Day 3 of the PCS summer playoffs has ended! After winning versus Alpha Esports in the first round, Machi Esports advances to the second round of the upper bracket to face Taipei J team.

UB ROUND 2 RECAP:

Taipei J Team vs Machi Esports

Game 1

The first game of the series started out slow. MCX’s better laning phase helped them secure lane priority, leading them to getting three drakes in 17 minutes. Despite getting caught in awkward positions, Koala’s Leona plays and Gemini’s Drake steal helped MCX secure the Infenal soul. Gemini executed the game winning Lee Sin play on Nestea’s Orianna in a crucial battle for the Elder Drake. This helped MCX secure the Elder Drake and close out the game to take the lead in this series, as a result.

Game 2

MCX drafted another pick composition for this game. Meanwhile, JT responded by drafting a hard engage composition. It was only two minutes into the game when Rest’s Renekton was able to take first blood against PK’s Ornn. This gave him the advantage he needed to get top lane priority over MCX. JT’s bot lane performed similarly well, winning the 2v2 matchup. Despite that, MCX’s jungler was still able to secure the first two drakes due to his proactivity and proper prioritization. However, this didn’t stop JT from controlling the game. Their clean execution of their plays allowed them to stretch their lead even more and snowball their way to victory, tying the series 1-1.

Game 3

Roaming attempts from Nestea’s Qiyana didn’t work out as MCX was ready for the early – mid game skirmishes. MCX’s proactivity gave JT a really hard time to make plays around the map. Because of this, MCX was able to secure all the Drakes and Barons uncontested. This led to MCX dominating fights and getting a 13k gold lead. JT couldn’t do anything until MCX cleanly closed out the game, taking the series to a 2-1 score.

Game 4

Game 4 started with both teams drafting a teamfight/pick composition. Rest didn’t have the best time in the top lane as PK and Gemini kept tower diving him, resulting in his Gangplank going 0-2 in under 10 minutes. Compared to previous games, JT were able to secure two early Drakes while MCX went for the Rift Herald and prioritized top lane to further maximize PK’s lead on his Renekton. At the brink of losing the series, Woody stepped up and became the main cause of JT’s winning fights through his Leona’s Solar flares. This led to JT taking the gold lead. Despite that, Gemini stole the final Ocean drake to secure the Ocean soul. This became a huge factor for their win on the last crucial teamfight that allowed them to close out the game and take the series win over JT 3-1. MCX advances to the semifinals and sends down JT to the lower bracket.

This concludes the recap for day 3 of the summer playoffs. You can find the recap for the summer playoffs day 2 here.
