Behind John Anthony “Natsumi-“ Vargas and Mc Nicholson “Mac” Villanueva’s solid outing against Indonesia, Sibol’s Dota 2 squad secured a slot in the upper bracket playoffs, while also assuring the Philippines of a podium finish in the 30th Southeast Asian Games at the Filoil Flying V Centre, Saturday. 

Natsumi (Wraith King) and Villanueva (Storm Spirit) played the carry role in Sibol’s playoff-clinching Game two victory against the Indonesians.

Sibol recorded a total of 36 kills compared to Indonesia’s 23 in 46 minutes and 12 seconds of action ,while totally outplaying a line-up of Dark Willow, Ember Spirit, Tusk, Lone Druid, and Doom fielded in by the visitors.

Bryle Jacob “cml” Alvizo played role of support with Chen. Marvin Salvador “Boomy” Rushton and Jun “Bok” Kanehara played the third and fourth spot with Elder Titan and Venomancer, respectively, in the 2-0 sweep.

The local Dota 2 team opened their SEA Games campaign in Group B with a rousing 2-0 drubbing of Laos. They then capped off the group stages with a 1-1 draw against Myanmar.

Meanwhile, Sibol’s Arena of Valor squad got their medal hopes flushed down the drain as they fell to Thailand, 0-2, in their last match of the day.

The Philippine contingent ran through a brick wall in their opening game, facing regional powerhouse Vietnam and eventually succumbing to a 0-2 result.

Sibol AoV then bounced back with an outstanding victory against Myanmar, 2-0, but the loss against the Thais later in the day dealt a huge blow to their medal quest. They eventually bowed out of the competition with a 1-2 win-loss card in Group A.
