SMM Day 2: Top Four Pinoys
posted by Jaywalker, 155 days ago
Day 2 of SMM 2012 has concluded, and after a day of intense knockout matches all four Pinoy teams survived and will occupy the top four places in the tournament.
The day went extremely well for all four Pinoy teams, as many top teams found themselves mercilessly decimated by the quick and aggressive playstyle that the Pinoy teams executes to perfection.
It was a tough day for Thailand as both MiTH.Trust and iDeal-Gigabyte were quickly eliminated despite their best efforts.
In the winner's bracket final, Pacific.Emaxx showcased the strengths of Skywrath Mage against fellow countrymen Mineski. The hero's long range stun along with his powerful nukes proved too much for Mineski to handle. With their win, Pacific.Emaxx secures themselves a spot in the grand final. Mineski's hopes for the championship remains alive and they will continue their battle in the loser's bracket.
In another match, Invasion put up a valiant effort against iZone-Gigabyte through aggressive early play. Their plan seemed to work well for the Malaysians initially, but iZone bounced back strongly with impressive plays from Visage and Queen of Pain. With a few careless mistakes, Invasion were unable to recover and became yet another casualty of a Pinoy assault.
Malaysia's last hope, MUFC eSports suffered a similar fate as they found themselves overwhelmed by Dreamz.Ledion.
Dreamz will play iZone tomorrow, with the winner going up against Mineski in the best of three loser's bracket final. Pacific.Emaxx awaits in the best of three grand final.
Be sure to tune in tomorrow for the last day of SMM 2012, although it's safe to say that we could have a Pinoy team winning. Bus yan!
