During the first game, Evos started strong with their Diggie strategy. The M1 Champions went very aggressive which punished Bigetron very hard. However, RENBO with his Chang’e always came in clutch in team fights putting Bigetron back on their feet.

EVOS won game four in a clutch situation.
In the fifth game, EVOS went very aggressive with Antimage delivering intense pressure around the map. Bigetron went to a much safer lineup and played passively through the game.

EVOS took this opportunity to end the match and secure the third win.

At the 11-minute mark, Bigetron tried to go for one last fight but was caught off guard with Antimage’s three-man knock-up with his Paquito.
