SMART Omega whips Globe’s Liyab to sweep WR:SEA Icon Series first round

Smart Omega Esports manhandled the Globe-backed Liyab Esports, 2-0, to cap off the first round of the South Luzon group stage of the League of Legends: Wild Rift Southeast Asia Icon Series-Summer Season undefeated, Saturday evening.

Omega ADC Gerald “Taymlaps” Bermundo’s Draven starred in the blowout Game One victory for Omega Esports as he registered five kills and an assist without a death. He is also the top farmed hero in the opener with a total net worth of 16,185.

It was a low-scoring match for both squads, but Omega was able to put almost a 20k gold cushion to dominate the game which lasted for 14 minutes and 59 seconds.

John Lloyd “Impressive” Dela Cruz’s Braum took the spotlight in Game Two, leading the 13-2 Game Two decimation of Liyab Esports to seal the sweep.

The former Arena of Valor veteran finished with three kills and nine assists without a single death in the 11:28-minute match.

A clash on the top lane jungle saw Omega Esports wipe out the entire Liyab Esports contingent. The former then marched onto the middle lane to end the match.

Before the 2-0 sweep of Liyab, Omega scored huge victories over Execration and Sunsparks, respectively, to assert its dominance in the group, yesterday.

Impressive spearheaded Omega Esports’ 2-0 rout of Execration, putting up dominant Jarvan and Camille performances, respectively to give the Smart-backed squad its first victory of the group stage. The former Arena of Valor veteran won both MVP plums in the series.

Omega Esports then followed it up with a 2-1 wire-to-wire victory over Sunsparks, which saw the 1-2 punch of Impressive and JLC pull off a two-against-four skirmish to steal the Baron and seal the series.

Omega Esports is currently at the top of the standings after the first-round robin with an immaculate 3-0 standing followed by Liyab Esports at second place with a 2-1 win-loss slate.

Omega Esports’ 1-2 card put them at the third seat in the South Luzon group stage. On the other hand, Execration came in dead-last after a winless round one.
