Amihan Esports defied all the odds to win the Wild Rift Southeast Asia Icon Series Philippines: Summer Season championship after a tight 3-2 victory over Team Secret in the grand finals, Sunday evening.
The Visayas champion, after winning the opening game of the grand finals, dropped two consecutive games to Team Secret to move on the verge of elimination.
However, a monster Akali game from KARLLL in the 16-7 Game Four win threw the series to a winner-take-all Game Five.
Come the decider, Amihan Esports never gave Team Secret the slightest hope as they dominated the match via a 16-1 score. Jelson’s Vi proved to be the difference-maker in Game Five, putting up 11 assists and two kills without a single death.
Orhtros’s Janna led the offense for Amihan Esports as he tallied five kills and 10 assists while Demon’s Xayah chipped in six kills and five assists for the champions.
Tatsurii (Corki) was the lone player for Team Secret to get a kill. He finished with a 1-3-0 stat line.
Amihan Esports bagged a total of ₱400,000 while Team Secret took home ₱300,000.
Liyab Esports finished at third place while title favorites Smart Omega Esports ended up at fourth. They won ₱300,000 and ₱200,000, respectively.
Nexplay Esports, the winner of the preseason tournament, and RRQ settled for a fifth-sixth place end while bagging ₱100,000 each. Fennel Adversity and VVV Esports finished dead-last at seventh-eight.
