have had struggles as of late, as they have been 0-6 in their first three series of BTS Pro Series 3: Southeast Asia
. A typically strong team in the Southeast Asian region, they usually place between first and third in most major Southeast Asian tournaments. Some of their notable runs include ESL One Birmingham and ESL One Thailand, where they got first and second respectively. The Southeast Asian branch of BTS Pro Series seemed theirs for the taking.
What is most concerning about their recent fall is that they have been getting stomped by weaker, unknown teams in the tournament. New Esports
and 496 Gaming
both got strong and fast wins over Fnatic in their best-of-2 group matches. One was a 35-6 stomp in favor of New Esports and the other was a 25-minute loss against 496 Gaming where the score was 26-9.
Fnatic rounded out their first set of matches in the tournament by handily losing to TNC Predator
. Both games were stomps for the opposing team.
It will take time to see if this team will be back to form as one of the best Southeast Asian teams in the scene or if the roster changes will get the better of them. If you want to keep up with Fnatic’s performances, make sure to check out their next match against 032 Dota
in BTS Pro Series 3: Southeast Asia on Thursday, September 16 at 2:00 AM ET / 8:00 AM CEST.
