Fnatic secure a spot in the semifinals of DOTA 2 ESL One Birmingham 2018

Today was the third day of DOTA 2 ESL One Birmingham 2018, and the spots of the final four Teams is fast approaching.

The first match was an auspicious one for Brazilian squad paiN Gaming, who had just come off a huge upset victory over International 7 champions Team Liquid. They carried their momentum into their quarterfinal series against DAC 2018 winners Mineski, defeating them in two games that totaled just over an hour of in-game time.

This places paiN Gaming on the leaderboard for the first time this season—although their points will ultimately mean nothing due to their absence from the upcoming China Supermajor.

On the other side Fnatic defeated the last Southeast Asian hope OG with 2-1 to make Fnatic the fourth semifinalist team in the tournament. Fnatic slammed the door shut on OG’s hopes at a top four slot in game three by ensuring that Sébastien “7mad” Debs couldn’t get a fast Radiance on Spectre. Without the farming pace that’s normally granted by an early Radiance, OG fell behind quickly and couldn’t keep up with Fnatic’s cores.

The semifinal matches of DOTA 2 ESL One Birmingham 2018 will begin today at 8am CT, starting with PaiN Gaming vs. three-time Major champions Virtus Pro. Followed by OpTic Gaming taking on Fnatic—which should prove to be a very interesting contest considering both teams are in a last-minute dash for a TI8 invite.

The broadcast for all matches will be available on this Twitch channel.
