This is the conclusion to the MSC 5 Nations Grand Finals recap. Check out Day 1 and Day 2 below:
Game 1: The Continuation Of IMPUNITY (SG) vs Team Saiyan’s(MY) Match From Day 2
- In what could be their final game of the tournament for either team, IMP went all-out in their decider against Team Saiyan, picking a no tank team comp comprising of 2 Assassin, Natalia & Saber.
- This choice certainly caught Team Saiyan by surprise as they were constantly waylaid during fights. Despite giving up the map’s Lord, IMP were able to cruise to victory. Team Saiyan finishes in 5th-6th placing.
Game 2: IMPUNITY (SG) vs Solid Gaming Alpha (PH)
- In this series, IMPUNITY chose to go with their comfort picks, banning Harley and pick the trio of Karina, Alice, & Gatokaca. But Solid Gaming Alpha seems to have this figured out.
- The team used Aurora and Minotaur to great effect and proceeded to nullify the threat of their opponents and allow their Marksman Roger to carry them to the series 2-0. IMPUNITY finished in 4th Place.
Game 3: Salty Salad (PH) vs IDNS (TH)
- In a back and forth series and with the score tied at 1-1, Salty Salad chose to forsake Rafael, a champion who won most of their games this tournament. The Filipino team ended up picking Moskov for the first time.
- One single Lord fight was enough for Salty Salad to take down 3 members from IDNS. With the Lord pushing down the mid lane, they took the series with a 2-1 victory and advanced to the Grand Finals.
Game 4: IDNS (TH) vs Solid Gaming Alpha (PH)
- Realising how dangerous Solid Gaming Alpha was with Roger, IDNS chose to ban away it both times.
- That choice proved to be correct, as Solid Gaming Alpha was playing like a totally different team and thus allowed IDNS to take the series 2-0. Solid Gaming Alpha finishes in 3rd Place for the MSC Grand Finals.
Game 5: Salty Salad (PH) vs IDNS (TH) – Grand Finals, Best Of 5
- After being relegated to the loser bracket by Salty Salad , IDNS were willing to take revenge . And boy, retribution was served in a lopsided affair.
- IDNS brought out Estes for all 3 games and crushed Salty Salad in convincing style winning the MSC Grand Finals 3-0.
- The team won themselves a whopping US$50,000 for their hard work and team effort.
