Kelra keeps Omega Esports’ championship bid alive with a Savage kill streak
Omega Esports started strong in the first game of the series. However, Orange Esports was able to bounce back from its early jitters to claim a two-win streak which caught the defending champions by surprise.
With the team’s back against a wall, Kelra pulled off an impressive Beatrix performance in the fourth game of the series and clutched a Savage kill streak before closing the game. This was the first Savage recorded in the entirety of the MSC 2022.
During the final game of the series, Omega Esports kept its momentum going and closed the series with a 3-2 victory to proceed to the next phase of the lower bracket playoffs.
Getting a Savage is just normal for me, says Kelra
Through a post-match press conference, Kelra expressed that he is not surprised that he managed to pull off a Savage kill streak during their match against Orange Esports.
“It was nothing, just simple, It’s like normal for me [to get Savage],” said Kelra.
This is Kelra’s third Savage Killstreak since his debut as an MLBB pro player. With Omega Esports widely known to grow in power when in desperate situations, fans may be seeing more surprises from Kelra in the upcoming matches.
