Erin Jasper “Yopaj” Ferrer shone in the two-game sweep of OB.Neon, unleashing a 14-2-10 stat line on the Ember Spirit in the opener before following it up with 12-3-13 showing on the Templar Assassin in the series clincher.

It was all Boom in Game 1 as it comfortably cruised to a 37-12 victory to draw the series’ first blood. OB.Neon had the lead the first few minutes but a key pick-offs from Boom allowed the Indonesia-based squad to gain full control.

Boom kept rolling from that point as Justine Ryan “Tino” Grimaldo, who had his free reigns on the jungle, joined the fray using the Templar Assassin and scored an ultrakill to finish with a near perfect 9-1-5 KDA.

Andrei “skem” Ong also dictated the tempo on his Grimstroke with a 3-3-19 performance.

OB.Neon showed some resistance behind the efforts of Tri Daya “Mamang Daya” Pamungkas in Game 2. The Philippine-based esports organization took control for the most part of the second game highlighted by a team wipe on Boom at the 15-minute mark of the match.

Boom, however, showed composure and poise as it contested OB.Neon’s Roshan take at the 30-minute mark of Game 2. Boom prevailed in that huge team fight, taking down four heroes on the side of OB.Neon to turn things around.

Boom Esports went on to complete the comeback and close out the series, 25-19.

Boom is set to have a titanic clash against The International 10 representative Fnatic on Dec. 11 while OB.Neon hopes to bounce back and finally barge into the win column when it takes on fellow winless team Execration.
