Undying TI10

Undying's TI10 road comes to an end

Dota 2 Cristy “Pandoradota2” Ramadani

Undying's TI10 journey has come to an abrupt end after being bested by Fnatic in the brutal best-of-one elimination series. 

Undying gave a surprisingly strong show in the group stage. They narrowly missed having an upper bracket seed from the groups with a 5th place finish and placed ahead of NA favorites Evil Geniuses

Fnatic gave a more touch-and-go performance, at times showing some spectacular plays and other times looking lackluster. 

With the two teams poised to go head-to-head in the brutal lower bracket best-of-one elimination series, many fans were curious about the outcome. 

What nobody expected, the clockwork position 5 from Fnatic, had a massive influence in the game. DJ's performance was spectacular, turning many attempted initiations from Undying into Fnatic's victories. 

What looked to be a strong draft coming out of Undying with the last pick Naga Siren, turned out to be a disaster for them in the end. When MoonMeander echoslammed enemy heroes and Timado put them to sleep, they ended up dealing no damage and the symphony of mistakes was the nail on the coffin for them losing their narrow lead, their focus, and the game. 

Undying will go home with a 13-16th place finish and $600,300 to split amongst themselves for their efforts.
