EVIL GENIUSES’ VICTORY AT ESL ONE LOS ANGELES ONLINE
Evil Geniuses grabbed the North America League by the neck and totally owned it at the grand finals of ESL One Los Angeles Online. They’re back on top in the NA!
EG didn’t forgive the only team to beat them in the group stage and let Quincy Crew have it hard as they claimed top spot in North America, finishing first at the online Major with 2 stand-ins.
Game one was Arteezy dominating; EG didn’t trail once and pacedly set up a lead by focusing on controlling the map and not so much on fighting. After the opening game, EG kept on going, picking off the QC support heroes; after some mid-game trouble, EG dominated the remainder of the match with its core heroes dying only 3 times after taking in 40 kills. For a time, it was neck-to-neck in game 4, but QC hadn’t secured their position early on in the match, allowing EG to become untouchable in the last 20 minutes and leaving them to do their team in.
So, it’s Quincy Crew to the mat.
Evil Genius’ win marks the conclusion of North America and Southeast Asia in ESL One Los Angeles Online. This leaves only South America and China to wrap the whole thing up before the European and CIS bracket combo can kick-start the main event on April 4.
CHINESE LEAGUES FOR DPL AND CDA MERGE INTO A BIG EVENT
The Seventh season of Dota 2 Professional League (DPL) was scratched off as the organizer for the event slated for tomorrow April 4th, and now it’s Mars Media joining up with the Chinese Dota 2 Professional Association (CDA) for a way bigger event to run under the DPL-CDA tag.
After the 3rd and 4th rounds of the Dota Pro Circuit Major and Minor tournaments got bowled over in the last weeks due to the coronavirus outbreak, online leagues have bounced back stronger than ever. The Chinese region wants to keep the pro teams active and competing, to stay on top of their game. But online stuff got quite crowded, and since all they wanted was to provide an improved competitive scenario, they gave in and canceled their league to merge with the CDA.
“We, at Mars Media, are very excited to team up with the CDA. Our experience at hosting tournaments and leagues will allow the teams to fully focus on the matches and performance and get the proper training they need for the upcoming LAN events which we hope will resume sooner rather than later,” said the DPL organizer.
The merger will be happening after the ongoing CDA League is through, around April 19th.
