Geek Fam secure BTS Pro Series Season 2: SEA title

Dota 2 Cristy “Pandoradota2” Ramadani

With a clean sweep over Boom Esports, Geek Fam claimed the championship title of the BTS Pro Series Season 2 for SEA. 

It wasn't as if Geek Fam was the favored team going into the event nor even in the group stage. In fact, the team barely squeaked into the upper brackets of the playoffs as the fourth team and with only one more win over the next team in line. 

But once they were in the playoffs, Geek Fam outplayed and overpowered their opponents. Both of the SEA powerhouse teams dropped much earlier than was expected, with TNC taking a surprising 5-6th place finish. 

Boom Esports who has been a steady rising force in the region fell to Geek Fam 2:1 in the upper bracket finals. Although they regained their footing and defeated Fnatic in order to gain access to the grand finals and exact their revenge on Geek Fam, the team seemed to be at a complete loss in the rematch. Losing two games that had stronger drafts to start, they just fell apart in the third game.
