With big names like Faceless and Execration going into the brackets, the Dota 2 SEA qualifier looked exciting right from the start. Everybody expected the Philippine side to easily make it into the finals, and indeed Execration notched up wins against Mineski-X and Eternal Creed early on. A respected team with serious credentials (their star players Abedd and Gabbi already proven TI veterans), they were battered by their final opponent of the day: Next Generation from Vietnam. NG’s stand-in SeeL stepped right up and took apart Execration on his own, impressing casters and community alike with his next-gen Dark Seer mechanics. Alongside him was his teammate DifferentHeaven, known to be the first Vietnamese player with an 8k MMR, and together they caused huge trouble for Execration. After 38 minutes, the favorites had to face the fact that they had lost their Grand Final spot to the Vietnamese underdogs.
The second bracket had unpredictable matches coming in, featuring big names like Mineski and Faceless. Faceless were the favorites to win since Mineski had a big question mark on their roster: their German player Black^. He had not played Anti-Mage for more than a year, which left even the casters wondering what his play style would be. After the first fights went in favor of Mineski, it became clear that Black^ was pulling no punches, decisively winning fight after fight. Faceless slowly lost ground and had to call GG after 33 minutes, unexpectedly dropping out of the tournament. For their part, Mineski carried their momentum into their final game against Rex Regum Qeon, from Singapore. Bimbo especially had a phenomenal performance, even killing all enemy players single-handedly at 37 minutes. Mineski’s ticket to Kuala Lumpur was well secured then.
