The Indonesian hopefuls, BOOM Esports have dropped out of the StarLadder ImbaTV Dota 2 Minor Season 3 after two straight defeats in the playoffs. The team lost 1-2 against Gambit Esports in their first match of the day, before they were eliminated by another 0-2 loss against Alliance.
BOOM Esports vs Gambit Esports
Although BOOM Esports got off to a strong start to the series by winning Game 1 thanks to scintillating performance from Mikoto on the Void Spirit, they ultimately faltered in Game 2 and 3 as the team simply failed to Dream’s Morphling performances.
Hence they were knocked down to an elimination match where they would face Alliance.
BOOM Esports vs Alliance
Once again, strong laning saw BOOM Esports hold their own against Alliance for the first 2/3rds of the game. However a Rapier on Nikobaby’s Troll Warlord turned out to be the factor that allowed Alliance to secure a Game 1 victory.
Game 2 was not even close, as the European team styled on the Indonesians to grab the win in just over 20 minutes.
BOOM Esports will now walk home with 90 DPC Points which puts them in 26th place in the DPC rankings. The team needs to deliver in the 4th and 5th set of Majors/Minors to stand a chance to grab an invite to TI.
