MSC: Omega eliminates EVOS SG, climbs second rung of lower bracket


KUALA LUMPUR — Omega Esports opened its lower bracket campaign with a masterful performance against EVOS SG, 3-0, in the 2022 Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Southeast Asia Cup, Thursday at the Malaysia International Trade and Exhibition Centre here.

This is the MPL Philippines Season Nine second placer’s first playoff win. They also eliminated Singapore’s last representative in the tournament.

A game away from sealing the sweep, Omega Esports caught EVOS SG taking the Lord where they scored a five-man wipe in the 14th minute.

Dean “Raizen” Sumagui (Ling) had the chance to close out the series but lost a couple of minions, allowing the Singaporeans to defend.

The team secured the Evolved Lord in the 22nd minute before going for the death push to finish the match.

Raizen starred in the 20-11 Game Three win in 20 minutes and 11 seconds, finishing with a game-high seven kills to go along with six assists and a death.

Omega Esports’ macro game was on point in the opener, securing all three Cyroturtles and the first two Lords to establish an almost 10K gold advantage late in Game One.

EVOS SG, though, managed to cut the lead to just 6K after Gear (Akai) caught Patrick “E2MAX” Caidic’s Valentina in a skirmish that also saw the team take out Duane “Kelra” Pillas’ Irithel.

The SMART-backed squad stopped the bleeding with a five-man wipe in the 17th minute.

Kelra spearheaded the 13-6 Game One win with six kills, a death, and two assists while Joshua “Ch4knu” Mangilog’s Natalia had four kills, two deaths, and two assists.

Omega Esports sustained its momentum in Game Two, once again taking a huge advantage, 9K to be exact, in the 14th minute to bury the Singaporeans.

The team then secured the Enhanced Lord in the 14:25-mark while also taking out Du Jing Yun “Nick” Nicklaus (Grock), Adam “Adammir” Chong’s Beatrix, and Gear (Benedetta) to take a quick 2-0 lead in the series.

Ch4knu’s Chou was named the match MVP with two kills and 14 assists without a death in the 23-7 Game Two domination while Raizen’s Lancelot ended with a 6-1-10 KDA line.

Next up in Omega Esports’ lower bracket tour is the loser of the RSG PH-Orange Esports match on Friday at 6:00 PM.
