Team standings of SEA 2021 DPC Season 1: Upper Division after BOOM's win over Fnatic.Game 1 witnessed Fnatic have a much stabler and better teamfight draft as compared to BOOM. Though the laning phase went quiet and steady for both teams, Fnatic picked up the pace soon after, with a better item and hero level timing. The game gradually kept pulling away from BOOM as they had no damage to kill enemy heroes, losing the first game in 35 minutes. 

Game 2 was Mikoto’s show as he delivered an impeccable performance on Storm Spirit. BOOM regularly picked off enemy heroes with their high mobility lineup as they established a solid networth lead. Fnatic’s last hurrah was some insane Blackhole by Masaros, but the Indonesians were spot on with their position as they won game 2 in 43 minutes.

Game 3 saw Drew taking the spotlight in the carry role as he amassed a lot of creep score and chopped down enemy heroes. This game was an easy one for Khezcute and his boys as they heavily outplayed Fnatic, winning the game in 39 minutes and series 2-1. 

Despite losing their debut match of the tournament against Neon Esports, BOOM is now looking solid with back to back wins against 496 Gaming and Fnatic. With this victory, they are now in a safe, top three spot that grants them a place in the first Major of the season. Their next challenge of the tournament will be against T1 tomorrow, February 4.
