The eSports organization can now brag about being the best in Southeast Asia after its recent victory

Dota 2 has been active running several eSports online events this past month and welcoming the best teams in the world. Most recently, the attention is going to the eSports organization Fnatic, which has just amassed its second straight ESL One championship to their records and secured their spot as the top Dota 2 team in the Southeast Asia region. The team has been crowned champion of the ESL One Birmingham Online after defeating the worthy opponents BOOM Esports.

BOOM had a great performance during the tournaments and demonstrated that this is a team to pay attention to in the region. However, despite their efforts, the team seem like they didn’t have the required energy to take down the final match against the huge veterans. For Fnatic, the run was bumpy as they made some mistakes along the way. It dropped a series to BOOM and Team Adroit in the group stage, but, regardless of what happened during that stage, Jabz and his team showed consistency during all playoff matches. Actually, BOOM was only able to defeat Fnatic once during the two times they faced each other in the bracket.

The final matches displayed great talent and fierce competition, with great performances coming from all the teams. But the men behind the team, 23savage, Djardel “DJ” Mampusti, and Moon, had all near-perfect performances. Specifically, 23savage did not report one single negative performance in the entire championship, finishing with an outstanding average of eight kills and 30,000 damage, even when the team lost that one match. But the most relevant player for the team during this series was Moon, who had two dominant performances on Death Prophet, which helped the team leading to its victory.
