TF’s top-notch performance served as the catalyst to Burst The Sky’s second victory against Team Flash. Team Flash went too aggressive in their play which TF’s Olaf abused and eventually helped him secure all the objectives in the game.
Grand Finals: Divine eSports vs RSG
The team gave their best efforts in the grand finals of the SEA Icon Series 2021: Preseason - Vietnam. The BO5 series indeed with RSG earning a score of 3-2 against Divine eSports.
In the first round, the teams were on equal footing. However, Hope1 from Divine eSports managed to hit his power spike and dominated the match with a KDA of 11/1/15. His amazing positioning and team coordination managed to carry Divine eSports in this round.
In the second round, RSG made a counter-attack. Trumhp1408 lead the team with amazing clutch plays, which ended in him getting a KDA of 6/1/10. His KDA isn’t as fancy as Hope1 in the first round, but it helped RSG this round.
In the third round, Divine eSports returned the favor with another win. They put RSG in a very bad situation with the help of Coyote, which made it impossible for RSG to make a comeback. Coyote’s presence helped a lot in this round in keeping RSG from pressing further.
In the fourth round, Divine eSports seemed to have this in the bag. However, Cozy from RSG went on a last-ditch effort to initiate a backdoor on the enemy team’s base. The rest of the RSG members followed, and before the rest of the enemy team could return to their base, the nexus was gone giving RSG the win.
In the final round, both teams were desperate to win. Divine eSports were dominating team fights, but RSG focused more on getting as many turrets and objectives as possible. This pushed Divine eSports in a very awkward spot which kept them from pressing forward. RSG went in and finished what they started and took the crown of champions in the SEA Icon Series 2021: Preseason - Vietnam.
