beastcoast, SA's last hope at TI10, has fallen
The South American region no longer has a team competing at TI10 as beastcoast falls to Alliance in the brutal best-of-one elimination series.
In a historic twist of fate, the once-neglected region was able to see three teams from SA head to The International 10. Both Thunder Predator and SG esports failed to make it through the group stage and beastcoast was seeded into the lower brackets. They were the last hope of South America, with the hopes and dreams of the entire region riding on their shoulders.
Alliance had a rough time in the group stage, losing all of their games on Saturday, they were able to pull things together on Sunday to keep their TI dreams alive.
The draft seemed to favor Alliance with lots of stuns to compliment their typical playstyle.
The Swedish-based team came out of the gates with aggression and dominance while beastcoast looked a bit loose and slightly nervous —something that they don't typically look at LAN events.
Alliance's confidence was incredibly high with their success from their laning phase and rotated around for the pick-offs and to put on relentless pressure on the SA team.
Things got a bit sloppy and messy with the team fights for a while, allowing beastcoast to close the gap between them, but the SA team was never able to fully recover or gain any control.
Alliance came through in the clutch, and even without a dedicated coach got their first big win on a LAN this year.
beastcoast will go home with a 13-16th place finish and $600,300 to split amongst themselves for their efforts.
