RSG, Bren, ECHO secure places in Snapdragon playoffs

Filipino squads RSG PH, AP Bren, and ECHO all punched their tickets to the playoffs of the Snapdragon Pro Series Season 3 SEA – Challenge Finals last Wednesday.

The Raiders fended off EVOS Icon in three games, 3-1, while the reigning MPL PH champion got the better of MPL Cambodia champion Burn X Flash, 2-0, and swept its way to the second spot in Group A.

Jhonard “Demonkite” Caranto’s Martis took charge in Game 1, but Erland “Douma” Saptura’s Bane stepped up to the challenge and gave EVOS Icon the opportunity to tie the series after Game 2.

Both teams struggled throughout Game 3 until Dylan “Light” Catipon was able to catch Douma (Beatrix) in the final skirmish over at the Lord pit, which led to RSG PH securing the victory.

Meanwhile, the Aces Pro-backed squad ended its group phase campaign with a 4-1 record, clinching the lone upper bracket slot in Group B.

Rowgien “Owgwen” Unigo’s stellar performance on Grock made it possible for AP Bren to secure Game 1, but Bigetron’s persistence and durability allowed them to reverse the series, 1-2, and hand the Filipino team its first loss in the tournament.

BREN Esports bounced back and capped its group stage campaign with a 2-0 win over Aura Fire.

RSG PH, along with AP Bren, will head straight to the upper bracket semifinals.

Meanwhile, Kairi “Kairi.” Rayosdelsol and coach Denver “Yeb” Miranda’s ONIC Esports will go up against fellow Filipinos Michael “Arcadia” Bocado, Red “Super Red” Bordeos, and Archie “Pancake” Guevarra’s Yoodo Red Giants in the upper bracket quarterfinals.
