Dale reminds Falcon Esports to keep eyes on the prize

Falcon Esports dealt defending champion Blacklist International two consecutive losses en route to the upper bracket playoffs of the M4 World Championships, Tuesday night at the Bali United Studio.

The Myanmar-based club shocked Blacklist International to cap off the group stage, forcing a three-way tie in Group A which eventually led to a round robin tiebreaker that also included Incendio Supremacy.

Falcon Esports then dispatched the Turkish squad to open the bonus round before asserting its mastery over the Pinoy team once again which allowed them to finish the group at the number one spot all while clinching one of the two upper bracket berths in the pool.

Still, despite the massive feat that saw them win three pressure-packed games in a span of four hours, Falcon Esports coach Steven “Dale” Vitug reminded his wards that the job is not yet done.

Dale also said that the win over Blacklist International will be a huge confidence-booster for the Burmese squad, which is set to take on ONIC Esports in the best-of-five upper bracket playoffs.

“Una sa lahat masaya kasi naka-secure kami ng upper bracket pero that doesn’t mean na tapos na yung laban,” said Dale just moments after the crucial win.

“Ano lang, kumbaga yung panalo namin and pag-secure ng upper bracket momentum para sa team. Since Blacklist is the defending champion, I think the win today is a momentum boost for the team,” he added.

Falcon Esports started its group stage campaign on the wrong foot, losing to Incendio Supremacy before eventually taking a controversial win over Burn X Flash.

Since the loss to the Turkish squad, Falcon Esports went on a tear and won their last four games of the tournament.
