BOOM Esports Secures Fourth Consecutive DPC Series Victory
As BOOM Esports scores its fourth consecutive victory in the Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) Southeast Asia 2021-22 Tour 1: Division 1, it is closing in on a top three finish that will guarantee it a spot in the first Major. It took BOOM Esports an extremely competitive and convincing game win over Motivate.Trust Gaming to secure this fourth 2-0 series victory. Motivate.Trust Gaming had an advantage in the first game, but one clutch teamfight victory by the opponents turned it around. Motivate.Trust Gaming seemed crestfallen after such a heartbreaking loss and could not deliver the same level of performance against BOOM Esports' aggressive draft in the second game.
BOOM Esports vs Motivate.Trust Gaming: Match Recap and Highlights
In game 1, BOOM Esports picked an out-of-meta Riki in the safelane. It did not go as planned as Tino died three times within the first 13 minutes. Though both teams got kills as the game progressed, Motivate.Trust Gaming was able to lead the way with superior farming efficiency. Though Motivate.Trust Gaming was cautious of going for the high ground, it seemed like it would take the win. This is when BOOM Esports, with its impeccable teamfight skills, turned the game on its head in a Roshan fight to win the game in 48 minutes.
In game 2, BOOM Esports picked up a mid Death Prophet, a safelane Razor, and an offlane Outworld Destroyer, with a focus on pushing forward in the middle stages. BOOM Esports pushed the pace with its draft whereas Motivate.Trust Gaming tried to counter but Tino's Razor put himself in the front with his early BKB and the offlane support from Outworld Destroyer. Since Motivate.Trust Gaming lacked resources to fight the enemies, it gradually lost the game in 35 minutes.
Here are some highlights of the series.
Boom Esports seems to be on top of their game. The team last lost a series on 1st Oct 2021, against Ragdoll in the OB.Moon Asian Arena. But, ever since then, in the last 19 series, the team has won 16 games and drawn just three. Erin Jasper "Yopaj" Ferrer once again proved his skills in the series today by putting up a beast of a performance on Templar Assassin and Death Prophet. Despite seeming like he would have to endure some tough games, he shined through and outperformed the opponents.
After two consecutive wins, Motivate.Trust Gaming has now lost two games in a row. The Thai squad has a difficult road ahead to make it to the top three, as it still has to play the likes of T1 and Fnatic.
BOOM Esports and Motivate.Trust Gaming will both take a break over the course of the next few days and both teams shall play their next DPC series in January 2022. Motivate.Trust Gaming will play Fnatic on 6th Jan 2022, whereas BOOM Esports will face off against TNC Predator on 8th Jan 2022.
