Fnatic have emerged the TI6 Qualifiers SEA winners – the result they were more than hoping for after being denied a direct invite and missing the first qualified spot claimed by TnC.
The Malaysian squad will join OG, Team Liquid, Newbee, MVP.Phoenix, Na’Vi, LGD Gaming, TnC Gaming (first winner of the SEA qualifiers), Evil Geniuses (first winner of the Americas qualifiers), Team Secret (first winner of the EU qualifiers), Wings Gaming (first winner of the Chinese qualifiers), one more winner from the Chinese, Americas and EU qualifiers. The main event scheduled to take place between August 8th – August 13th, at the Key Arena in Seattle, Washington.
Joining them will also be XctN who have been awarded the TI6 Wild Card spot as the runner up.
The Filipino team will join the ranks of the TI6 Wild Card contenders – one from China, EU and NA still yet to be determined.
TI6 Qualifiers SEA results
TI6 Qualifiers SEA Upper Bracket Finals: Fnatic vs WarriorsGaming.Unity
Fnatic was able to stake their claim on both of their matches and gain the victory for the series. While both games were incredibly long – taking almost an hour for each one to conclude, the Malaysian based team were able to pull it off at the end. WG.Unity fought hard in the first game, but was never able to turn things around. In the second match they did manage to seize the slight advantage at least twice, but had never been able to take a firm hold on it and eventually submitted to Fnatic.
The first match took almost one hour for Fnatic to seal the deal. Although the Malaysian based team had most of the game under control and the advantage, WG.U fought hard for a chance to turn things.

TI6 Qualifiers SEA Lower Bracket Finals: XctN vs WG.Unity
XctN and WG.U went head to head for a final chance to compete for a place in TI6 – either through the wild card spot or directly. All three games were overall evenly matched with both teams giving their all. In the first game of the series WG.U had taken the control and lead early on but XctN would strike back and turn the tides on them towards the end of the team. WarriorsGaming.Unity then came out of the gate swinging for the second match. After losing their step for a moment, they quickly reseized it and claimed their victory. The third game was very evenly matched for the first half of the game. A fantastic performance on Invoker and a heavily farmed Terrorblade would seal XctN’s win and send them to the grand finals.

TI6 Qualifiers SEA Grand Finals: Fnatic vs XctN
Fnatic had easily taken the first two matches off of XctN in such as way they dominated and looked primed for a 3:0 sweep. However, the Filipino team was not ready to take the back seat to TI6 so quickly. They rebounded for an incredible performance and win in the third match. XctN wasn’t able to capitalize on their momentum and fell short in the fourth and final game. Xctn was outdrafted and the surprise Broodmother pick up from Fnatic was more than the Filipino team could handle.
