Omega Esports took down the Fanny of Nowee “Ryota” Macasa in Game Two to complete the 2-0 sweep against Playbook Esports in the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang: Professional League-Philippines Season Seven, Saturday night.
The win kept Omega Esports’ upper bracket bid alive as they took second place in Group B with 20 points through a 6-6 card.
Playbook went for the unorthodox Fanny pick in Game Two, with Ryota flaunting his mechanical skills in the early game.
However, a shutdown on Ryota, who had four kills in the early game, proved to be too costly for Playbook as Omega Esports secured the Lord to take a huge map advantage.
“Pinaghandaan po talaga namin yung Gloo simula nung last last week pa nung kakalabas pa lang niya, naisip namin maganda siya kasi maganda yung passive niya e saka yung ultimate niya,” said Toshi, explaining Omega’s Gloo picks in the recent games.
Salic “Hadjizy” Imam had a free Granger game in the opener to lead Omega Esports’ lopsided 16-2 win.
Playbook, who put Ryota in the jungler role, struggled all throughout the match which caused the team’s early downfall.
With Hadjizy at full strength, Omega Esports never gave Playbook a chance to turn the game around and sealed the game at 14 minutes and six seconds.
Playbook remained at the fifth spot in Group B with eight points and a 3-9 record.
Omega Esports looks to secure its upper bracket slot tomorrow against defending champion Bren Esports at 7:30 pm while Playbook will end its MPL stint at 3:00 pm against Work Auster Force.
