With the The International 2022 (TI11) Last Chance Qualifiers on the horizon, Beyond The Summit (BTS) resumes its Playoffs stage for the BTS Pro Series S12. The third day of the playoffs stage continued in the Lower Bracket, as Hokori faced off against the Southeast Asian (SEA) powerhouse team of Fnatic.

The series ended up being a shocker, as Hokori defeated Fnatic in a 2-0 stomp. With the defeat, Fnatic is now eliminated from the tournament and only finishes in the top six. Hokori, though, will continue to march on through the Lower Bracket.

Fnatic vs Hokori: Match recap

During its encounter in the group stage, both teams ended up drawing the best of two. However since then, Fnatic’s run of form looked to have dipped after yesterday’s shocking loss to Execration. Hokori on the other hand, were looking to ride the momentum after a solid victory against TNC Predator a few days earlier.

Game One

In Game One, Fnatic went for a stable draft as by picking up Armel “Armel” Tabios’s Puck and Anucha “Jabz” Jirawong’s Visage. Hokori meanwhile went for a greedy lineup, consisting of Medusa for Edward "Lumière" Valencia and Pangolier for João "4nalog" Giannini.

Fnatic’s draft was unable to come alive as Lumiere’s Medusa was constantly outfarming Fnatic’s core heroes while 4nalog’s Pangolier was wreaking havoc on the backline. Despite attempts from Fnatic to come back into the game, Hokori ended up securing Game 1 after 45 minutes as Fnatic’s base exploded.

Game Two

In Game Two, Hokori went for an aggressive draft as it picked up Faceless Void, Puck and an offlane Undying. Fnatic opted to draft Alchemist for Marc "Raven" Fausto and Batrider for Armel in hopes of a third game.

The first 30 minutes went in the way of Fnatic, as Armel’s Batrider performed relatively well. However, the late game went fully in the favor of Hokori as Lumière’s Faceless Void went fully uncontested in terms of net worth and kills. Game Two ended after 48 minutes, with Fnatic tapping out of the game and the tournament entirely.

Following the series, Hokori will move on into the Quarterfinals of the Lower Bracket as it awaits the winner of the Team SMG vs Army Geniuses match. Fnatic on the other hand, will now be eliminated from the tournament as it looks to prepare for TI11 after the defeat.
