EVOS Esports TH Bags First Wild Rift SEA ICON Series 2021 Summer Super Cup Crown
Posted by Yuri Mangahas June 30, 2021

EVOS Esports Thailand survived a thrilling five-game affair with Taiwanese squad ONE Team to come out of Summoner’s Rift as the first champions of the League of Legends: Wild Rift SEA Icon Series 2021 Summer Super Cup. The Thai squad bagged a whooping $25,000 cash prize, while ONE Team received $19,000 in consolation.



A Battle of Powerhouses


It was a well-timed team clash at the middle lane that drove EVOS to hammer the nail to ONE’s coffin.



The champions finished the group stage with an impressive 5-1 streak and outlasted the likes of SBTC Esports and Alliance to earn their golden ticket to the grand finals. On the other hand, ONE Team bested Buriram United and even powerhouse squad Flash Wolves to duel EVOS. 



EVOS opened the finals with a well-rounded draft composed of Camille, Fiora, Ziggs, Kai’Sa, and Braum to stun ONE and draw first blood. However, the Taiwanese team retaliated and made use of Corki and Ezreal to ravage EVOS and secure Game 2. Seeing the strength of the archer duo, ONE ran the two champions again in Game 3 along with Garen, Jarvan IV, and Rakan to contain EVOS within their base and shatter their nexus to take the lead.



Not wanting to let their foes have the last laugh, EVOS regrouped and stole Ezreal off ONE’s hands to trim the Taiwanese squad’s advantage. Moreover, the Thais ran Camille and Galio to build pressure across the map and halt ONE from farming their objectives. It was a well-timed team clash that allowed EVOS to march through the enemy base to force a clincher. With the momentum on their lap, EVOS didn’t waste time and employed Garen to destroy ONE’s hopes of winning the SEA championship.


Not a Lucky Tale for PH


Despite a valiant backdoor play from Team Secret, Cerberus snuffed our local contingents’ hopes in the playoffs.



While EVOS and ONE enjoyed their moments of glory in the finals, the same cannot be said for the Philippine contingents, as both Amihan Esports and Team Secret made an early exit on the second day of the tourney. After taking a commanding lead in the group stage, Amihan bowed out of the playoffs after a decisive defeat from SBTC, who went on to face EVOS at the quarterfinals. 



Team Secret took Cerberus Esports to a five-game showdown in a bid to advance to the quarterfinals. While the local finalists managed to bring the scoreboard to two games apiece, it was the resilience of Cerberus Esports that reigned supreme during the match.



Our local contingents may have gone home unlucky in the Super Cup, but there’s no telling how these rising superstars will grow as the Wild Rift professional circuit continues to take shape
