BOOM.Rivalry bagged the Dota Pro Circuit Southeast Asia 2021-2022 Tour 1 championship after taking down T1, 3-1, in the regional finals on Sunday night.
The Chai “Mushi” Yee Fung-coached squad went all out in Game Four, pouncing on the Karl “Karl” Jayme-less T1 to seal the deal with a dominant 29-12 victory in 36 minutes and 30 seconds.
Mc Nicholson “Mac” Villanueva (Leshrac) caught Gabriel “Skem” Ong’s Bane after BOOM Esports secured the Roshan. That initiation, however, proved to be the end for T1 as BOOM Esports managed to take out everyone except Kim “Gabbi” Villafuerte’s Phantom Assassin, who was saved by Carlo “Kuku” Palad’s (Legion Commander) Press the Attack.
Kuku bought back to help Gabbi defend but the five-man BOOM Esports was too much for them to handle.
Erin “Yopaj” Ferrer played Godlike on Lina, capping the game with 19 kills and five assists against two deaths. Timothy “Tims” Randrup added a game-high 21 assists on Windranger while Skem had 16 dimes.
Boom also won 250 DPC points to go along with P2,543,500.
T1, meanwhile, gets 130 DPC points and P1,271,750.
On the other hand, Gabbi had four kills, five deaths, and five assists while Kuku was held to just a kill, seven deaths, and four assists.
T1 missed the services of Karl in Game Four after experiencing connectivity issues. He has been dealing with the issue ever since the start of the series.
Yopaj’s Kunkka outshined Karl “Karl” Jayme’s Lina in the opener as BOOM Esports grabbed a lopsided 30-5 Game One win in just 30 minutes and 11 seconds of play. The former OB.Neon star posted a perfect 16-0-9 KDA line to lead his team to an early 1-0 advantage.
BOOM Esports continued its surge in the second match, bagging a quick 17-3 win in just 20 minutes and 55 seconds of game time. Souliya “JaCkky” Khoompetsavong’s Troll Warlord starred in the victory that put BOOM Esports ahead at 2-0 with seven kills, two deaths, and five assists.
T1 then staged a comeback in the pause-marred Game Three to keep its finals bid alive. Kim “Gabbi” Villafuerte carried the game, finishing with 15 kills, three deaths, and six assists in the 27-29 win in 41 minutes and 31 seconds.
