Up by one in the series against Geek Fam, the MPL ID Season 8 playoffs MVP locked Miya in the second game to face off against Bima Putra “Schwann” Sejati’s Beatrix in the gold lane.
CW struggled in the early game against the early damage of Beatrix. What’s more, Rupture’s Khufra was constantly ganking him in the gold lane. However, the other members of ONIC Esports were succeeding in their respective lanes, and the team led 8-1 in kills at the fifth-minute mark.
ONIC Esports maintained its dominance, eventually securing the early Lord at the 10-minute mark. The yellow hedgehog squad immediately ran it down in all lanes and successfully pushed the inner towers.
