Fnatic manages to secure a 2-1 victory over TNC Predator to secure a place in the Grand Finals of the ONE Esports Dota 2 SEA League in the Winner Bracket Finals. TNC Predator will need to compete in the Loser Bracket Finals against Geek Fam/T1 for a shot at the title.

After a minor setback at the BTS Pro Series Season 2: Southeast Asia where they had to settle for a third-place finish, Fnatic is just one win away from capturing their 6th title in four months, five of which came one after the other.

Fnatic vs TNC Predator - ONE Esports Dota 2 SEA League - Winner Bracket Finals

Game 1: The first game saw 23savage get his hands on his signature Morphling and completely destroy TNC Predator with it. After a good laning phase, he started snowballing by finding multiple kills on March with the help of DJ’s Tiny. Fnatic’s net worth lead started growing exponentially and they steadily took complete control of TNC Predator’s jungle restricting the Filipino team’s farm

TNC Predator was simply unable to land a single significant blow and conceded game 1 in just 28 minutes.

Game 2: TNC Predator turned to their tried and trusted Gabbi Gyrocopter-March IO combo for Game 2. Although they started off slow, Gabbi once again took over the game and showed us why he is so dangerous when he is handed this hero. 

With some great rotations and incredible team fights, TNC Predator easily claimed the victory in Game 2 to push the series to a deciding Game 3.

Game 3: Although the scoreboard may not show it, Iceiceice stepped up in game three as Fnatic really showed their dominance, helping hold off a surging TNC Predator in the early to mid-game on his Venomancer. He dished out a ridiculous amount of damage.

TNC Predator simply couldn’t survive the onslaught and tried in vain to outlast Fnatic. This helped Fnatic overrun the Filipinos in just 31 minutes and secure a berth in the Grand Finals of the ONE Esports Dota 2 SEA League.

Following their loss in the Winner Bracket Finals, TNC Predator will now move on to the Lower Bracket finals of the ONE Esports Dota 2 SEA League where they’ll face off against Geek Fam/T1 for a shot at the Grand Finals and the lion’s share of the $100,000 prize pool.
