MVP Project eliminate TyLoo in OT
MVP Project surpassed TyLoo 19-17 on Mirage after overtime, eliminating the Chinese from SL i-League StarSeries Season 3 Finals.
It seemed the Chinese would go on to take over the economy for the next few rounds, but Hyun-Pyo "XigN" Lee stepped up to the plate with a smart 1v3 clutch, helping the Koreans go up 6-1.
Ke "captainMo" Liu's 1v2 in the next round (and a quad kill overall) sparked some life in TYLOO, who went on to grab six of the remaining eight rounds in the half, which also included clutches from Hui "DD" Wu and another from XigN.
XigN played a pivotal part in MVP's victory
The Chinese side equalized the score at 11-11 before MVP broke the streak. However, Jung-Hyeon "rindA" Jeon's squad couldn't string more rounds together as TYLOO took their first lead in the match at 13-12.
captainMo put up five kills over the next two rounds to push his team to 15, but they couldn't turn the three-round lead into a win, as MVP Project climbed back to clinch overtime following a 2v4 clutch by Soo-Yong "kAyle" Jung and rindA in the last round of regulation.
PotM: Hyun-Pyo "XigN" Lee outshone the rest of his team with several big rounds, including two clutches, a 1v3 which helped MVP Project get a lead early and a 1v1 later on in the first half.
