The first half of the Mobile Legends Bang Bang Professional League – Philippines Season 5 (MPL-PH S5) Playoffs today featured some thrilling matches, including an epic 50+ minute-long game in the first series. Who’s going home or moving on? Find out in our recap below.
Onic PH vs SGD Omega
The first game of the day ended up being the longest professional game of MLBB to date. Only a few minutes shy of an hour, Onic PH proved their experience and mettle by overcoming SGD Omega’s early game prowess. The former played patiently, defended the pushes while farming their items, and avoided contesting the Lord. As SGD’s Hanzo started to lose effectiveness in the late game, Onic PH gradually reduced the networth gap and baited their opponents into unfavourable team fights.
Game two showed fatigue setting in for Onic PH with their discombobulated draft and execution. On the other hand, SGD Omega displayed that they weren’t fazed by the first loss and closed it out in ten minutes with a well-executed game plan.
However, in the third match, Onic PH played like a revitalized team and demonstrated why they were grand finalist material. Onic PH employed SGD Omega’s own early tactics against them, reversing the spanking they received in game two, and emerged as winners of the series. SGD Omega say goodbye to MPL-PH S5 while Onic PH are one step closer to the grand finals.
Execration vs Blacklist International
Execration look to be on top form today, blasting through Blacklist International in two quick games, doing their best to get the day’s schedule back on track. With an exceptional performance from the whole squad, they showed off what an unchecked Ling can do in game one, and their superior team coordination and movements in game two. Not much to say except farewell to Blacklist International this season. Execration will face off against Onic PH at the lower bracket finals tonight.
