The Singaporean crew came back from a 13k gold deficit to frustrate and keep the star-studded Talon winless in two games.

Nigma won a huge team fight which started at the 48-minute mark to turn things around. The Singapore-based team tried to pick off Kim “Gabbi” Villafuerte’s Bristleback near its high ground but was way too tanky to get taken down.

NGX made the chase but Talon reengaged which resulted to a huge, messy team fight. Talon seemed to have the upper hand in that clash but a crucial backline dive from Galvin “Meracle” Kang Jian Wen’s Spirit Breaker paved the way for the rest of Nigma to outplay Talon and take down three of its heroes.

Nigma then needed one more team fight near the river to take out four heroes from Talon and close the series by a hairline 38-37.

Muhammad “inYourdreaM” Rizky carried the load for NGX on the Kunkka with solid 14-2-12 KDA.

InyourdreaM’s performance also spoiled the stellar showing from Gabbi’s Bristleback who finished with a 19-7-13 KDA. Rafli Fathur “Mikoto” Rahman’s 13-5-6 KDA on the Ember Spirit also went for naught.

It was Nigma which drew the series’ first blood with a 34-29 win behind Vincent “AlaCrity” Hiew Teck Yoong’s 16-1-10 line on the Tinker.

NGX, though, failed to close out the series in the second game as Talon retaliated with a 31-6 rout of the Singaporean side courtesy of the dynamic duo of Gabbi’s 10-0-10 score on the Luna and Tal “Fly” Aizik seamless 0-0-15 line on the Bane.

NGX will take on InterActive Philippines next week while Talon will have another chance to make it to the win column when it faces Army Geniuses.
