Talon Esports Dominates EHOME in Final Match, Secures Upper-Bracket Spot
In the first game of the series, all of Talon Esports’ cores had flawless performances with EHOME failing to secure a single kill on them. They dominated the early game with crisp movements and superior laning, pushing them toward an early advantage. EHOME was simply unable to handle the pressure and eventually crumbled in just 20 minutes.
The second game was more of the same with Talon outplaying its opponents right from when the horn sounded. Although EHOME managed to trade somewhat evenly in a few teamfights, the SEA team was never put under any sort of pressure and it easily managed to overwhelm its opponents with superior farm to secure a 2-0 win in the series.
At the time of writing, Talon’s opponents in the next round of the Lima Major are yet to be finalized. The full playoff bracket is expected to be revealed following the conclusion of the Group B’s matches and any potential tiebreakers.
Fellow SEA team Execration has been eliminated from the tournament while, the fate of the other SEA team: Geek Slate hangs in the balance as we head towards the conclusion of the final day of the Lima Major 2023 Group Stages.
