MSC: RSG PH denies Omega’s core of back-to-back in classic, moves to Finals

KUALA LUMPUR — RSG PH denied Omega Esports’ core of repeating in the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Southeast Asia Cup, 3-2, in the lower bracket finals, Saturday at the Malaysia International Trade and Exchange Center.

With their tournament life on the line, RSG PH stepped on the gas in Game Five, building a 6K advantage as early as the 11th minute.

By the 13th minute, RSG PH has already erased all but one of Omega Esports’ turrets. They eventually sealed the win after a Lord take in the 16th minute.

RSG PH is now assured of a second place finish while Omega Esports ended the tournament in third place.

Despite a four-on-five disadvantage in the final Lord fight of Game One, Omega Esports managed to turn things around by taking out Eman “EMANN” Sangco’s Claude midway into the clash.

Jhonard “Demonkite” Caranto (Akai) secured the Evolved Lord for RSG PH but Renz “Renzio” Cadua (Masha) and Duane “Kelra” Pillas (Esmeralda) served as Omega Esports cleaning crew and completed a four-man wipe that sealed the win.

Omega team captain Patrick “E2MAX” Caidic, who dealt a total of 206,377 damage, led the way with a kill, a death, and six assists in the come-from-behind Game One win in 29 minutes and four seconds.

Game Two went the distance once more. But this time, it was RSG PH who stood out after winning a clash in the 22nd minute. Dylan “Light” Catipon’s Franco was named the MVP with 12 assists and three deaths in the 15-11 Game Two win in 26 minutes and one second.

RSG PH sustained its momentum with Demonkite (Benedetta) securing the crucial Lord in the 19th minute that kick-started RSG PH’s ascent to victory. Emann took charge in the 13-13 win in 20 minutes and 10 seconds with a 7-3-3 KDA line on Karrie.

Not wanting to go down without a fight, the SMART-backed squad, despite losing the final Lord of Game Four, was able to defend their base and pick off Nathanael “Nathzz” Estrologo’ Esmeralda which ultimately sealed them the win.

Dean “Raizen” Sumagui’s Fanny finished with three kills and two assists to pace the 9-7 Game Four win in 22 minutes and six seconds.

The reigning MPL Philippines champion will get another shot at MPL Indonesia titlist RRQ Hoshi in the grand finals tomorrow, Sunday at 5:00 PM.
