for the team. The failure of the early shutdown for EMANN (Brody) proved to be costly as RSG-PH was instantly able to convert objectives from the other side of the map. As Nathzz (Esmeralda) absorbs damage from all members of Blacklist International, they are forced back and left helpless as their opponents marches down their base. With one excellent set from Nathzz and Light, Blacklist was wiped out and RSG-PH takes game #1.

Everyone was shocked by the Chou pick from Demonkite in the jungle. In the early stages of the game, it proved to be effective, with the fast clear coming from the hero equipped by the Demon Slayer jungle emblem. In fact, the early game was easily in favour of RSG as they were able to get two (2) early pick off while Blacklist is forced to retreat. However, in true Blacklist fashion, it was an objective kind of game. Due to DEX STAR's magnificent use of Edith, they were able to get pick off, quickly translating it into turtle and turret objectives. With this huge space given, The Filipino Sniper easily goes online—destroying everything in its path.

Despite the ingenious pick of Chou, the damage of RSG-PH proved to lack its effectiveness against the newly found code. Blacklist International flexes against RSG-PH, taking game #2.

With their momentum going on from winning the 2nd game, Blacklist International looks to close the 3rd game early as Aqua was given a Cecilion pick. True enough, the current champions went aggressive early on, getting early pick off and objectives, leaving RSG to halt and wait patiently. They were in control of most phases of the early to mid game, all until the first lord take, where Light's Chou was able to expertly cast the Way of the Dragon against Kevier's Lancelot, leading to the latter's death and their team's objective steal. That first lord take play can be considered a fluke, but it was Light proving the audience wrong by seemingly doing the same thing again in the 2nd lord take, securing the objective for their team, and wiping out the rest of Blacklist International.

Meanwhile, it was as if EMMAN's Beatrix was fearless against the current champions as he bares his fangs on them, having a KDA of 7/0/1. It was RSG that is left standing as the current kings bow before the king slayers, RSG takes the series 2-1.
