After a surprising 2-0 loss to T1, Fnatic quickly vented its ire on OB Esports x Neon to notch its fourth-straight victory through a 2-0 result in the Dota Pro Circuit 2021: Season Two-Southeast Asia upper division, Friday evening.
The win put Fnatic at the second spot – tied with T1 with identical 4-2 win-loss slates.
Filipino carry Polo “Raven” Fausto’s Wraith King had a field day in the opener, finishing with five kills and 11 assists against just a death in the 25-11 Game One win over his fellow Filipinos.
Fnatic offlaner Ng “ChYuan” Kee Chyuan’s Axe also played a key factor in the Game One dominance as he provided nine kills and 14 assists against just a death – along with multiple well-initiated Berserker’s Call in the 27:17-minute match.
Support Djardel “DJ” Mampusti registered a game-high 21 assists along with two kills and three deaths playing Grimstroke while midlaner Kam “Moon” Boon Seng’s Bristleback had five kills, three deaths, and 15 assists in the opener.
On the other hand, OB.Neon rising star Erin “Yopaj” Ferrer struggled with his Puck as he was held to just six kills, six deaths, and three assists along with a total net worth of 11,511.
Raven stepped on the gas come Game Two, leading a 28-9 victory to help Fnatic seal the 2-0 with his perfect Arc Warden performance.
The former TNC Predator carry finished Game Two with nine kills and 13 assists as well as a 25, 404 total net worth to put OB.Neon down in just 30 minutes and nine seconds.
DJ, meanwhile, chalked up another game-high 19 assists laced with three kills and two deaths as Ancient Apparition.
Yopaj struggled once more with his Puck with four kills and five assists against three deaths. OB.Neon carry John Anthony “Natsumi-“ Vargas, who played the Magnus for the second-straight time, had two kills, two deaths, and four assists in the Game Two loss.
OB.Neon’s chances of returning to the second Major of the year are dwindling down after settling for a 3-3 card tied at fourth place with Execration and Boom Esports.
Fnatic looks to cap off the season against top one quad TNC Predator on May 16 while OB.Neon will try and alter its fate against T1 on May 20.
