South Built Esports received its first loss of the Dota Pro Circuit Southeast Asia 2021 Season Two-Southeast Asia lower division after a reverse 1-2 sweep from Team Mystery, Thursday.
A tight Game Two encounter saw the Malaysians rise on top through the lead of Daniel “Ghost” Chan Kok Hong.
The former Galaxy Racer carry led his team to a 42-33 victory over the Filipinos, finishing with a monster line of 19 kills and 13 assists against just three deaths playing Lifestealer.
Team Mystery veteran support Khoo “Ohaiyo” Chong Xin — a former Fnatic star who also had stints in The International — registered a game-high 35 assists with his Grimstroke along with four kills and seven deaths.
On the other hand, Mark “Bob” Urbina’s Templar Assassin was not enough to salvage the win for the Filipinos as he finished with 14 kills, eight deaths, and 11 assists.
South Built carry Denz “Abat” Anedez had a decent Troll game with nine kills, five deaths, and eight assists while support Ryniel “Zenki” Calvez, who despite getting 17 assists, was held to just a kill and a whopping 15 deaths playing Tusk.
South Built Esports’ woes continued from there, as they surrendered Game Three, 23-34, despite taking the early game advantage against the Malaysians.
The team did show a lot of potential in Game One with Abat playing a mean Gyrocopter that spearheaded South Built’s 32-16 victory to draw first blood.
Despite the loss, South Built Esports will remain at the top of the standings with a 3-1 record while Team Mystery will forge a tie with Army Geniuses at the fourth seat with 1-1 slates.
South Built Esports will take on Motivate.Trust Gaming on May 1.
