Sex Education’s Asa Butterfield Battles Team Liquid Coach Blitz in Dota 2
Asa Butterfield, who stars in Netflix's Sex Education series and is a content creator for Team Liquid, recently faced off against the esports organization’s Dota 2 coach William "Blitz" Lee. Due to Blitz's obvious skilful superiority, Asa had Blitz play without his keyboard in order to make this 1v1 Dota 2 match fair. Furthermore, the heroes were selected at random by both players. A shockingly strong effort from Asa was not enough to earn him victory over the opponent as he lost by a kill score of 2-1. Team Liquid posted a video of this match on its YouTube channel.

“We decided to put Asa's Dota Education to the test. See how he did against Blitz in this ultimate showdown,” Team Liquid said as it shared the video of the 1v1 match.
When Blitz clicked on the Random button, he got Razor, a hero who does fairly well in most 1v1 matches. On the other hand, Asa received Tusk. During the game, Blitz realized he would be unable to deny the creeps since he had enabled that hotkey on his keyboard.
An RNG-blessing granted Asa the first kill. As Asa got very low on both HP and Mana, Blitz pursued him, but as Asa was on the verge of death, the enemy Razor was slowed down by the Ghost Creep, then Asa's Tusk found a Regeneration Rune. This gave him the opportunity to rebound and take down the enemy.
Asa almost pulled off the upset by taking the second kill, but he missed his Walrus Punch Ultimate by 20 mana and Blitz killed him as a consequence to level the scores at 1-1.
The third kill was fairly straightforward for Blitz, who had a decent lead in the last hits. While using Static Link, Blitz charged at Asa, and although the latter used all his spells correctly, he was quickly killed.
"Professional at work," replied Blitz after winning, while Asa was disappointed that his opponent had access to such a powerful laning hero.
Considering that Asa joined Team Liquid in October 2020 as a content creator, he has created plenty of content like this over the past few months. Asa also has a voice line that says, "Nice Ward Bro," in the gold pack of Team Liquid’s Supporters Clubs.
If you are unfamiliar with Asa's work outside of Dota 2, he is an English actor who plays the lead character, Otis, in Netflix's popular series - Sex Education. Prior to that, Asa has starred in noteworthy movies of the likes of “The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas” “and Hugo”.
