4 Anchors and Sea Captain have defeated Power Rangers, 3:1, in the Esportal Invitational Qualifier 4, thus securing their spot in the LAN finals.
4 Anchors and Sea Captain came into the Esportal fourth Invitational Qualifier ready to win after losing 3:1 to 4 Clovers & Lepricon in the third Open Qualifier, on April 15. The Finish team were given a second chance to redeem themselves when they were invited by organizers two weeks later.
Power Rangers were equally hungry for victory after placing fifth in the first Invitational Qualifier and then second in the second and third Invitational Qualifiers. Armed with a new roster including Rinat “KingR” Abdulin and Kirill “Sunlight” Kachinsky, the team was ready for battle.
After defeating Burden United, 2:0, and Vega Squadron, 2:1, 4ASC advanced to the finals to face PR, which had previously bested GameOnLine, 2:1, and London Conspiracy, 2:1.

With both teams vying for the LAN spot and playing in new patch 6.84 territory, the matches were filled with excitement and even uncertainty in their item builds as evidenced by Kalle “Trixi Saarinen after his purchase of Aghanim’s Scepter on Nyx Assassian. First game went in favor of 4ASC. PR took the second one and evened out the series. 4ASC took the third game and continued to build their momentum into the fourth game, securing their win after an impressive run and control through the game.
