Fnatic continue to soar in SEA League play

Fnatic continued their rise up the standings of the ONE Esports Dota 2 SEA League on Saturday.

Fnatic tied BOOM Esports 1-1, and with the point earned, moved into second place behind NEW Esports as Week 2 action continued. Fnatic won the first map in 31 minutes, and BOOM salvaged the tie with a 32-minute victory.

The tie for Fnatic follows consecutive 2-0 sweeps over Team Adroit and T1 earlier this week.

In the day’s other match, Neon Esports and Geek Fam played to a 1-1 tie. Geek Fam won the first map in 38 minutes, and Neon cruised to a win in the second in just 21 minutes.

Reality Rift pocketed a victory when last-place Execration forfeited and withdrew from the tournament, citing roster changes.

Execration will take home $2,000 of the $100,000 prize pool. All future scheduled opponents of Execration will be awarded 2-0 victories.

The tournament started with 10 teams from Southeast Asia. Seven teams received invitations, and three teams reached the event through two qualifiers.

The round-robin group stage runs through July 12, with all matches best-of-two.

One additional team will be eliminated during the group stage. The top four teams will advance to the playoffs’ upper bracket, and the fifth- through eighth-place teams will move on to the lower bracket. The double-elimination playoffs will be held July 15-19. Playoff matches are best-of-three until the final, which is best-of-five.

Week 2 play concludes Sunday with Fnatic facing Reality Rift, Neon taking on TNC Predator and Geek Fam meeting BOOM.
