Performance by D’Xavier
D’Xavier’s performance at SEA EC 2023 is the clearest proof that this team is very popular with fans, especially domestic fans.
After four days of intense competition at SEA EC 2023, Vietnam’s number 1 seed – VN1 team (D’Xavier) ended up in the Top 4 final. This is indeed an unfortunate result because VN1 is completely capable of breaking through in the last game of the Finals. However, luck is what this representative lacks.
Before that, the opportunity for the shooters to break through in the last game was completely open thanks to the close score between VN1 and the top teams.
Despite trying to apply all the combat experience in major tournaments, VN1 still could not escape the pincer position between the two Thai teams in the final rounds of the game. Stopping in the Top 4, Dinh Duong “Rabiz” Thanh – captain of team D’Xavier immediately apologized to the fans for not being able to maintain the leading position and complete the set goal.
Reaction of the Fan
It seemed that D’Xavier would receive a lot of criticism when he missed the opportunity to reach the top at SEA EC 2023, but the reaction of the fans was completely opposite. At Rabiz’s apology post, many comments of cheering, encouragement and condolences to the captain in general, as well as VN1 in particular, continuously appeared. Skimming through, it is difficult to find a criticism or malicious comment for the talented fighters of Vietnam.
So far, receiving defeats in international tournaments will certainly more or less make players receive blame. But with D’Xavier, “stumbling” in the arena did not disappoint their fans. On the contrary, the members also received a lot of valuable encouragement. Certainly, this is what many Esports teams wish to have.
Hopefully with the enthusiastic cheers from the fans, D’Xavier will have more motivation to “revenge” at the PMPL Spring and above all, the upcoming 32nd SEA Games. We wish the members of D’Xavier to stay strong and have a spectacular comeback to not disappoint their beloved fans.
