The squad had to beat out Southeast Asian favorites, TNC Predator
in the final two series of the event.
Geek Fam had been knocked into the lower bracket by TNC during the first round of the uppers. In a complete turnaround, Geek Fam took TNC out in the lower bracket final, 2:0. They went on to face Fnatic in the grand final, which Geek Fam won 3:1.
It wasn't a clean grand final. Instead, Geek Fam eked out games 1 and 3 after falling behind in the laning phase. Still, they displayed more flexibility in their drafts and a determination to win that took them all the way to three GG calls from Fnatic.
This is Geek Fam's second event win in as many tournaments. They also took first place at BTS Pro Series: SEA
at the end of June. We anticipate the scrappy squad will compete in the recently announced ESL One Thailand, beginning mid-August, but no confirmation has been made at this time.
Congratulations to Geek Fam on their win. Is it time now to call them the SEA favorites?
