Day 7 of the PCS 2020 summer playoffs has ended! After winning versus Berjaya Dragons in the second round of the loser bracket, AHQ Esports advances to the third round to face Taipei J Team.

ahq eSports vs Taipei J Team

Game 1

The series started out with JTeam drafting a dive composition led by Pantheon and Zac. Meanwhile, AHQ answered by drafting a teamfight comp featuring ultimate synergies with Gnar, Jarvan IV, and Orianna. The game started out with both teams playing safe during the laning phase. Unfortunately, things went wrong for JT during an invade in AHQ’s jungle resulting in first blood and a double kill for Wako. As the game progressed to the mid-game, the two teams went back and forth through constant skirmishes. Eventually, a huge teamfight broke out in the mid lane. JT managed to win convincingly with an ace. As a result, JT was able to snowball this win into a 6k gold lead at 30 minutes. Despite JT’s massive lead, AHQ went for broke with a Baron attempt and JT responded by splitting their members on different sides of the map. They were able to stop the Baron attempt and secure the Infernal Drake at the same time. In addition, they were able to put pressure on all three lanes while they were at it. Later on, JT went for their own attempt and secured Baron. Immediately after, they decided to engage the enemy team. AHQ’s members started dropping one by one as JT headed straight for the Nexus to secure the first game of the series.

Game 2

Game 2 started out with both teams drafting standard compositions but an interesting pick comes out from JT as they drafted Garen for the mid lane. The second game of the series turned out to be chock full of action as both teams were relentless with frequent teamfighting. Eventually, AHQ managed to get an ace over JT resulting in AHQ securing Baron and a 5k gold lead. Because of the massive lead, JT found themselves unable to stop AHQ. After one final teamfight, JT was aced with Wako securing a quadra kill on his Jhin. AHQ takes game 2 tying the series 1-1.

Game 3

JT once again opted for an engage-heavy composition for the third game in the series. Meanwhile, another interesting pick came out, this time from AHQ as they draft Skarner for Kongyue. JT started the game looking strong as Lilv’s Jhin was able to come out of the early game with four kills. Due to this, JT kept snowballing their lead and win fight after fight against AHQ. The game concluded after JT won one more teamfight to secure the Dragon Soul and subsequently, the enemy base. JT lead the series to 2-1.

Game 4

The fourth game of the series started with JTeam playing aggressively in the early game. They went for consecutive tower dives to pressure Ziv in the top lane. Despite this, AHQ was still able to get two Drakes as compensation. However, JT’s lead grew larger as the game went on. AHQ was unable to slow down JT’s snowballing and was losing control of the game. For that reason, JT won each fight more and more convincingly and they eventually took the game, winning the series 3-1.  JTeam advances to the loser’s bracket finals and knocks AHQ out of Worlds contention.
