Biggest Upset in MSC as SYS Sweeps ONIC Indo, Even Without Coaches

What scenarios will result in FNATIC ONIC getting eliminated from the MSC?

Cambodian esports team See You Soon (SYS) defied the odds today in Riyadh after beating one of the most feared MLBB squads in the world, FNATIC ONIC (Formerly ONIC Esports of Indonesia). And SYS did it without coaches. SYS has two Filipino imports, Michael Endino, aka MP the King, who plays jungler for the Cambodian team, and Kennt Anthony Baesa aka Souuul, who plays gold laner, while FNATIC ONIC is led by Filipino jungler Kairi Rayosdelsol and Filipino Head Coach, Denver Miranda aka Coach Yeb.

Audience guess was 82% in favor of the Indonesian powerhouse, which has four consecutive MPL-ID championships and two MSC titles. But the audience had reason to vote in favor of ONIC: the Cambodian squad was severely handicapped, reeling in from several penalties they incurred because of in-game violations they committed during their match against Malaysia’s Selangor Red Giants the previous day. Those violations cost the Cambodian squad $2,000 in fines (roughly P117,000) and the banning of their coaching staff for four matches.

“SYS Coaching Staff cannot be present at the venue during the teams’ remaining MSC 2024 matches,” MOONTON wrote in a release.

That meant the players are left to fend for themselves in their most crucial stages at the MSC as they face off against Southeast Asia’s most formidable teams in their group.

On game day, SYS came out on top as they beat FNATIC ONIC 2-0, sending Indonesia’s best bet at the MSC on the brink of elimination. With its victory, SYS is in a better position to come out on top of their group.
