The tournament took place in Frankfurt’s Commerzbank Arena with thousands of spectators packing themselves into the stadium over the weekend. The video features some impressive shots of the crowd and gives viewers an idea of the celebrity status that surrounds these professional players. Yet at the same time they remain accessible as fans crowd around for autographs and photos.
Eight of the world’s top DotA 2 teams entered the tournament, but only one team could take the title and trophy. In the end, China’s Invictus Gaming was victorious, shutting out Evil Geniuses in the deciding match of the final.
The next ESL One tournament will feature Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. It will take place at Gamescom in Cologne from August 14th to 17th.
