MSC: Kelra makes sure Omega lives to fight another day

KUALA LUMPUR — Duane “Kelra” Pillas made sure that Omega Esports will live to fight another day.

The 17-year-old superstar clinched a Savage to power Omega Esports’ come-from-behind 3-2 win over Orange Esports in the quarterfinals of the 2022 Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Southeast Asia Cup at the Malaysia International Trade and Exhibition Centre here.

Facing elimination, Kelra put up a monster Beatrix performance in Game Four and recorded the first Savage of the tournament — the third of his young career and the second one on the hero — to send the game to a do-or-die Game Five.

He finished with a game-high 10 kills to go along with a death and four assists in the 18-4 Game Four win in 14 minutes.

The team then dominated Game Five to complete the comeback from a 1-2 deficit.

With Game One still up for grabs entering the 27th minute, Omega Esports, during team fight near the Evolved Lord, took out Born’s Esmeralda to make it a five-on-four situation.

The team lost Joshua “Ch4knu” Mangilog’s Ch4knu during the clash but Renz “Renzio” Cadua (Dyroth) and Patrick “E2MAX” Caidic (Yve) managed to gang up on Valenz’s Moskov — arguably the most important hero in Orange Esports’ roster — and Minn’s Ruby to continue the blood bath.

From there, Omega Esports also took out Garyy (Fanny), leaving Mann (Kadita) the only one left to defend against a four-man contingent.

Kelra recorded 11 kills, two deaths, and four assists on Beatrix to lead the 26-21 Game One win in 27 minutes and six seconds. Dean “Raizen” Sumagui’s Thamuz had a 4-3-10 KDA line while Renzio had eight kills, six deaths, and eight assists.
