The second day of the M2 World Championship Group Stage has concluded. Groups C and D fought their hardest to get to the higher brackets of the tournament. As expected, the tournament showed intense matches which left audiences at the edge of their seats.
M2 World Championship Group Stage Phase 1 - Day 2
10S Gaming Frost vs Alter Ego
Alter Ego showed the audience what it takes to be a champion and dominated the jungle lanes. Interestingly, 10S Gaming Frost is keeping up with Alter Ego as they managed to even the tides despite the opponent having control of the map. In the end, 10S Gaming Frost failed to close the gap and Alter Ego secured two consecutive wins in the match.
DreamMax vs Evos SG
DreamMax had a hard time dealing with Evos SG. The team often gets stuck in certain places where they shouldn’t be which ended in them being ambushed and wiped out. The Brazillian team forces a fight to happen despite not having the advantage which ended in them getting picked one by one by Evos SG. Evos achieved two wins leaving DreamMax with none.
Bren Esports vs 10S Gaming Frost
Bren minimized their team fights and focused on farming to hit their power spikes as soon as possible. 10S Shina tried so hard to keep up with Bren KarlTzy to prevent the team from falling apart when Bren finally hits their power spike but the pressure was too much. Needless to say, Bren Esports achieved two consecutive wins.
RRQ Hoshi vs DreamMax
DreamMax had a solid plan picking the opponents while they are alone but failed to execute it properly and got punished for it. RRQ was way too ahead in the gold lead for DreamMax in both matches. There was no way DreamMax would be able to stop RRQ from hitting their power spike. RRQ secured two consecutive wins leaving DreamMax with none.
Bren Esports vs Alter Ego
The teams traded kills and managed to even each other out. During the first match, Alter Ego tried to keep up in the early game but fell off in the late game allowing Bren to snowball so hard and win the match.
In the second match, Bren zoned out Alter Ego so hard, that they only managed to destroy one turret from Bren. PAI, Udil, and LeoMurphy tried to go for one last fight but got baited by KarlTzy which gave Bren the opportunity they needed to secure a win and deliver one of the most intense matches in the tournament.
RRQ Hoshi vs Evos SG
This is one of the most balanced matchups in the tournament. In the first match, both teams were able to even the tides. Evos SG managed to close the gap despite RRQ having secured two Lords already. Evos SG put up a good fight but RRQ managed to wipe out the enemy team which gave them the chance to secure a win in the first match.
The second match was very intense as each team traded blows with each other. Every team fight was action-packed and never one-sided. RRQ started a team fight under Evos’ inner mid turret and failed, resulting in Evos pushing forward and secured a win.
In the third match, Evos understood that Lemon is a great threat in the match and so they tried and focus on suppressing Lemon’s progress through ambushes and lane pressure. Lemon used this to his advantage and started going all out and baiting himself to start a team fight under Evos’s inner top turret. Evos took the bait and got punished leaving Aeon as the only member trying to defend the nexus. Aeon couldn’t defend the base and RRQ went for the win.
Day 2 Standing
Bren Esports and RRQ Hoshi dominated Day 2 of the Group Stage. RRQ and Evos showed an amazing performance in the match but RRQ secured the win as they go up in the upper bracket. Two Philippine teams made it in the upper bracket. Will they be able to keep the pace in the next stage? We’ll find out very soon.
