Omega Esports advanced to the next stage of MPL Season 8 Playoffs at the expense of Echo, 3-1, on Thursday evening.
Mostly composed of MSC 2021 champions in Raizen, Ch4knu, E2MAX, Renzio, and Kelra, Omega never allowed Echo’s KurtTzy, Rafflesia, Bennyqt, Rk3, and Hadess, to ride their momentum as soon the match went to Game 4.
Brandishing a double fighter draft of Khufra, Thamuz, Lancelot, Yve, and Aldous, Omega was aggressive throughout the game though Echo’s Paquito, Mathilda, Chou, Yu Zhong, and Yi Sun-Shin were able to hold their own in the early going.
Omega asserted its mastery over its rivals as the ever-reliable Ch4knu and his trademark hero Khufra caught Mathilda and Chou in the middle with Tyrant’s Rage, giving Aldous and Lancelot an easy kill each at the 9:34 mark.
Smelling blood, Omega went for the kill as the squad made a GG push with lord killing two Echo heroes along the way.
The victory gave Omega the ticket to faceoff with defending champion Blacklist International in a rematch of the MPL Season 7 and MSC 2021 finals on Friday at 6:00 p.m.
