Match of the week – Liyab Esports (PH) vs Nova Esports (TH)
The El Clasico of SEA match between Liyab Esports and Nova Esports lived up to expectation in a closely contested fight. Both teams traded back and forth in skirmishes throughout the early and mid-game, but Liyab Esports contested an early 4-man Baron attempt by Nova Esports resulting in a teamfight to send Nova scrambling for safety and secured the Baron for themselves. That fight shifted the balance of the game in favour of Liyab before ultimately sieging the Nexus for their third PCS victory.
Player of the week – LYB Doedoii
Liyab’s Jungler Doedoii helped to secure 4 drakes for his team in a match against archrivals Nova Esports, executing mechanical plays with precision. His highlight play featured him on Lee Sin performing a Dragon’s Rage kick, resulting in a three-man knock up that won the teamfight. This allowed Liyab Esports to secure the Baron before they sieged Nova Esports base for victory.
