OB.Neon win two tournaments in one day
All-Pinoy team OB.Neon, with a notable stand-in Timothy “Tims” Randrup from TNC Predator, achieved an incredible feat yesterday as they won two tournaments in the span of one day.
Their first objective of the day was to beat Thailand’s Motivate.Trust Gaming in a best-of-five Grand Finals in the PNXBET Invitationals. OB.Neon were confident in their newfound chemistry with Tims playing position 4 and it ultimately helped them capture their first championship of the day after defeating MG.Trust 3-2.

Even though many had thought that OB.Neon’s performance in the second tournament would weaken due to fatigue, they faced their second championship match of the day in the BIX Invitational against China’s Moon Chasers full of energy. OB.Neon made their presence in the Grand Finals known by opening up a 2-0 series lead.
Although the tier-two Chinese team was caught by surprise, they were able to tie the series 2-2. OB. Neon’s exquisite gameplay, however, gave them the edge they needed to take the series and claim their second championship.

Although Tims was just a stand-in, many people noticed that his gameplay was in perfect synchronization with OB.Neon. It would be highly unlikely that they could pry Tims off the hands of TNC but this makeshift OB.Neon team was a sight to behold.
