OMEGA League: Asia Divine Division continued today with two lower bracket elimination series as only four teams would remain in the event by the end of the day’s action.
Yesterday saw Aster.Aries drop their first series in OMEGA League: Asia Divine Division as Neon Esports pummeled them into the lower bracket – registering a 16-minute game one as the Chinese squad had no answer to their aggression. Their opponent today would be Execration as both teams fought for their tournament lives. Although Aster.Aries had been unbeaten in the group stages of the event, and were going up against a team which struggled in the early stages of the tournament, they did not register a single victory when it came to the playoffs.
Having come through the Open Qualifiers, Execration were able to continue their tournament in the lower bracket, taking down their third directly invited team in succession – Team Blaze and Reality Rift being the first two. With that, they moved themselves into the top four of OMEGA League: Asia Divine Division, with their next lower bracket opponent being decided in the next series.
EHOME.Immortal were one of two teams that were directly invited to the event remaining, with the rest being those from Open qualifiers. Alongside this, they were also one of two remaining Chinese teams in the event – with the other being their opponent today, For The Dream. When last the two teams met in the group stage, it was FtD who took a fantastic 2-0 victory, but this time it would be much closer as EHOME.Immortal found a strong game one win before FtD tied things up and took us to a decisive game three.
Although EHOME.Immortal seemed to be down and out after a poor group stage run, they redeemed themselves today as the final game was near perfect from the squad. By the half hour mark, they held a 30,000 net worth lead and a few minutes later the GG call came from their opponent. With that, For The Dream are eliminated from OMEGA League: Asia Divine Division, leaving only four teams now to battle for the prize pool of $40,000.
Tomorrow will see more action from the event as Execration and EHOME.Immortal battle for their tournament lives followed by the upper bracket final between 496 Gaming and Neon Esports.
