The premier Mobile Legends tournament in Southeast Asia continues. Here is a recap of Day 2’s results.
Match 1: Team Saiyan (MSIA) vs MYA (MSIA)
- In the first loser bracket series of the day, it was a repeat of the Malaysia MSC finals where Team Saiyan face up against a familiar opponent MYA to determine which team will be the first to be eliminated from the tournament.
- In a back and forth series, Team Saiyan managed to keep their composure to take the series 2-1. MYA finish the MSC in 7th-8th Place.
Match 2: Saint Indo (INDO) vs Elite8 Esports (INDO)
- With the series tied at 1-1, Elite8 Esports chose to pick a 2 tank comp consisting of Akai & Franco, this team comp proves to be their downfall, as their lack of damage dealers shows.
- Saint Indo took the series 2-1; Elite Esports secured 7th-8th Place.
Match 3: Salty Salad (PH) vs Solid Gaming (PH)
- In an all-Philippines affair in the winners’ bracket, Salty Salad took revenge for their MSC PH Finals defeat, drafting the Rafaela to good effect once again as they convincingly took the series 2-0.
- Salty Salad guaranteed themselves a top 4 placing in the Grand Finals.
Match 4: IDNS (TH) vs IMPUNITY (SG)
- Possibly the most exciting series of the tournament so far, IMPUNITY race out in both games of the series, leading by as much as 8k gold each game.
- However, IDNS prove they are not a walk in the park and managed to stall both games until late in the game and allowed their marksmen Karrie to take over both games. The team took the series 2-0 and also guaranteed themselves a top 4 placing in the Grand Finals as well.
Match 5: Solid Gaming (PH) vs Saint Indo (INDO)
- Solid Gaming came into this tournament as one of the tournament favourites, but they have yet to live up to everyone’s expectations. Not only did they drop into the loser’s bracket but also suffering a defeat from country mate Salty Salad.
- Despite that setback, Solid gaming displayed a glimpse of their superior macro skills to take the series 2-1 from crowd favourite Saint Indo. Saint Indo secured 5th-6th place.
Match 6: Team Saiyan (MSIA) vs Impunity (SG) – To Be Continued…
- Teams in MSC have realised IMPUNITY’s weakness in the game, which is their unfamiliarity with new hero Harley. Team Saiyan took advantage and secured Harley in the draft, pairing it with the hyper carry Karrie.
- They steamroll the game and took game 1 in convincing fashion. IMP chose to ban out Harley in game 2 and picked Karrie in the process.
- Team Saiyan drafted a “no Marksman” team comp and it was working really well as they went neck-and-neck in kills and gold with IMP until the eventual Lord contesting in the late game.
- ACE with his famous Gatokaca Ult-ed in and stole the Lord right under Team Saiyan’s noses. That steal turned the whole game around as IMP gather around LORD and took game 2 to tie up the series 1-1.
- Game 3 will resume in MSC Day 3.
