Xorn’s assassin emblem Grock in the MPL MY playoffs was most unusual


Sometimes you just gotta do things your way.

One of Malaysia’s Geek Fam’s most popular players, Xorn is once again in the spotlight for using unique heroes and building up in pro play, this time on the assassin emblem Grock in their MPL MY Season 7 Playoffs series against Team SMG.

In the first match against Team SMG in the lower bracket, Geek Fam picked MY Grock as his last pick before swapping him and giving it to Xorn.

With the Assassin emblem, he chose High and Dry, which increases his damage, and the combat spell Flicker.

While you might see this build ranked, it’s surprising to see a player perform this at the highest level of gameplay in the MPL.

How Xorn effectively played the assassin emblem Grock in the first game

Throughout the game, Xorn’s assassin emblem, Grock, constantly pressured his opponents to try and open the map for his team by scavenging for pickaxes in the jungle.

He was fully involved in Geek Fam MY’s first three kills of the game, grabbing a kill with two assists.

From then on, Grock’s influence was increasingly felt. He was always there for his team and had high kill involvement with a 3/0/5 KDA in the early game.

Thanks to Geek Fam MY dominance, the first game ended in just ten minutes. Xorn earned the MVP for helping his team snowball early on. In terms of equipment, he bought warrior boots, courage mask and antique cuirass.

In game two, Geek Fam MY wasn’t successful when Xorn was on Silvanna, so he resorted to Assassin Emblem Grock in game three.

Xorn managed to disrupt SMG Team’s defense by notching six assists from Geek Fam MY’s first seven kills. The only death in the game happened in the 16th minute when he was hit by Silvanna’s Ultimate.

In the late game, Xorn’s assassin emblem Grock looked for combos with Yve von Dominus. Geek Fam MY caught three members of Team SMG in the bot lane and found two more for a wipe out, securing the 2-1 win of the series.

Of the 14 kills his team achieved, Xorn was involved in 11 with a 78% turnout.

Although Geek Fam MY managed to vacate the first round of the MPL MY Season 7 Lower Bracket Playoffs, they were defeated by MPL MY/SG Season 6 Champion Todak in round two and were eliminated.
