However, the dark horse spirit of Falcon emerged after holding their base down in the 20th minute. In a crucial clash, the team popped off, clearing an equally-clinical bloodbath with RSG, the team tipped the scales, and took the advantage.

Taking a Lord advantage, the Falcon marched towards RSG’s base, sitting on a 3k gold lead. However, the equally proud RSG PH defended their base with their playful mechanics.

In the minute 23, RSG PH tried to end the game with a sneaky Lord take. However, the plans were stomped easily after Falcon once again equalized a team fight at the bottom lane, winged by their ‘crazy driver’ on Justin’s Johnson.
