With Team Liquid’s loss to INTZ earlier in the day, the race for the first seed out of Group A was still up for grabs. In our marquis match of the day, the OPL’s underdogs in Legacy Esports goes up against the Turkish titans in Papara Supermassive.
Despite an early kill taken by İrfan “Armut” Berk Tükek on the Wukong onto Leo “Babip” Romer, Legacy turned an early Rift Herald fight into multiple kills.
The game went back and forth for multiple minutes, but after a dragon fight for the Ocean Dragon, a literal game of Whack-A-Mole(™) ensued as the teams went blow for blow until a Mystic Shot took down No “SnowFlower” Hoi-jong in the pit. It wasn’t until Armut snuck around the backline for the fight to extend outside the pit, but Legacy took down multiple members of Supermassive.
After multiple fights, Quin “Raes” Korebrits earned his tenth kill of the game on Ezreal after picking up a kill at the Baron pit after a hard fought ace. It was this Ezreal that helped carry Legacy to success.
Ultimately, that put a lot of pressure on Supermassive and closed the game out for Legacy (even with a soloed death onto Raes from Bolulu).
With this win, Legacy will move on to face Team Liquid to potentially earn an automatic advancement into the Group Stage.
