Game One: Falcons Sneyking’s Chen Rules
Our hero Jingjun “Sneyking” Wu showed off his mad skills in game one, taking the reins with Chen and setting the vibe. Falcons’ captain ruled the lanes like a boss.

Quest gave up at 26 minutes after losing their top barracks.
Game Two: Alchemist’s Star Moment

A crucial fight at 18 minutes showed Quest’s firepower. However, Falcons, armed with Level 18 and Black King Bar on Alchemist, turned things around in a mega team fight. With the top barracks down, Stanislav “Malr1ne” Potorak’s power-packed Mantas sealed Quest’s fate. The GG call came, and they took a solid 2-0 lead.
Game Three: Quest Fights Back with Aegis and Banter

The lanes were kinda quiet until an Aegis on Aybek “TA2000” Tokayev’s Windranger added some spice. Technical issues caused a pause, and there was even some friendly banter. When the game picked up again, Quest smashed Falcons’ base, securing their first win in the series.

Game Five: Falcons Close the Deal
In the final game, PSG Quest stuck with TA2000’s Meepo, but Falcons countered smartly with Troll Warlord and Monkey King. ATF’s Doom dominated the lanes, securing key moves.
