OG keep TI three-peat dreams alive after overcoming Tundra Esports 3-2

04:23 PM July 11, 2021

OG gave Topias “Topson” Taavitsainen a chance to protect his 100% win-rate in The International by securing the 18th and final TI spot, breaking Kuro “KuroKy” Takhasomi’s TI-appearance streak in the process.

OG completed the revenge victory against Tundra Esports in the Grand Finals 3-2. Tundra Esports, led by Neta “33” Shapira and Adrian “Fata” Trinks, annihilated OG 2-0 in the Upper Bracket Finals of the qualifiers and was first to seat in the Grand Finals while OG faced Team Nigma in the Lower Bracket Finals.


OG came up strong in the Grand Finals as they left their unorthodox playstyle behind and embraced the meta of having a hard carry on the game. Contradicting as it seems to OG’s known playstyle, Sebastien “Ceb” Debs made sure that Syed “Sumail” Hassan had a very easy lane by making spaces all around the map in every game of the series. 


Chinese region also proclaimed its Qualifier Champion, Team Elephant. Xu “Fy” Linsen and Lu “Somnus’ M” Yao will once again have their shot at the Aegis of Champions this coming October.

Fy-led Team Elephant faced Ehome in the Grand Finals with Fy and Somnus’ M battling former LGD teammates Yang “Chalice” Shenyi and Yap “xNova” Jian Wei. Ultimately, Team Elephant finished the tie in convincing fashion by dominating and ending the series for Ehome at Game 4.
