Match 4: Kimochiii Dieux vs. EurasiaSuperfly
|CFS Cонєєᴅ – Ryoma||ESF.Zelle – TeeMee|
|SG Pray – Preyta||ESF.Don – Tulen|
|SG Symmond – Arduin||ESF.Buck – Airi|
|Neex. – Mina||inzaiplays – Lindis|
|Leap. – Zephys||ESF.Jomz – Maloch|
The valiant effort that Kimochiii Dieux put out during the final minutes of the game was not enough to stop the rampage of EurasiaSuperfly in this exciting third game of the Day 5.
EurasiaSuperfly’s inzaiplays played a fantastic Lindis during the early to middle stages of the game as he was able to poke through enemy defenses and kill the enemy heroes one by one while also avoiding heavy damage thanks to the pesky defense and durability of the team’s Maloch and TeeMee.
However, the most impressive play in this game was not from the winning team but from Kimochiii Dieux’s SG Pray (Preyta) as he was able to defend the team’s core while killing 3 enemy heroes alone. After this miraculous play, it seemed liked EurasiaSuperfly loss a little bit of their composure as three of their heroes were killed during the last clash of the game, but Maloch and TeeMee were able to defeat the remaining heroes of Kimochiii Dieux as they win this game with a final score of 16-29.
MVP: inzaiplays (Lindis 9-3-15 KDA, 14.5 MVP)
Match 5: OPPAI GAMING vs. PowerRangers
|OG.Icefrog – Thane||PR Black – The Joker|
|OG.Spådę – Preyta||PR Blue – Airi|
|OG.HuDas – Kil’Groth||Ton. – TeeMee|
|OG.Protector – Maloch||PR Yellow – Jinnar|
|OG.Tee Hee天 – Zill||SG Relax – Zephys|
The fourth game showed why there is “Power” in PowerRangers’ name as they opted to utilize two powerful Warrior/Assassin heroes using an aggressive playstyle. PowerRangers had the advantage when it comes to gold thanks to Airi and Zephys who got 10000+ gold each, a testament to PR Blue and SG Relax’s methodical jungling skills, which resulted to OPPAI GAMING having almost no resources to get gold around the map.
OPPAI GAMING were also unable to answer PowerRangers’ relentless attacks as Preyta, the planned damage dealer for OG, was often the one to die first during clashes. Thane and Maloch could have protected Preyta but they have failed to complete their item builds to make them more durable, which resulted to them having a combined total of 12 deaths.
All in all, PowerRanger’s fast playstyle proved to be effective as OPPAI GAMING failed to initiate any counterattacks and just started to be reactive to the enemy team’s movements during the late stages of the game, resulting to a final score of 25-11.
MVP: SG Relax (Zephys, 9-2-10 KDA, 14.6 MVP)
Match 6: Kimochiii vs. PL LAMIAE
|ⁿ Snow. – Alice||PL Mephisto – Kil’Groth|
|Cyriux – Tulen||PL Creize – Arduin|
|ⁿ Rikun. – Xeniel||PL Zeus – Preyta|
|Off. – The Joker||PL Rias – Kriknak|
|愛 Kei. – Ryoma||PL Vision – Chaugnar|
This game was almost like a picnic for Kimochiii as they were able to pick apart and devour PL LAMIAE with a final score of 14-1.
Kimochiii displayed fantastic teamwork as they would often pressure all lanes simultaenously, forcing PL LAMIAE to always be on defense. The combination of Alice and Xeniel helped the other heroes of Kimochiii gain enough support to be durable in the entirety of the game.
PL LAMIAE was unable to do anything in the game due to lacking enough damage to defeat Kimochiii during team clashes. In the end, this quick game proved that Kimochiii has enough firepower to move to the next round in the tournament.
MVP: 愛 Kei. (Ryoma, 6-0-7 KDA, 15.8 MVP)
