Although no teams were eliminated when the group stage of
Beyond the Summit Pro Series Season 4: Southeast Asia came to an end yesterday,
today kicked off with two lower bracket elimination series with two teams
exiting the event.
When the group stage of the BTS Pro Series Season 4: SEA
came to an end yesterday, the bottom four teams were sent straight into the
lower bracket, where they would have to face off against each other in hopes of
clinging to their tournament lives. Execration and Vice Esports were the first
two teams to see action and it was almost a massive upset. A relatively unknown
team, Vice went into the first game ready to fight and Execration seemed to be
stunned by this as they were never allowed the opportunity to farm – with Vice claiming
the early series lead.
However, the next two games saw an almost identical
scoreline with Execration finding 43 kills, while leaving only 17 behind for
their opponents. Although Vice had played amazingly, the experience of
Execration came into play as they remained composed and closed out a 2-1 series
win. With that, Vice Esports would be the first team eliminated from the event,
while Execration move forward in the lower bracket.
Neon Esports had finished at the bottom of the group, unable
to take a single series victory throughout their opening seven series and today
would be no different. Having just witnessed the elimination of Vice, Neon were
in a tough position with Motivate.Trust Gaming as their opponent – a team which
they had oddly managed to tie with earlier in the event. This time around, MTG
were going to give them no such chances as they pummeled the Neon lineup into
the ground twice in a row. Although there were signs of a comeback from Neon,
such as an amazing Aegis steal in game two, it was nowhere near enough to pull
them back into the series.
With their 2-0 win, Motivate.Trust Gaming march forward in
the lower bracket, while Neon Esports are eliminated from the BTS Pro Series
Season 4: SEA. Tomorrow we return to the action with the upper bracket as TNC
Predator take on Fnatic and T1 go up against Team Dog.
