The ESL One: Birmingham 2020 Online: Southeast Asia tournament is a six team online tournament. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, ESL has had to move most of its esports tournaments to an online format. The ESL One Birmingham LAN event stands cancelled. Instead teams will compete in regional online leagues. The South East Asian tournament has a $40,000 prize pool, with the winner receiving a significant chunk of money.
The tournament has a single-stage round robin format. The top two teams move to the upper bracket playoffs while the bottom two teams are eliminated. The third and fourth placed teams will move to the lower bracket of the playoffs.
Team Adroit has defeated TNC Predator and Fnatic in their opening two matches. The team has punched above their weight and Team Adroit has definitely stepped up so far. Team Adroit has a momentum in the tournament and the players will have the slight advantage going in this match against Reality Rift.
Team Adroit has a Philippines roster that has produced notable results recently. The team also 2-0’ed Reality Rift in the Hephaestus Cup. With their current momentum and the fact that Reality Rift is yet to produce any notable result in the ESL One Birmingham 2020 - Online: Southeast Asian tournament, Team Adroit should have a relatively easy time. Adroit has already defeated top tier SEA teams like Fnatic and TNC Predator. Compared to them, Reality Rift should offer little resistance.
