TALON WINS PCS CHAMPIONSHIP
First League of Legends (LoL) entry, first LoL championship in the bag. It’s been a tremendous start for our LoL team after being crowned champions of the 2020 Spring Split in the first inaugural season of Pacific Championship Series (PCS).
Finishing the regular season as the third seed, we headed into the playoffs as the underdogs against our rivals Machi Esports and ahq Esports Club. Sweeping Nova Esports in the opening round of the playoffs, we then took each subsequent BO5 series to the limit to only dropping down to the lower brackets after a close defeat (2-3) in the semifinals.
With excellent veteran play from Candy and Kaiwing, we came away with a 3 – 2 victory to knock out ahq Esports Club in the lower brackets to claim our spot in the finals against Machi Esports once again.
Having not won a game against Machi Esports throughout the season, our new main Jungler, River, displayed phenomenal talents with his Lee Sin to help edge us the victory in the final round (3 – 2).
A massive congratulations to our players Candy, River, Hanabi, Kaiwing and Unified as well as our coaching staff BigFAFA, Saroo, TL on this incredible achievement. Although MSI will not be hosted this year, we look forward going head to head against other regions when we qualify for Worlds.
