SBTC Esports had to receive its first defeat at VCS, so the tournament only left Team Secret to keep the unbeaten streak in the summer.
Entering the first match of the 3rd week of VCS Summer 2022, many gamers rated Team Whales (TW) as being in the “bottom line” because this team had just lost 2 consecutive matches in the 2nd week of competition. Meanwhile, SBTC Esports (SE) is more appreciated because it is holding an unbeaten streak of 4 matches in a row, even beating names like GAM or SGB.
But contrary to many people’s predictions, “the whales waded upstream” and defeated Tam Ke Hoi by surprise.
In the first game, nPer played very well with Gnar when he continuously had solo kills against Nagiya, even in teamfights, this top laner also contributed great hard control. Thanks to that, SE took a pretty convincing 1-0 lead against TW.

In game 2, the “champion in the fans’ hearts” suddenly “choked” extremely hard: DNK no longer successfully ganked, nPer didn’t have any solo kills, Celebrity didn’t have space to release. The damage of Aphelios, Dia1 or Palette also did not create enough mutations to keep the game for SE. In contrast, the TW members played extremely well and continuously won important fights, thereby ending the game at 36 minutes.

In game 3, SE continued to make a lot of mistakes from moves to skills and TW severely punished that. From the mistake of Dia1 to DNK, TW quickly got 2 Baron buffs in a row and established an extremely overwhelming position against SE. In the end, TW flooded into the mid lane to crush the “chicken” and ended the match with a 2-1 result.
