With Raizen coming to play in exchange of Hito, Omega Esports finally secured a clean three points and bagged their first win thanks to their playmaking sensation in Ch4knu and E2Max- the captain's shotcalling against Iy4knu and Resurgence Philippines.
The long-awaited first win finally arrived for the Kings of Southeast Asia. How? It's by playing the game the best way they know- bringing the fight to the late game with both matches ending over 18 minutes. "Alam naming lamang kami sa lineup. Nag-hintay lang talaga kami na magka-item tas' ayun na", says E2Max after a stellar performance with Beatrix as he bagged one of the MVP awards. It truly has been the game plan since their draft composition always had a hero who's very sustainable- Renzio with Barats in both games. They even managed to adjust and continued ganking RSG's side lanes to provide pressure to the enemy Esmeralda who gave them a headache in the first game. Aside from that, commendation should also be given to Raizen who played in the gold lane for Omega Esports. He may not be the most explosive as Kelra- who missed his third straight match, he was stable enough for the rest of the squad to be able to operate in other parts of the map. Both using Alice and Lunox, two heroes who scale very well in the current meta, it is almost certain that Raizen will be given another chance to play in their next two matches- Nexplay Evos on Sunday, and their MSC rivals in Blacklist International. "Next week mag-uumpisa ang tunay na laban", as were the words of El Kapitan. But throughout this win, will they be able to find the light at the end of the tunnel and turn things around for the rest of the week after a 0-2 start?
RSG on the other hand, may have found themselves back in regular footing after setting the bar high with their win against Bren Esports in the first week. With the same lineup, they faced the maestros of the late game- but didn't have the same result as their first match. They had a lot of rotations and plays prepared upon facing Omega throughout the night but the opposing team seemed to always have an answer to whenever they fake retreating back to the base, engage in team fights or trade with OMG for turrets and jungle objectives. It wasn't their best of games, especially in Game 1 where they had every opportunity to win but failed to capitalize on the space that the Kingslayer was giving as he continues to zone the enemy heroes out with this Esmeralda pick. The winning condition left as soon as the fight arrived in the late stages of the game and it was too little, too late for the men in blue and white. With this, will they finally put in more players and surprises for teams to watch out for? We are yet to see Exort- a newcomer from the previous Nexplay Solid squad last season. But it's not just him we have take into consideration, since there are still a handful of players coaches have to choose from as they go up against Echo Philippines: a team riding their momentum in the first week.
