Kenneth “Nets” Barro turned things around in the winner-take-all as he came through with a clutch triple kill on his Wanwan to secure their second win through three games.

Nets, along with Ralph “Rapidoot” Adrales’ Ruby and Stephen “Sensui” Castillo’s jungle Chou, actually survived a four-man gank from NXPE in the final Lord dance as the rookie gold laner managed to unleash the ultimate of his Wanwan just in time to score four straight kills.

NXPE never recovered from there as Onic closed out the series 16-11 with Rapidoot finishing with a 0-2-10 line while Nets ran wild with a 10-1-3 KDA.

Onic actually scored the first point of the series as Rapidoot dictated the tempo on his roaming Grock with perfect initiation and effecting zoning to give Onic’s core players enough farm and kills to quickly reach their power spikes.

Nets benefitted in Rapidoot’s aggression as he got his hands on his core items to spearhead the attack with an 8-1-5 line on the Wanwan. Rapidoot finished with a 2-2-13 KDA while Frince “Super Frince” Ramirez was accurate on his Abyssal Arrows on the Selena with a neat 3-0-9 KDA.

It was all Onic in the series opener as they quickly took a 7-1 lead in the early game and never looked back to take a 16-4 win.

Nexplay Evos though returned the favor in the second game as it secured almost every major objective in the early game, including all of the three turtles and the first two Lords of the match to score a 12-8 equalizer.

The romp however faced a huge scare towards the end as Onic secured the third Lord of the match but failed to capitalized on its as NXPE, behind the efforts of Mariusz “Donut” Tan on the Irithel and Jeniel “Yellyhaze” Bata-anon on the Julian, scored a three-man wipe during that Lord defense before embarking on their own Lord push to take Game 2.
