    SOUTHEAST Asian squad T1 has secured their own WePlay AniMajor slot after beating OB. Neon 2-1, in a close series, to end the DPC SEA Season 2 regular season.

    The mixed Southeast Asian team, captained by Pinoy Carlo "Kuku" Palad, relied on Thai Carry Nuengnara “23savage” Teeramahanon in the decider as his Lifestealer was unkillable with a 13/1/17 KDA including a double Rampage in the last seconds of the game.

    OB. Neon looked like they were in control of the early and mid-game with carry John Anthony “Natsumi-“ Vargas leading the net worth for most of the game with his Gyrocopter.

    Midlane Erin “Yopaj” Jasper Ferrer also grabbed key pickoffs against the T1’s mid lane Razor to keep the team in the lead.
