Aster.Aries survived a marathon match on Sunday to move into first place in Group B of the OMEGA League: Asia Divine Division tournament.

For The Dream, tied with AA in group play entering the day, won the first map in 37 minutes. But AA, (3-0 match record, 6-3 map record) outlasted FTD (2-1, 5-3) in the second map, which lasted 70 minutes. AA took the deciding third map in 59 minutes.

In another 2-1 match, Execration (2-1, 4-4) topped Cignal Ultra (0-3, 2-6), sandwiching map wins in 38 and 44 minutes around a 43-minute loss in the second map. Execration remained in third place in Group A.

The round robin of the $40,000 tournament runs through Saturday, with the top two teams from each group advancing to the upper bracket of the playoffs. The third-place teams clinch a spot in the lower bracket, with the fourth- and fifth-place finishers in each group squaring off for a spot in the lower bracket.

The last-place team from each group is eliminated. All matches are best-of-three until the best-of-five grand final, scheduled for Aug. 22.
