MPL: Renzio, Kielvj checks Nets late as Omega forces tie for pole

Omega Esports forced a tie at the top spot after handing ONIC PH its second consecutive loss, 2-0, in the second round of the MPL Philippines Season 10 regular season, Saturday at the ICITE Auditorium.

The SMART-backed squad (8-5) jumped to the number one spot, tying Blacklist International (7-4) with 22 points apiece.

“Nung unang nakalaban namin yung ONIC, sabi ko parang may kalaban kami sa MPL kasi alam namin nung first half kami yung pinakamalakas pero sabi ko tignan natin sa second half kasi ang lakas ng ONIC e,” said Omega Esports technical coach Jomie “P4kbet” Abalos.

With both teams scrambling to get the 30-minute Lord of Game One Kenneth “Nets” Barro (Melissa) pulled up a familiar trick from his sleeve and went straight down the bottom lane to try and finish the match.

Renz “Renzio” Cadua (Fredrinn) and Kiel VJ “Kielvj” Hernandez (Valentina), though, arrived on time to prevent Nets’ Hail Mary play.

On the other end of the map, Duane “Kelra” Pillas (Claude) chased Frince “SUPER FRINCE” Ramirez (Nana) from the Lord pit to ONIC PH’s base. But after realizing that Omega Esports’ minions were already inside the opposing side’s camp, Kelra immediately left the ONIC PH support alone and went for the push instead.

Kelra topped the game with a game-high 12 assists while Deomark “Mikko” Tabangay (Ruby) delivered 11 assists laced with two deaths in the 12-6 Game One win in 30 minutes and 43 seconds.

Omega Esports then took the objective route in demolishing ONIC PH in Game Two, 4-2, in 14 minutes and 32 seconds of action. Kelra once again led the way with three kills, a death, and an assist.
