LG Esports is banking on a weekend of A games in Hearthstone and League of Legends to keep their title hopes alive this season.
Both of LG Esports players may have gotten a safe passage through the first round, but Rafael “useSplash” Evangelista knows his next match won’t be as smooth-sailing.
“I could tell from my games against Aurelious that he got super unlucky,” he said. “If anything, I’d expect a tougher challenge from RedStattik.”
Tomorrow’s match will tell whether Eric “RedStattik” Delos Reyes succeeds in avenging his schoolmate Aurelious, or if useSplash solidifies his moniker as a Golden Eagle-slayer.
The next match will pit Elite Series Philippines Top 8 finisher Justin “Dippy” Ngkaion against Valiant Esports star Sian “Zells” Dela Cruz.
A make-or-break match against their Katipunan rivals awaits LG Esports this weekend.
With a win, they either secure a first seed finish or force a three-way tie. Lose, they bow out of the tournament and gift the top spot to Oblation Esports.
LG, however, are unfazed by the daunting task ahead.
“We don't believe in the Shaymie buff. We have to play our best to deserve that playoff spot,” said Marc “Siopao” Yang. “It's time to crush UPD's hopes and dreams.”
“99.99% chance dudurugin namin UPD. If kami matalo, nag-lie kami,” Franz Penilla added.
