M4: Dale’s Falcon has rollercoaster Day 1; Kairi’s ONIC Esports suffers upset

Steven “Dale” Vitug and Falcon Esports yielded mixed results to open the M4 World Championships while ONIC Esports’ Kairi “Kairi” Rayosdelsol and Denver “Yeb” Miranda suffered an upset in their return to the world stage, Sunday night at the Bali United Studio.

Dale and Falcon Esports figured in a horror start after suffering a shocking upset against Incendio Supremacy earlier in the day.

Kenneth “Kenn” Hein was the lone bright spot for the Burmese squad, notching two kills on Ling in the 3-16 beating. Pyae “JustiN” Khant (Faramis) and Min “Naomi” Ko (Lolita) combined for 11 deaths in the loss.

Falcon Esports quickly licked its wounds and fended off a gritty Burn X Flash squad that is playing without Filipino head coach John “Zico” Dizon, who tested positive to COVID-19 yesterday.

Just moments after defending its base from a Burn X Flash siege, Falcon Esports went on a tear and completed a five-man wipe in the 20th minute to finish off the game.

Kenn once again led the way with six kills, two deaths, and 10 assists on Ling anew while Kyaw “Zippx” Zin Bo notched five kills, two deaths, and 12 assists on Harith in the 20-17 win.

Meanwhile, ONIC Esports had a disastrous start after suffering a 12-14 loss to Todak in 16 minutes of game time. Kairi had six kills, three deaths, and three assists on Fanny in the defeat.

The Burmese side led by the former Omega Esports mentor put up a 1-1 standing in Group A while the reigning MPL ID champs lost to Todak in Group B to fall at 0-1. On the other hand, Burn X Flash slid to 0-1 also in Group A.
