China’s PSG reigns supreme at WePlay AniMajor
The victory came to no one’s surprise, as the PSG had shown a good deal of proficiency and consistency throughout the tournament. Starting as early as the Group stage, the Chinese ensemble had done easy pickings of their adversaries, having pushed aside teams of the likes of Nigma and Alliance to the sidelines.
The story wasn’t very different for EG, who also over-performed during the Group stage and Playoffs alike, having completely ended any hopes for qualification to the upcoming T110 for Nigma and TCN Predator. Nonetheless, the $200 prize pot ended up falling on PSG’s lap, as did the AniMajor’s title and a good chunk of 500 DC points.
The duel was a difficult one for the North Americans, who had to deal with a smashing starting as early as game one. Though they gave their strategy a little bit of a spin as early as game two – gaining a little bit of control that lasted them a little more than half an hour-, it didn’t quite suffice to make up for lost ground, and in spite of snatching an Aegis near the end, the series remained in PSG’s favor, closing down to a final 3-0 total win for Asians.
With the WePlay AniMajor now ended, all eyes are set on the soon-starting The International tourney, which is set to begin in earnest this August 5th; both PSG.LGD and Evil Geniuses are top seeds for Dota Pro Circuit event and will compete for a humongous cash prize of $40 million.
