That’s back-to-back championships for SEA titans Fnatic, who claimed a 3-0 win over Adroit to claim the title at the ESL One LA Online - SEA Division.
Fnatic had just won Dota Summit 12 beating out a number of teams including Evil Geniuses, OG.Seed and Team Liquid. However, they started out this online league on a bad foot losing multiple series in a row and were in danger of being eliminated.
However, the team turned up the heat later yesterday and won 3 series in a row to claim the title in the online league.

All three games in this series were one-sided stomps, which was a damn shame considering the fact that Adroit was looking super-hot coming into this series. The Filipino team was undefeated in their entire run through the lower brackets. However, they just didn’t turn up when it counted the most.
Fnatic’s Support Djardel Jicko B. "DJ" Mampusti was crowned as the Mercedes Benz MVP of the SEA online league.
The boys from Adroit have 2 weeks of rest before gearing up to compete at the ESL SEA Championships Playoffs.
That tournament resumes later tomorrow with teams like Geek Fam and BOOM Esports competing in the Group Stage for a spot in the playoffs. Stay tuned to AFK Gaming for further updates on this tournament.
