It was a joy to watch the Dota 2 Singapore Major, with great production value and fantastic matches. A few things stood out from the Singapore Major’s results, including a surprisingly great performance from SEA team OB Esports x Neon. Further, it seems clear Chinese Dota is back to its frightening form, with both PSG.LGD and Invictus Gaming delivering stunning performances.
Evil Geniuses went undefeated in the Singapore Major playoffs this past weekend, making their way to the grand final by beating Fnatic 2-0, Invictus Gaming 2-0, and PSG.LGD 2-1. While Evil Geniuses knocked Invictus Gaming down to the lower bracket, the Chinese juggernauts came back swinging, taking out Thunder Predator 2-1. Invictus Gaming then went on to beat down tournament favourites Team Secret with a clean 2-0, and fellow countrymen PSG.LGD 2-1 to make it to the grand finals.
In the grand final, we saw Evil Geniuses take a 2-0 lead early on. It appeared as if the US organization would have no trouble taking down Invictus Gaming. However, Invictus Gaming put up some serious fight, taking it game by game and slowly dismantling Evil Geniuses until they came out on top with a 3-2, completing the reverse sweep.
