Goliath Gaming took the top spot in both titles on offer in this past weekend’s Syntech Masters. In the case of both the CS:GO and Dota 2 series, Goliath Gaming battled from the loser’s bracket to secure the championship.

 

The victories saw the South African MGO walk off with a cool R60,000 for their efforts.

Dota 2

The Dota 2 finals saw Goliath Gaming facing White Rabbit Gaming in the best of five series. White Rabbit Gaming entered the final with a round advantage, thanks to the flawless victory run up until then. It took Goliath Gaming the next – and only – three rounds to secure the top spot in the Dota 2 Syntech Masters Pro Series.

 

The final standings after the weekend saw the teams place as follows:

  • 1st Place: Goliath Gaming [R30,000 cash]
