In the first game, AP Bren showcased their versatility with the off-meta Gloo pick to counter Cici and Fredrinn.

The pick proved successful as Gloo absorbed most of the damage and created plays to put the Filipino squad in a 5-0 kill lead and a 10, 000 gold advantage within the first 10 minutes of the game.

At the 13-minute mark, Bren found an opening after eliminating Kairi “Kairi” Rayosdelsol‘s Fredrinn and Nicky “Kiboy” Pontonuwu’s Arlott inside their base.

AP Bren took advantage of this opening to counter push ONIC and win the first game.

The same narrative unfolded in the second game with Bren securing a 2-0 match-point lead.

ONIC Esports failed to destroy any towers and found themselves trailing by as much as 10,000 gold.

Bren’s gold laner, Marco “Super Marco” Requitiano, was hailed as the MVP of the match for his commanding 7/1/8 KDA performance on Claude.

ONIC Esports refused to give in easily and clinched their first victory of the series in the third game.

They gained momentum by securing multiple Lord steals and kills. The last crucial Lord capture at the 19-minute mark pushed the series into a fourth game.

In the fourth game, Super Marco chose Beatrix to counter ONIC’s Wanwan and MathildaBarats duo. Bren quickly took control of the early game with multiple kills, putting ONIC on the defensive once again.

The turning point occurred when Albert “Alberttt” Iskandar’s Wanwan stumbled into a bush where a Yesker-equipped Beatrix was waiting.

Alberttt was swiftly eliminated, giving AP Bren the opportunity to capitalize on their advantage and swiftly destroy the remaining turrets to secure victory.
