Team Falcons vs. Tundra Esports

After battling their way through the Lower Bracket, Team Falcons will finally get their chance at revenge on Tundra Esports. Unfortunately, it doesn’t feel like the outcome will be any different from the first time these two teams met in the Playoffs. 

Falcons have gone from unstoppable force, with opponents having very little answers, to a team that’s very fallible, and at times even makes game-ending mistakes. Tundra, a team with seemingly the same level of raw talent, will likely win this match – Unless they decide to draft Pugna for Topias “Topson” Taavitsainen again.

Falcons Win 2-0

BetBoom vs. Falcons

BetBoom are now the obvious favorites to win this tournament. For the last 12 months this team has competed at the very top-tier of Dota 2 without winning a tournament. They’ve beaten both Tundra and Falcon’s before, and their players are performing at an incredible level. Team captain Vitalie “Save-” Melnic has found a form that has pushed him into the spotlight, and the cadre of cores are performing at the very highest levels. Still, they’re not without their flaws, so the series will likely push into four games.
