EVOS Esports TH takes the SEA Icon Series 2021 Summer Super Cup
A thrilling best-of-five grand finals is a good way to cap the SEA Icon Series 2021 Summer Super Cup.
It was a day for Thai fans of Wild Rift to rejoice as EVOS Esports TH took home the gold at the SEA Icon Series 2021 Summer Super Cup. Not only do they walk away with the $25,000 winnings but also a slot in the SEA Championship Last Chance qualifiers.
The grand final against ONE Team was a thrilling affair with the Taiwanese team taking the Thai's to all five games. In yesterday's earlier game for third place, CERBERUS Esports managed to take the series after going down to the wire as well against SBTC Esports.
The Thais come out on top
EVOS Esports TH was able to top Group A, even if they dropped a game against Team Secret. With their first place finish, they went on to face Alliance in the quarterfinals, knocking them out in a clean three-nil sweep. Next up was their semifinal against SBTC Esports, which saw them knock the Viets down into the third-place battle.
A near fairytale finish
While EVOS Esports TH will dominate the headlines over the next few days, credit must go to ONE Team for climbing the entire length of the playoff bracket after finishing second in Group C. Of course, the playoffs weren't a walk in the park for the Taiwanese boys.
Their first series was a three-to-one victory against Buriram United Esports, followed by an exciting five-game series versus their fellow countryman, Flash Wolves. Their last game before the finals was a clean three-zero sweep, taking on the eventual third-place finishers.
What to expect ahead
With the SEA Icon Series 2021 Summer Super Cup done and dusted, we look ahead to the SEA Championship Last Chance qualifiers, whenever that may be.
