MS Chonburi has won the Thailand Open Qualifiers for the ONE Esports Jakarta Invitational.
In the grand finals, MS Chonburi off against Unknown in a best-of-three match for a spot at the Kuala Lumpur Regional Qualifiers.
How MS Chonburi defeated Unknown to win the ONE Esports Jakarta Invitational Thailand Open Qualifiers
Game one saw MS Chonburi pick Troll Warlord for Japan and Meepo for Nikko. The pair carried their team, going 6/0/10 and 7/2/10 respectively.
Unknown’s comp of Outworld Devourer and Juggernaut had no answer to the Meepo, and they had to concede at the 21-minute mark.
In game two, MS Chonburi banned Meepo at the last pick, perhaps worried that Unknown would turn the tables on them.
Instead, MS Chonburi opted for a Spectre, Pangolier, and Mars combo, while Unknown picked up Snapfire, Troll Warlord, and Alchemist.
Unknown were obviously hoping to win the game before Chonburi could get their late-game Spectre online, but unfortunately, that did not happen, as Nikko’s Pangolier ended up wreaking havoc, finishing the game 8/1/15.
Once Japan’s Spectre picked up a Diffusal Blade and a Manta Style it was all over, with MS Chonburi closing out the game in just 24 minutes with a 28-12 score.
MS Chonburi has now qualified for the Kuala Lumpur Regional Qualifiers, which will take place on March 7-8 at the Sunway Pyramid in Kuala Lumpur.
The winner of the Regional Qualifier will earn a spot at the ONE Esports Jakarta Invitational taking place at the Indonesia Convention Exhibition on 18-19 April.
The Invitational will see 12 of the best teams from around the world compete for a prize pool of US$500,000.
