Week 5 opens with a rematch between the Southeast Asian kings and the banana split chefs of this season, one of them wanting to rise back to the top whereas the other is still sitting at second place in the current standings. A lot of adjustments have been made during the previous week, and we are yet to see how all of the teams in this season are going to answer to the changes and adjustments they’re made to deal with mid-season. There were many heroes who were temporarily banned during this week, most of which were often picked during the earlier weeks. Topped with the 10-hero ban, we were made to see new picks and adjustments coming in from both teams, beginning with the Aulus core coming in from ONIC and the Bane core coming in from OMG. Semi-dual lanes began to show up for the first match, with Beemo on the Baloyskie often accompanying Hatred on the Bruno--and just the same, Ch4knu on the Kaja often accompanied Kelra on the Lunox. OMG had quite the upper hand during the early portions of the game, but the moment Hatred was able to take out turrets coming and provide more gold for their team, ONIC began to assert their dominance and take out turret after turret against OMG, leaving them with only one inhibitor turret 12 minutes into the game. ONIC proceeds to take game number 1 after winning each and every succeeding fight, especially with Hatred’s Bruno completely online.
The surprises just keep coming as another surprising Aldous gold lane is shown to us by Kelra of OMG, together with E2MAX and the comeback of Yve. ONIC, on the other hand, surprises us with Hatred and Kairi swapping their roles as Hatred makes use of a Sun jungler, and Kairi goes for Brody at the non-turtle lane. OMG, once more, gets the better early game almost not giving any space for ONIC to take the farm necessary for them with their somewhat triple marksman lineup, but this time OMG was able to control it up until the very end. Things became too difficult for the side of ONIC, also considering that despite Yve’s ultimate being now something possible to interrupt, they had no hero to answer to that nor to dive into the backlines of OMG, and OMG was then able to take game 2 back against ONIC PH.
Game number 3 took some to begin, but that doesn’t seem to be the case for the game duration itself as both teams are clearly after putting a quick end to the game. OMG gains the better early game once more considering that they utilized the Baxia core--a hero capable of clearing the jungle fast especially taking into consideration the recent changes in the current patch, and oftentimes get the better of the 5v5 teamfight initiations. However, ONIC PH gets to turn things around after taking the second lord of the game, and they proceed to turn their confidence into the necessary decisions which fulfill the conditions for them to secure the series later on, with a score of 2-1 against OMG.
