Both teams had interesting lineups for the first game. Esto Dignus Esports opted to go for a very safe lineup with Arthur, Thane, and Maloch in the frontline. On the other hand, Origins.Dominions had an aggressive lineup with Lauriel, Superman, and Ryoma.

Origins.Dominion had a very aggressive start, rotating in other lanes and finding weak spots as much as they can. The aggressiveness paid off, as they got the first blood in the Abyssal Dragon lane. Their gameplan backfired however, as Esto Dignus Esports answered back with a 5-0 beating.

It was then Esto Dignus Esports who controlled the flow in the mid game by slicing through the squishy heroes of Origins.Dominion. In the 13th minute mark, a clash ensued in which Origins.Dominion won the fight. They got the Dark Slayer and immediately pushed in the AD lane to try and finish the game.

They overestimated the opposing team and was unable to push the towers to their core. Esto Dignus answered back by rallying together and fighting them as a team. In the 20th minute mark, both teams fought for the control of the second Dark Slayer which Esto Dignus Esports captured along with a kill. With the huge advantage, they pushed towards the middle and ended the game in a slugfest, 28-17.

In the second game, both teams had a team composition that is dependent on their marksman. MYT had Slimz while Zero Gravity showed off their Lindis. MYT had a tankier lineup while Zero Gravity opted for a more offensive option.

MYT maintained their aggressiveness by rotating in large numbers and capturing objectives. They got their break in the three minute mark with a kill on Zero Gravity’s Lauriel.

It was not enough as Zero Gravity kept on getting good looks in team fights despite the great initiations from MYT. Despite the bad start that MYT had, they still maintained their gameplan and still focused on their rotations and picking mispositioned heroes.

It was a back-and-forth game in the middle stages of the game until a team fight happened in the DS lane in the 13th minute mark which finally gave the momentum to MYT after a staggering 3-0 clash.

MYT’s Lu Bu was also split pushing in the DS lane that time which resulted in the destruction of the high ground tower. In the 13th minute mark, MYT had captured the Dark Slayer and a 4-0 fight. They immediately pushed in the middle lane to capture the game, 17,13.

The final game was between two veteran teams who already have a name for themselves in the MSP region, Esto Dignus Esports xD and Myth Esports. Both teams had the standard tournament lineup that consists of Lauriel, Alice, Zephys, Maloch, etc.

It was intense in the first few minutes of the game, as both teams traded kills and objectives. No one clearly had the lead and it was anyone’s ball game. Esto Dignus got the slight lead after a series of skirmishes which proved to be an advantage from them since they have long range initiators such as Xeniel and Maloch.

despite the lead that Esto Dignus had, Myth Esports utilized the damage output of their team and decided to split push. It worked as MYT’s Lu Bu destroyed the DS high ground tower as the rest were engaged in a team fight.

In the 15th minute mark, MYT had another huge break after Lu Bu continued to push the AD lane and killed Esto Dignus’ Xeniel who was defending the high ground tower. After Xeniel’s demise, the rest of Esto Dignus had to retreat from a team fight in the other side of the tower to defend the DS lane.

MYT managed to follow the enemy team and killed off Esto Dignus’ members one by one. After the side towers were destroyed and the base was vulnerable, Myth Esports shoved towards the core to win the last game of the day, 19-22.

Winner: Myth Esports
MVP: MYT•Slapstick (Kriknak, 8-2-9 KDA,13.6  MVP)
