Thing looked bleak for Among Us in the initial stages of the game after mid player Poomipat "Fearless" Trisiripanit on his Magnus killed Abed Azel L. Yusop’s Storm Spirit a couple of times with a beautiful skewer-into-tower plays. Anti-Mage on the other hand was farming like a madman with the buff from empower. The game was drifting away from Among Us with a 6k lead for Motivate.Trust Gaming till Anucha "Jabz" Jirawong hit a spectacular 4 man Echo slam in the Roshan pit, leading to an Aegis for the very fat Terrorblade. While Abed kept having an average game on the Storm Spirit, 23savage’s Terroblade was an absolute beast carrying the game for Among Us. Anti-Mage could never manfight Terrorblade and Among Us eventually pushed the high ground , securing the megas and the game at 38 minutes.

Motivate.Trust,had a well rounded draft in the second match, focused on pushing in the mid game while Among Us tried out the cheese pick of Phantom Assassin. The laning phase went relatively fightless with both teams farming and getting the initially objectives. As soon as Motivate. Trust Gaming picked up the first important items on their cores, they pushed the tempo taking tier 2 towers.

Though Nuengnara "23savage" Teeramahanon had a considerable amount of farm on the Phantom Assassin, Motivate.Trust Gaming had all the counters to her, winning the game in 36 minutes after a futile attempt by Among Us at the Roshan Pit.
