Neon dropped by Fnatic to TI10 Qualifiers lower bracket

Fnatic advanced to the upper bracket finals of The International 10 Southeast Asia regional qualifiers after taking down OB Esports x Neon via a 2-1 victory in the upper bracket semis, Thursday night.

Polo “Raven” Fausto’s perfect Terrorblade outing anchored Fnatic’s 32-8 Game Three stomp over OB Neon — who now looks to salvage their TI chances down from the lower bracket.

The former TNC carry put up 15 kills and 11 assists without a single death. Raven also tallied a game-high 38,427 net worth while also dealing a total of 36,060 damage.

It was an efficient showing for the 22-year-old Filipino carry. He only died thrice in the three-game series, which saw him play Terrorblade twice.

Ng “ChYuan” Kee Chyuan’s Leshrac ended up with eight kills and a death. Meanwhile, Yang “Deth” Wu Heng – who helped OB Neon reach a 5th-6th place finish in the Singapore Major – finished with four kills, two deaths, and 17 assists with his Legion Commander.

Meanwhile, John Anthony “Natsumi-“ Vargas’ signature Phantom Lancer was limited to just two kills, four deaths, and three assists in the Game Three loss.

Back in Game One, OB Neon still showed signs of life early in the match. But it never had a clear answer to ChYuan’s Templar Assassin and Raven’s Gyrocopter.

With that, Fnatic completely ran over OB Neon’s composition come the late game. Both ChYuan and Raven took turns to pummel down the all-Filipino squad. ChYuan’s traps also proved to be the key in preventing John Anthony “Natsumi-“ Vargas’ Nature Prophet from split pushing, which became one of the key problems for OB Neon.

The Malaysian offlaner-turned-midlaner finished with 12 kills and 10 assists without a single death. Raven had nine kills, a death, and nine assists in the 27-13 Game One win.

OB Neon leaned on Erin “Yopaj” Ferrer’s Zeus and Natsumi’s Nature Prophet in Game Two to even out the series through a 32-23 outing.

Yopaj, who took care of Fnatic’s back line, finished with 11 kills and 14 assists against two deaths. Natsumi — who had a revenge Nature Prophet game after a dismal performance in Game One — had 11 kills, three deaths, and 14 assists in the 46:33-minute match.
