Day 1

The games for day one started off amazing, minus the issues with the Facebook stream. ESL One Genting 2018 was off to banger, with almost every match having a game changing team fight as teams played their very best to avoid dropping to the lower bracket.

Fnatic secured their game by mowing down compLexity’s Slardar, Omni, and mid lane tier two.

Team Secret continued their hot streak by tearing Planet Dog in half, tower diving one side to secure two kills while pushing down another lane – securing a third kill in the process.

Lazada Malaysia

Virtus.Pro’s No[o]ne schooled SG e-sports with a classic display of Puck, perfectly timing his phase shifts in the SG jungle to survive a 5-on-1 assault.

Lazada Indonesia

The illustrious Dendi returned to Malaysia with Na`Vi for a second time, tearing up Evil Geniuses with his Tinker. However, it was Sonneiko who truly impressed us yet again with a subtle yet brilliant performance on Ancient Apparition, ending the match

Mineski’s Mushi is one of those esports players that people either love or hate. One of Malaysia’s great players, Mushi’s Terrorblade had the highest farm for the longest time during the match against TNC. Sadly, no amount of farm was going to save Mineski as TNC’s Timbersaw and Dragon Knight were unstoppable in the hands of Raven and Kuku.

Young Eleven showed us that yes, you can throw your problems away as he tossed 3 SG e-sports players back at each other during an attempted gank on him – making for possibly the funniest play of the day.

Day 2

Day two has been blast with many flashy and memorable plays. For example, a pro player actually could be seen Meteor Hammer!

Mineski knocked out LFY in a surprise 2-0 smash and grab over TI7’s 3rd place finishers. Hello, January curse.

PENTA Sports took a map off the resurgent EG, losing 2-1 after a valiant display. Sadly, Arteezy’s Sven proved to be too much for them to handle, as he finished Game 3 with an impressive score of 9-0-4.

VGJ Thunder’s Yang landed a massive triple ravage combo with the aid of a Refresher Shard & Refresher Orb, disabling compLexity’s entire team & sealing their fate. I probably would’ve just ragequit instantly if that happened to me.

In the same game, compLexity’s Moo landed a comically long Timber Chain, saving himself from a highly aggressive VGJ Thunder rotation.

Arguably the best play of the day, Team Liquid’s KuroKy perfectly timed a Meteor Hammer to stun multiple Na`Vi heroes – arguably the first time a Meteor Hammer has been used this way in a competitive game.

VG.Ori’s Death Prophet executed a 4 man kill, allowing his team to advance and claim mid rax during game 2.

Day 3

While Day 3 had less clippable moments than the previous days, it was by far the most intense. Constant multi kills and massive teamfights were on the menu this day, with the teams jousting for seeded spots in the Semi-Finals.

EG kicked off the day with a solid 2-0 over TNC featuring Storm Spirit played by…Arteezy?

We think the result probably had something to do with 1437’s “hand injury” though.

Na`Vi defeated local favorites Mineski 2-1 in a hotly contested series, as Mushi & co found themselves eliminated despite an impressive performance in Game 1. We’re personally not too sure about the hero drafted for iceiceice in Game 3, though.

VG found themselves squaring up against VGJ Thunder for the second time at ESL One Genting, taking the series 2-1 after a massive teamfight that left GoDz doing his best Owen Wilson impression.

In their second match of the day, EG found themselves facing Na`Vi again, in ESL One Genting’s second rematch of the tournament. This time, EG gave no quarter as they mercilessly dismantled Na`Vi in a manner described by ODPixel as “An Absolute Stomp”.

Team Secret faced off Virtus Pro in what was guaranteed to be a thrilling encounter. Team Secret narrowly edged Virtus Pro in Game 1 before sealing the win with a dominant performance in Game 2.

The final matchup of the day saw TI7 champions Team Liquid going head-to-head with TI7 Runner-up Newbee. An intense series full of brilliant plays, the two teams went back-and-forth as they battled it out to top their groups.

A particular standout moment from the Liquid-Newbee matchup was a marvelous 6-man wipe by Team Liquid, allowing them to top their group – placing them in prime position to set up a mouth-watering final against the in-form Team Secret.
