After six intense days of DOTA in Singapore, the ONE Esports Dota 2 Singapore World Pro Invitational finally comes to a close with Vici Gaming coming out as the victors.
Team Virtus.pro defeated Na’Vi in the lower bracket to play against Alliance in the lower bracket quarterfinals. Meanwhile, Vici Gaming defeated TNC Predator to face Team Secret next. Team Evil Geniuses secured an easy position in the Grand Finals from the upper bracket. Vici Gaming then had to face Team Gambit for their spot in the grand final against Team Evil Geniuses.
Concluded on the 22nd of December with a surprising turn of events, Team Vici Gaming defeated Team Evil Geniuses with a score of 3-0 in a best of five series. Vici Gaming takes home the champion title and a cool US$200,000 out of the US$500,000 prize pool.
I would like to congratulate Vici Gaming for winning the inaugural ONE Esports Dota 2 Singapore World Pro Invitational. We had two objectives for the ONE Esports Dota 2 Singapore World Pro Invitational. Firstly, we wanted to deliver an amazing competition experience for fans and players with extensive meet and greet sessions, cosplay, and online and in-stadium giveaways and contests. Secondly, we wanted to showcase that Singapore, a country that in its short history has become a global tech and innovation hub, is a perfect place to host world-class esports events. We resoundingly delivered on those objectives, and we look forward to hosting the ONE Esports Dota 2 Jakarta Invitational in April as well as the ONE Esports Singapore Major in June next year.” Carlos Alimurung, CEO of ONE Esports
