“I learned a lot from [OhMyV33NUS] ever since we fought against them, including the playstyle. Of course, [OhMyV33NUS] is very well-known when it comes to supporting playstyles. They scored multiple championships so [OhMyV33NUS] is the one I keep an eye out for when it comes to that sort of playstyle,” E2MAX explained.
Omega Esports’ iconic gold laner Grant "Kelra" Pillas echoed on their team captain’s statement. According to him, the team definitely studied how Blacklist International played around OhMyV33NUS’ playstyle.
