Hellbear Smashers take Snow Sweet Snow crown

Dota 2 Cristy “Pandoradota2” Ramadani

Hellbear Smashers win their first event as they take the Snow Sweet Snow title with a 3:1 victory over PuckChamp. 

Misery and Ace's new team Hellbear Smashers might have been relegated to the lower division for the DPC 2021 Season 1, but they are still number one in Snow Sweet Snow's book. 

After securing the first place spot in their group with a 5:2 record, they entered into the playoff portion in the Upper Brackets Round 3. There they swept through Spider Pigz and then PuckChamp for the first spot in the grand finals. 

PuckChamp held the second-place spot in the same group as Hellbear Smashers, also with a 5:2 record. After falling to the lower brackets by Misery & Co, they overpowered creepwave to have another round with Hellbear and exact their revenge. 

Unfortunately, they were destined to play second fiddle to Hellbear Smashers this entire event. Unable to usurp them at any point, Hellbear proved to be the better team.
