The Grand Finals of the PCS 2020 Summer Playoffs has concluded! After winning versus Taipei J Team in the Lower Bracket Finals, Machi Esports advances to the Grand Finals to face PSG Talon.

Game 1

The first game of the grand finals started off with both teams drafting standard team compositions. MCX decided to go for long-range engages by selecting the likes of Jhin and Nautilus. Meanwhile, PSG responded with a front to back composition featuring Azir and Graves. PSG was looking strong as they come out ahead during the early game thanks to phenomenal plays by Kaiwing’s Thresh. However, their lead was short-lived as MCX took over through winning skirmishes and finding picks onto the members of PSG. Later on, MCX started a Baron attempt. Given this, PSG tried to contest but unfortunately found themselves in a losing position. As a result, MCX was able to secure the Baron alongside a few kills.  Not long after, MCX decided to set their sights on the enemy base.  PSG tried their best to defend but unfortunately, it wasn’t enough. Gemini’s Lee sin was able to find a great engage as he lands a Dragon’s Rage onto Tank, bringing him beside the entirety of MCX. With that, MCX won the teamfight and goes straight for the Nexus. MCX took first game of the grand finals.

Game 2

Game 2 began with a draft by both teams almost identical to game 1. First blood broke out as MCX perfectly executed a dive onto Hanabi thanks to PK being able to burn Hanabi’s flash in a 1v1 earlier. Due to this, Gemini was able to use his lead to help snowball the rest of his team. However, PSG caught MCX off guard as they went for an unexpected Baron attempt. PSG was able to secure Baron without casualties. This led to the gold lead being equalized. As the game went on, PSG’s lead kept growing further as they were able to grab the second and third Baron. In addition, they were also able to secure the Infernal Soul. Things were not looking great for MCX at that point. But against all odds, MCX miraculously won a teamfight as they found a pick onto Hanabi with Mission’s Orianna landing a game-winning three-man Shockwave. With no one left to defend PSG’s base, MCX decided to go straight for the Nexus and take the series lead 2-0.

Game 3

MCX made a statement just two minutes into the game as Gemini picked up 2 kills after a successful gank onto the bottom lane. Even so, PSG answered back by finding multiple picks onto MCX throughout the early game. Eventually, a huge teamfight erupted in PSG’s bot side jungle with MCX winning the teamfight with a clean ace. Given this, MCX was able to get the lead and constantly get objectives and picks onto members of PSG. It was the contest for the Mountain Soul when PSG found themselves in an undesirable position. MCX found picks onto some members of PSG that helped them secure the Mountain Soul and Baron afterward. With this, MCX decided to head straight for the enemy base. Consequently, PSG found themselves unable to even slow down MCX as they started dropping one by one. As a result, Machi Esports was able to take the Nexus and become the PCS 2020 Summer Playoffs Champions.
