It was then only a question of MVP Black. Renowned for being perhaps the best team in HotS history. The team who were so heartbroken by our very own in last year’s semifinal.
Game one went well: a double global composition on Cursed Hollow resisted MVP Black’s mechanical prowess, and Fnatic went 1-0 up.
But, as the two teams battled it out on the Nexus, we went into a fourth game 2-1 down. Despite falling to an early deficit to the Koreans, the isolation synergy of Breez’ Stitches and scHwimpi’s Medivh led to us striking back and taking several forts.
One last fight, however, and MVP Black took the third game they needed.
As the dust settled, there’s reason for disappointment but even more reason to be proud of an incredible year.
