DPC SEA 2021/22 Tour 1: Division 1 - Team SMG vs Fnatic

The first DPC league of the 2021/22 season in Southeast Asia will resume on Saturday, December 4. In the opening game of the day, Fnatic and Team SMG will compete in the elite division. 


In terms of regional competitiveness, Fnatic was one of the SEA's old big players that held up well. They did make it into TI10, but not with much fanfare for a team with such a well-known esports name. Fnatic, recognizing their faults, opted to reorganize their team. 


Fnatic, on the other hand, instead of undergoing a big revamp like the bulk of SEA teams, maintained several veterans on board. Anucha "Jabz" Jirawong, Djardel Jicko B., and Anucha "Jabz" Jirawong Marc Polo Luis "Raven" Fausto and "DJ" Mampusti Many DJ fans applauded the move, as DJ's leadership has always been impressive to witness in games. 


However, the new signings are young and inexperienced, thus we should expect a refreshing adjustment in Fnatic's approach to the game. Armel Paul "Armel" Tabios, a former member of TNC Predator's lineup, is by far Fnatic's greatest recruit. Armel is very good at delivering dazzling plays with a lot of scoring potential. After all, he plays the mid slot, which requires a lot of talent if he wants to carry Fnatic. Luckily, Fnatic is more than good enough to compete with T1 thanks to iconic characters like Puck, Templar Assassin, and Invoker. 


Squad SMG has a number of outstanding Malaysian players at their fingertips that could potentially boost any Southeast Asian tier-1 team, but they are currently unable to get the desired outcome due to the existing stack. The nicknames MidOne and Moon have a lot of clout in the area. 


Some analysts predicted that this squad will win the Asian qualifications for the International. This emphasizes the high caliber of characters in some of the positions. However, after struggling to enter for the year's main competition, the lads continued to compete in a slew of low-level tournaments, occasionally kicking absolute horror and even winning. 


For a while, the team performed together. The lone change before the start of the current DPC season was the addition of Raging Potato, the only Filipino in the league, who has participated in multiple TIs and has primarily played for Execration and Neon in recent years. Because this is the team's debut in the Asian elite, it's tough to predict what lies ahead in this league, but they must avoid being the whipping boys. 


Which team do you have your heart set on? Do you support team SMG or fnatic? 

Whatever team you pick, may the chances be ever in your favor! On December 4th, 2021, at 4 p.m., you can watch the game live.
