ONIC Philippines vs RRQ Hoshi
- RRQ Hoshi picked Esmeralda, Pharsa, Aldous, Roger, and Mathilda. ONIC PH went with Selena, Chou, Lancelot, Yu Zhong, and Harith. Both teams played aggressively from the start as they continuously looked for team fights. The situation was almost equal until ONIC’s Kairi completed his main items on his Lancelot and continuously picked off RRQ’s heroes with the burst damage. With this dominant performance, ONIC PH won this match.
- In the second match, RRQ went with Luo Yi, Esmeralda, Clint, Lancelot, and Ruby. ONIC PH picked Chou, Uranus, Lylia, Ling, and Mathilda. With their poke lineup, RRQ gained a sizeable lead in the early and mid-game. Still, they were not able to capitalize on this as ONIC PH staged a massive comeback. ONIC PH finally won the game by taking the second lord and pushing with it.
- At match point, ONIC PH went with Pharsa, Esmeralda, Harith, Natan, and Natalia. RRQ picked up Luo Yi, Uranus, Aldous, Lancelot, and Khufra. RRQ again gained a good lead with their better hero picks and punished ONIC’s mage-only lineup. Still, they could not finish the game early. ONIC played patiently for 25 minutes and finally came out of their empty base with fully farmed mage heroes. They outplayed RRQ one last time and won the match in the 28th minute.
After knocking down RRQ into the Lower Bracket with a 3-0 clean sweep, ONIC Philippines will move to the Upper Bracket Finals. Another major achievement during this series was that it crossed the 3.18 million peak viewership mark. This broke the earlier record of 3.08 million at the Grand Finals of the M2 World Championship. Thus, M3 World Championship 2021 has become the most-watched Mobile Legends Bang Bang tournament in history. Stay tuned with us as we bring you more updates from the Playoffs Day 6.
