Execration however changed the narrative of the second game as they finished the game in 13 minutes.
Ch4knu and the rest of the boys went toe to toe with Blacklist's attacks with their own, eventually targeting Dex Star and Full Clip.
Blacklist attempted to came back in the 12th minute but with damage sustained, Execration countered and slaying three Blacklist members before forcing Aqua and Full Clip to defend and eventually get slain.
S4gitnu's Esmeralda led Execration to a 2-0 sweep as he registered a 5/2/7 KDA.
Execration now took solo lead with 24 points with a 7-5 record while Blacklist dropped to second with 7-5 and 22 points.
