OMG closed out Week 6, Day 4 of the League of Legends Pro League with a harrowing 2-1 series win over Newbee on Sunday in Shanghai.

OMG (5-5, 12-12 match record) started Game 1 on a high note, losing first blood but picking up a 2-for-1 in that same fight to earn an early gold lead. After a chaotic and scrappy mid game where Newbee (3-7, 10-16 match record) couldn't gain any ground on OMG's gold lead, OMG rushed a Baron kill at 29 minutes, giving it the edge it needed to crack open Newbee's base. With AD carry Han "S1mLz" Jin's Ziggs dealing a game-high 23,900 damage to enemy champions, OMG had all the tools it needed to take the win home, picking up a clean 5-for-0 ace after securing a four-stacked Elder Dragon en route to a 41-minute win.

After a meandering performance in Game 1, Newbee bounced back in Game 2 after an early skirmish over practically nothing at two minutes went 3-for-3, sending four people to the bottom lane to pick up two kills. Newbee AD carry Lin "Lwx" Wei-Xiang had a big time performance as Ezreal, picking up a triple kill in the top lane to solidify a 4,000-gold lead for NB. Picking up a quadra kill at 24 minutes as NB secured a Baron kill, Lwx was popping off too hard for OMG to handle, dealing a massive 28,800 damage while earning a 10/3/4 KDA (kills/deaths/assists) for 70 percent kill participation in Newbee's 31-minute Game 2 win.

In the biggest fiesta of the series, Newbee was in control early thanks to mid laner Yu "Cool" Jia-Jun's Twisted Fate, picking up early kills with uses of Destiny/Gate to roam across the map. Newbee tried too hard to push its lead, however, resulting in a 4-for-0 teamfight win for OMG at 17 minutes. Picking up three Mountain Drakes and a Baron kill by the 30-minute mark, OMG rocketed ahead of Newbee thanks to S1mLz, whose Jhin play helped OMG rise above the chaos storm of Newbee. Securing a charged up Elder Dragon, second Baron buff, and several inhibitor kills throughout an extended late game, S1mLz's flawless 12/0/13 KDA for 83 percent kill participation put OMG too far ahead to fail as he picked up a quadra kill in a final 5-for-0 ace to give the Dark Lords of the LPL the 46-minute win.

OMG face stiff competition in Team WE on Saturday at 1 a.m ET, followed by Newbee, who square off against LGD Gaming right afterwards at 4 a.m ET.
