FATE Esports and Team Unique are set to battle it out for the 9th-10th place decider in the European ESEA Season 33: Advanced Division.
Apart from the honour of finishing inside the top 10, the winner of this contest will qualify for the relegation league, taking one step closer to the ultimate goal of Premier League promotion!
FATE finished the regular season points ahead of Unique, but struggled once the heat was on in the playoffs bracket, dropping two straight matches to Prima eSports and Ambush Esport.
Unique copped a rough playoff draw and was knocked out of the top bracket in round one by the red hot grand finalists Endpoint.
Unique bounced back from that disappoint result with two solid performances to keep them in the hunt for promotion.
TU’s recent surge in form puts them in the box seat to take this contest out.
Week 1 of China Dota2 Professional League SE2 continues this weekend as Keen Gaming square up against the newly promoted CDEC Gaming.
CDEC Cruised through the China Dota2 Development League last season, claiming the minor premiership without defeat (9-0).
Alternatively, Keen Gaming just managed to avoid relegation from China’s top Dota2 devision. KG finished SE1 in disastrous fashion losing four games straight, ultimately finishing 7th and missing out on the playoffs.
CDEC will be eager to prove they below amongst the who’s who of Dota2 and I’m backing them to get off to a flyer here at the expense of Keen.
