The joinDOTA League Season 12 European Division 1 Grand Final went down last night. After a back and forth best-of-five series between The Final Tribe and Team Singularity*, this season's European champions were crowned. Meanwhile, the first Americas Div 1 Grand Finalist has been decided and Asia's Div 1 playoffs are about to kick off. GG WP @SNG_esports! Great series! We are the @joinDOTA League Season 12 Europe champions!#DoTheWork #FinalTribe— The Final Tribe (@thefinaltribe) April 10, 2018

The Final Tribe's regular season had been almost perfect. They took 2-0 victories over their first three opponents, but met the also undefeated Team Singularity* in their final match and lost. Both teams had far outclassed the rest of the squads in their group, who all ended the regular season with a 2-6 record.

The Swedish squad were knocked down to the lower bracket by a 2-0 loss to 5 Anchors No Captain in the first round of playoffs, but fought their way back to the final with a 2-0 over Double Dimension* and some 2-0 revenge over 5 Anchors. Next up was another rematch for all the marbles - last night's best-of-five against Singularity.

In the final series for The Final Tribe, Axel 'PABLO' Källman's Pangolier played a huge role. The Final Tribe valued the hero very highly, first-picking him in three games and first phase banning him in a fourth. In the two games where Pablo didn't play Pango, he was given Dark Willow instead - both also first-phase picks. Singularity took Pangolier for themselves in Game 3 when The Final Tribe left him in the pool past the first phase. It helped to secure them one of their two wins.

In the end, The Final Tribe took the series 3-2, took their revenge for their regular season loss and secured themselves the $2000 prize. We hope to see them back for Season 13!
