M5: AP.Bren sweeps Lilgun, paves way for Burmese Ghouls’ playoff appearance

AP.Bren played the heartbreakers on Thursday as they swept Mongolian squad Team Lilgun, 2-0, which eliminated them from playoff contention in the M5 World Championship at the EVM Convention Center in Quezon City.

The win by AP.Bren catapulted Burmese Ghouls, who lost their first two matches before taking down Team Lilgun via sweep to close out their group stage campaign, to the playoffs owing to a superior tiebreaker over the Mongolian representatives and Singapore’s Team Flash.

The three teams finished with similar 1-2 cards in the group stage.

According to AP.Bren head coach Francis “Duckey” Glindro, the Mongolian representatives really have great potential but they still need to widen their hero pool, especially in competing in big tournaments such as the M5.

“Medyo paulit-ulit yung draft nila. There’s no surprises at least,” he explained.

“But the boys said that Lilgun is pretty creative. They’re just hindered by the fact that you’re going to play with the best of the best in the world. I think they went a little bit stiff in terms of creating their own identity in this particular tournament,” he continued.

In Game 1, David “FlapTzy” Canon (Paquito) made up for his lackluster opener a day prior as he went on a rampage and finished with a perfect 8-0-2 KDA to spearhead AP.Bren’s lopsided opening win.

Team Lilgun looked rejuvenated in Game 2 and even led by as much as 5k on the net worth until Marco “Super Marco” Requitiano (Claude) scored a double kill during the 17th-minute lord fight that sparked AP.Bren’s comeback.
