Omega Esports bounced back from a tough loss against Bren Esports and swept its series match-up against RSG Slate PH, 2-0, in the MPL Philipppines Season 11 regular season, Friday at the Shooting Gallery Studios in Makati City.
The SMART-backed squad, who swept the MPL Philippines Season Nine champion in the first round, was coming off a heartbreaking 1-2 loss against the league-leaders.
Duane “Kelra” Pillas’ Beatrix starred in the Omega Esports’ 11-3 Game One win in just 15 minutes of action, finishing with a game-high six kills — more than half of RSG Slate’s total output — to go along with two assists without a single death.
During the final seige, Dean “Raizen” Sumagui (Lancelot) managed to take down Nathanael “Nathzz” Estrologo (Esmeralda) before Kelra erased Dexter “Exort” Martinez (Valentina) and Dylan “Light” Catipon (Franco) in a massive outplay that put his side in five-against-two advantage during the raid. The team eventually killed John Paul “H2wo” Salonga (Fredrinn) before clearing RSG Slate PH’s base.

RSG Slate PH immediately bounced back in Game Two and notched an 11-5 win in 20 minutes and 46 seconds of game time to equalize the series and send it to a rubber match.
Exort registered six kills and three assists against two deaths on Kadita while Eman “EMANN” Sangco’s Claude tallied three kills and three assists against a death in RSG Slate PH’s bounce back win.
The reigning MSC champion had a rough time closing out Omega Esports despite taking the lead early in the game, Nathzz (Yu Zhong), though, found an opening entering the 20th minute mark and flanked Kelra’s Beatrix over at the top side which resulted to the death of the latter. With their main man out, Omega Esports failed to defend their base as RSG Slate PH claimed revenge to extend the series.
With the scores locked at 1-all, rookie EXP laner Louis Gabriel “Louis” Ariola stepped up when it mattered the most and delivered a 5-2-5 performance on Arlott to help his side take an 11-5 Game Three win after 14 minutes and 39 seconds of action.
Omega Esports moved to the 4-6 in the standings to remain at the fifth spot while RSG Slate PH dropped to 5-4 — still good for third place.
