Sibol, the Philippine national team, has secured yet another gold medal in the 30th Southeast Asian Games esports event. The team’s Dota 2 squad defeated Thailand in an incredibly close grand finals match that went all the way five games.
The Philippine Sibol national team’s run in the Dota 2 event began in dominant fashion with two wins and one draw during the group stage, making them the top seed of their group going into the playoffs. The team would then defeat Vietnam in the upper bracket finals to secure the first spot in the grand finals.
Their grand finals opponent, Thailand, ended up being the second seed in their group after losing to Vietnam in the post-group stage tie-breaker. Starting the playoffs in the lower bracket, the team would begin turning things around, defeating Laos as well as Vietnam to become the second team in the grand finals.
The Philippine Sibol national team began the grand finals strong with a quick first game in the best-of-five series but Indonesia fired back in the second game to tie up the set. The teams would then trade the next two games, bringing the series to a deciding fifth game. While Indonesia would take control of most of the last game, the Filipinos would slowly claw their way back to seal the game and the gold.
The Hearthstone and Arena of Valor events were also concluded today. Malaysia’s Hendry Yew attained gold against Thailand’s Werit Popan in Hearthstone while Thailand bested Indonesia for the gold in Arena of Valor. Finally, Singapore’s Khai Kiat Chew and Malaysia secured the bronze medals in Hearthstone and Arena of Valor, respectively.
Sibol’s gold medal finish in Dota 2 is the second gold for the Philippines in the 2019 SEA Games esports events after Mobile Legends: Bang Bang. The country will have two more chances for gold in the StarCraft II and Tekken 7 events to be held today, December 10, 2019.
