SMART Omega bows out of M2 World Championship

Smart Omega Esports’ sensational run in the M2 World Championship has come to an end, Saturday afternoon.

The Filipinos suffered a 2-0 beating at the hands of Indonesia powerhouse Alter Ego in the lower bracket playoffs at the Shangri-La Hotel in Singapore.

Alter Ego’s Yam was sensational in the opener, putting up a clean 8-0-6 slate with his Harith. Omega Esports had no answer to Yam’s performance, dropping the match in 14 minutes and 42 seconds.

Hadjizy (Ling) had two kills, a death, and three assists in Game One while Kenji’s Chang had a kill, three deaths, and three assists in the gold lane.

Meanwhile, Celiboy added six kills, two deaths, and nine assists with Roger for Alter Ego while Udil’s Mathilda had two kills, a death, and 11 assists.

Omega fought back a bit in Game Two, with KurTzy’s Karrie pulling a triple kill in the end game to give the Smart-backed squad a breather.

However, a crucial initiation from Yam’s Yu Zhong at the bottom lane helped Alter Ego complete a four-man wipe of Omega. Heath (Tigreal), who was the only player who survived the siege, tried to defend their camp but was overwhelmed by Alter Ego.

Hadijzy, who was playing against an Alter Ego lineup built to counter his Yi Sun Shin, was limited to 0-5-3. KurTzy, meanwhile, was responsible for three of Omega’s five kills. He also had three deaths and an assist.

On the other hand, Yam had four kills, two deaths, and five assists while Celiboy (Benedetta) had five kills, a death, and four assists.2021-M2-World-Championship-Alter-Ego-def-Omega-Game-Two SMART Omega bows out of M2 World Championship ESports Mobile Legends MPL-PH News  - philippine sports news

Game Two lasted for 13 minutes and 28 seconds.

Omega Esports swept Group B with a 2-0 standing for the upper bracket slot before losing to RRQ via sweep which sent them down the lower bracket.

Omega will be settling for a respectable fifth-sixth place finish while Alter Ego will await the winner between the BREN Esports-Todak match in the lower bracket finals later in the day.
