Karl’s T1 fells to Abed’s Evil Geniuses, finishes AniMajor in third place

T1’s hot streak in the WePlay AniMajor finally ended at the hands of Filipino midlaner Abed “Abed” Yusop’s Evil Geniuses, 2-1, in the lower bracket finals Sunday night.

Abed and his squad eventually lost in the grand finals via a 3-0 sweep from PSG.LGD – who became the second Chinese team to win a DPC Major this year after Invictus Gaming who topped the ONE Esports Singapore Major.

EG support Andreas “Cr1t-” Nielsen led the Game One win against T1, putting up a game-high 20 assists with his Lion laced with five kills and four deaths. Looking to bring his squad back in contention, Filipino midlaner Karl “Karl” Jayme went off in Game Two as he tallied eight kills and 19 assists against five deaths with his Doom to even the series.

Unfortunately for the South Korean squad, Daryl “iceiceice” Pei Xiang took matters into his own hands in Game Three as he led Evil Geniuses’ total domination against T1. He ended up with four kills and 15 assists without a single death all while being on top of the net worth standings – eclipsing both teams’ position one and two players.

T1 was one of the favorites to win the title after a strong start to the playoffs. The Carlo “KuKu” Palad-led squad took down top Chinese squad Team Aster via a 2-0 sweep in the first round of the upper bracket before shutting down the number one North American squad in Quincy Crew through a 2-1 result.

However, the team’s woes started when they lost to eventual champions PSG.LGD in the upper bracket finals via a 2-1 outcome. T1 then dropped to the lower bracket final against Evil Geniuses.

Still, T1 will have a lot of things to celebrate despite the loss as they already qualified for The International after the opening win against Team Aster. The team will be bringing home a total of $70,00USD for ending the tournament in third place.
