Fnatic takes the crown. Beyond the Summit

If the LOOT.BET DOTA Summit 12 was an anime, then it would star none other than Dota 2 team Fnatic. Because the events that happened feel straight out of an animated series. Fnatic started strong on the first day and then faced some problems on the second day. However, when the playoffs came, Fnatic bounced back, sort of, and made short work of their opponents and even swept the Grand Finals 3-0 to win the tournament.

On the first day, Fnatic started strong and ended the day with no games lost. Matches the team played in were against Team Liquid first and then Cloud9 after. You can read more about that here. However, for the second day of the Group Stage, Fnatic had three matches and it was all tied at 1-1. This was versus OG.Seed, Thunder Predator, and Evil Geniuses.

These early results allowed Fnatic to have the top position after the Group Stage and guaranteed a playoff spot for the team. In the first playoff match, Fnatic dominated Liquid again. However, they had a bit of a problem in the next match against EG, but did manage to eventually get the win. Read more about Fnatic's road to the Grand Finals here.

The Grand Finals were against OG.Seed. The first game was all about Kam "Moon" Boon Seng as he completely dominated OG.Seed with his Death Prophet. Just how much did he dominate? Moon had a total of 11 kills by himself while OG.Seed had a total of eight team kills.

In the second game, OG.Seed tried to rally back with Rasmus Johan "Chessie" Blomdin in the lead. However, this still wasn't enough as Moon performed well on Ember Spirit and Nuengnara "23savage" Teeramahanon added in with Anti-mage. OG.Seed had a total of 12 team kills while Moon had 13 and 23savage ended with 19 kills.

The third game was pretty much like the second despite the efforts of Chessie and Omar Mohammad "Madara" Dabachach. Fnatic's dynamic duo again made short work of OG.Seed's efforts and closed out the game with excellent performances.

With the win, Fnatic gets to take home around $60,000 with OG.Seed securing $35,500.

Since the two upcoming Dota 2 majors have been cancelled, Fnatic now needs to wait and see if the fifth and final major is going to push through. Currently Fnatic sits in 11th place in the 2019-2020 DPC Rankings.
