Nigma is on a roll. After knocking out Geek Fam in the WePlay! Bukovel Minor 2020 and beating TNC Predator in their opening match at the DreamLeague Season 13: Leipzig Major, the team has now knocked down Fnatic to claim a spot in the Upper Brackets of the Major.

Fnatic will now have to battle the winner of the TNC Predator vs Aster matchup to decide who goes to the Upper Bracket.

Fnatic vs Team Nigma

Game 1: With both teams picking up similar 4-protect-1 lineups, the game was relatively even with tons of back and forth engagements providing fans with an entertaining match. However, in the end, Miracle’s Divine Rapier’d Phantom Lancer was just too hard for Fnatic to handle. Even 23savage’s Divine Rapier’d Medusa failed to put a stop to the rampaging illusions, and hence conceding the game.

Game 2: The second game saw 23savage get his hands on the Phantom Lancer this time. However, it failed to be as successful as the one that Miracle showcased just before this game. He played 2nd fiddle to Miracle’s Slark despite possessing a net-worth advantage. So Nigma were easily able to close out the game in 55-minutes and claim the series victory.

With a potential SEA derby between TNC Predator and Fnatic on the cards, fans must surely be excited for this clash of the titans.
