After conquering the South-East Asian Scene, the MSC Champs will be facing the red-hot ONIC Philippines, who just won their first match yesterday against their bitter rival, the rebranded, ECHO Philippines. In an off-season filled with drama, OMEGA will try to start the season on a high note. Spearheaded by their feisty tactician “PAB4ITS”, Captain “E2MAX”, ZAPNU, KIELVJ, RENZIO, CHAKNU, and KELRA along with their new acquisition, ALLIDAP, DIAN, RAIZEN and, HITO. Smart Omega will surely give everyone an explosive fight. On the other side ONIC PH would love to continue their streak to two games after a decisive victory against ECHO with the help of the exquisite plays from Baloyskie (former Greed) and Kairi. With the recent suspension of Kelra it is Hito that will play in behalf of the aggressive gold laner and for the side of Onic it is Ryota, Micophobia, and Markyyyyy that will play for the yellow and black.
The new kids from the Black and Yellow really helped the cause of Onic in game one. Sun (Markyyyy) doing the traditional Sun things, pushing towers and splitting teamfights. As per Wolf it is what they called the reversed UBE Strategy that focused on the objective game with Kairi and Markyyyy leading the way and the others focused on attacking Omega toe to toe. For Omega it was a solid first pick with Paquito but the mobility of team Onic sealed the deal for a quick sixteen minute game. Game two on the other hand is an absolute bloodbath with Omega securing the game tying win on the backs of the solid plays coming from Kielvj with his Ling who stole the last Lord leading to the last teamfight. It was a valiant effort for Onic though who rely on the vision game coming from the championship Natalia by Baloyskie who roamed around the map and made sure that Kielvj will have a hard time on farming but it is the ever reliant Chaknu with clutch Heart guard that saved not just the King the the whole army. But in game three the split pushing bandits are back at it again as they secure the game winning Natan but this time it falls on the hands of their solid gold laner Markyyyyy who continued the split pushing on the first half of the match. For the side of Omega it is the signature Khuffra for Chaknu that gave the boys in green and blue the vision and set-up but in the end the day, this is the Markyyyy Business show capping of an elite performance with 4-0-4 KDA that secured the second win of Onic and dealing Omega their first loss on their season opener. Here are the picks and bans for the three game series.
