Talon Esports makes history with a top 4 placement, meanwhile Entity settles in the top 6.
SEA is doing it! Talon Esports had just knocked out Western Europe's Entity to advance to the Lower Bracket Semifinal of the Lima Major. The team has officially secured a top 4 placement at the tournament, marking their highest achievement in history. The team is only a few steps away from possibly winning their first Major.
Entity bows out in 5th-6th place, again
Entity ends their tournament with a top 6 finish - a placement that is more than familiar to the team. The Fishman-led team saw the same results in previous LANs including the PGL Arlington Major and the ESL One Malaysia in 2022.
Fishman posted his farewell on Twitter, thanking the crowd as well as the organizers. "Thanks for (your) support crowd. It's (an) amazing feeling to play in front of you. Also thanks organizers for (the) Major. You were improving every day and in the end, everything was very good," said Fishman.
Talon Esports secures top 4 at the Lima Major
Talon Esports is carrying the SEA torch further in this South American Major. They started their run in the Upper Bracket after an impressive Group Stage performance. Historically, Talon Esports had never made it out of the Group Stage of international events. But they have now upped their game beyond expectations as they not only secure an Upper Bracket slot, but also a top 4 placement.
Talon was first knocked out to the brutal Lower Bracket by Team Liquid, arguably the strongest favorites of the tournament. The team then embarked on a near-death journey, playing elimination matches against HellRaisers, Team Spirit, and Entity - winning all series. They took down three European teams to face one final obstacle before making it to the Grand Finals.
Can Talon bring down NA's king?
Talon Esports have to square off against the veteran stack in Shopify Rebellion, which will take place at 06:00 AM SGT today.
The SEA team is currently on fire as they ride a powerful momentum. Talon holds two mechanically strong cores on top of an experienced lineup and they are absolutely feeling it. Meanwhile, Shopify Rebellion was just knocked down from the Upper Bracket by a dominant Team Liquid but they are undoubtedly a force to be reckoned with.
Can SEA finally grab a top 3 placement after ages, or will Shopify Rebellion grab this opportunity for Arteezy's first Major win? Things are getting heated in the stadium!
