LAS PIÑAS - Falcons.AP Bren will see themselves in Riyadh one month from now as they book their MPL Philippines Season 13 finals slot at the expense of RSG Philippines, three games to one, on Saturday.

The Falcons completed the MPL-PH delegation for the MSC 2024 after Liquid Echo secured the first ticket yesterday.

It was not smooth sailing for FCAP as they were soundly beaten in the first game by RSG, which saw the debut game of Alpha in the season, 15 kills to just 5.

It was gold laner Clarense "Kusey" Camilo's best game by far as his Claude tallied seven kills and seven assists in the game, while Jonard Cedrix "Demokite" Caranto's Alpha debut game in season 13 didn't disappoint with a 3/1/7 KDA and denied Kyle "KyleTzy" Sayson's Barats any lord takes.

However, Rowgien "Owgwen" Unigo's Mathilda came to play as he delivered 3/1/12 to tie the series at 1-1, with the game almost ended earlier if not for Arvie "Aqua" Antonio defending when the rest of RSG PH were out.

The men in yellow and green took the lead after a 22-minute Game 3, which almost went in RSG's favor if not for Angelo "Pheww" Arcangel's Vexana respawning on time and summoning the Eternal Guard to clear the minions with the base only one hit away.

It was Marco "Super Marco" Requitiano's game for the taking as his lethal Moskov dealt five kills and assisted four more.

RSG fought hard in the fourth, with Nathanael "Nathzz" Astrologo's Benedetta keeping the top lane busy for David Charles "FlapTzy" Canon to defend, but Super Marco's Roger takedown of the EXP Laner and Dylan "Light" Catipon's Minotaur started the end for the Raiders.

With the gold lead now for the Falcons, RSG called for the lord but was denied by FCAP as "The Nature Boy" Super Marco took down three while a split-pushing Nathzz was denied to go back by Pheww's Novaria,

The three FCAP heroes then forced Aqua's Valentina to defend the base to no avail as they wrapped the fourth game and the series in 19 minutes.

Falcons AP.Bren will meet rivals Liquid Echo in a best-of-seven finals series on Sunday.
