M2 World Championship Group Stage Phase 1
Todak Vs Omega
Omega managed to dominate the sidelines with their aggressive approach in their lanes giving Todak a hard time keeping up with their strategy. The match ended with Omega scoring 2 wins and none of Todak.
Unique Deus Vult vs Burmese Ghouls
Burmese Ghouls went all out securing objectives and winning lanes. Unique tried to step up by fighting to take over the Lord but failed in every team fights. The match ended with Burmese Ghouls scoring 2 wins and none for Unique Deus Vult.
Todak vs Impunity
Todak stood back on their feet after being defeated by Omega Esports and went all out against Impunity. The Combodia team tried their hardest but couldn’t keep up with Todak’s lane pressure. The match ended with Todak scoring 2 Wins and none for Impunity.
Unique Deus Vult vs RSG
RSG is quick and precise with their rotation and secured objectives as fast as the ycan. In the first match, Unique managed to even the odds and took advantage of how aggressive RSG is by luring them out of their safe zones but RSGs drafting was much superior and managed to flip the tides in team fights.
The second match landed on Unique’s side as they took on the aggressive side and managed to destroy all the turrets in RSG’s base. RSG was caught off guard which gave way for Unique to bully them and secure a win.
RSG proved their dominance in the final match when it comes to punishing mistakes made by the enemy team. Unique was way too aggressive and RSG took advantage and used it against the Russian team.
This is probably the most balanced matchups in Day 1. The teams fought hard and pushed each other to their limits.
Omega vs Impunity
Things didn’t go well for Impunity, they couldn’t break a single turret in the first match giving Omega the first win. The Filipino team took no chances and left Impunity with only 4 kills in the second match. Another flawless win for Omega which proves they are no pushovers.
RSG vs Burmese Ghouls
Based on the previous matches, we can say these teams are very aggressive in their games. The match against these two teams was very action-packed.
In the first match, RSG had a hard time keeping up with Burmese Ghouls’ aggressive approach, often losing to team fights which ultimately lead to their turrets falling down and giving Burmese Ghouls the win.
RSG made a comeback on the second match, they managed to secure objectives as soon as possible. Burmese Ghouls had a hard time defending their base as RSG pushed more and more, often bringing the Lord with them.
Both teams switched to being very cautious with their moves in the final match. Burmese got the edge in this match due to RSG losing their chance to secure objectives. After an intense team fight that left RSG Jason as the sole survivor, Burmese Ghouls, with Lord in their side, went all out and pushed the bottom lane which left RSG Jason to defend the base all by himself but there was nothing he could do. Burmese Ghouls won the match with 2 wins and RSG with 1 win.
