Incredible effort! Fnatic’s DotA 2 team booked their place for Seattle this week after a frankly excellent qualifying campaign. It all comes after nearly a year spent trying to recapture the form of our Ti6 roster and it is only fitting that we hit our stride by securing 2017’s second SEA spot for the biggest esports event in the world!
It was no easy task either with the qualifying round robin STACKED with talent, from Mineski to Faceless, Execration and TNC. We had to be at our absolute best to make it through and in the early stages we were already showing promise. We were on a hot streak, winning the first three best-of-1 clashes to push us to the front of the pack. It was only Mushi’s Mineski side that were able to halt our charge, and even that was temporary.
You could feel the improvement throughout the team. QO had looked monstrous with Febby a constant backbone to our team fighting. The understanding and cohesion throughout the roster has reached a whole new level.
