MSC: SMART Omega boots out Falcon, books date with RSG for finals ticket

KUALA LUMPUR — The Philippines has assured itself second- and third-place finishes in the 2022 Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Southeast Asia Cup after Omega Esports swept Falcon Esports, 3-0, to enter the lower bracket finals at the Malaysia International Trade and Exchange Center, Saturday. 

Omega Esports will get its chance to avenge its loss to RSG PH in the MPL Philippines Season Nine finals. They face each other for the final seat in the MSC finals.

After a long tug of war, the MPL Philippines Season Nine second placer finally got its much-needed break in Game One. It took out Kenneth “Kenn” Hein’s Akai during the Lord fight entering the 26th minute of the contest.

Two separate skirmishes ensued, with Omega Esports completing a five-man wipe to finish the 14-10 Game One win in 27 minutes and 41 seconds.

Renz “Renzio” Cadua’s Esmeralda notched top honors with three kills and five assists without a death. Meanwhile, Patrick “E2MAX” Caidic’s Cecilion delivered four kills, a death, and five assists in the win.

In Game Two, excellent initiations from Dean “Raizen” Sumagui’s Akai and Joshua “Ch4knu” Mangilog’s Khufra sealed the 2-0 advantage for the SMART-backed squad.

Duane “Kelra” Pillas’ Claude led the way with three kills, two deaths, and eight assists in the 14-5 Game Two win. Renzio once again made his presence felt on Esmeralda, registering a 5-1-3 KDA.

Omega Esports then closed out Game Three to secure its spot in the lower bracket finals.

The all-Filipino lower bracket finals showdown will take place later in the day at 7:00 PM.
