Fnatic and Reality Rift face each other in the ESL One Birmingham 2020 - Online: Southeast Asia tournament. The ESL One Birmingham 2020: Southeast Asia is a $40,000 USD online tournament featuring sixteen SEA teams. The teams play in a round-robin group stage. The top two teams advance to the playoffs upper bracket, while the third and fourth-placed teams move to the lower bracket of the playoffs.
Despite being one of the favorites to win the tournament, Fnatic started off wrong in the tournament. Their inaugural match resulted in a 1-2 loss to Adroit. However, Fnatic fans will still be hopeful of a successful campaign as Fnatic’s DJ was in great form. He played the Tiny in the first match and dominated the entire game.
Reality Rift’s Dota 2 roster comprises players from Malaysia, Mongolia and Indonesia. While the team has won many of their recent matches, the team’s performance has not been dominant. They have barely moved past some weaker opponents, and they should be at a severe disadvantage in this match.
