Invictus Gaming takes ESL One DotA 2 crown with perfect game
Invictus Gaming was crowned ESL One champions, in front of around 35,000 spectators, after defeating Evil Geniuses 2-1.

The Chinese team sealed the deal, and threw down the gauntlet to other DotA 2 sides, with a perfect game in which Evil Geniuses failed to secure a single kill. With that, the team took the title and over $80,000 in prize money.

ESL One was a notable event in more ways than one. Not only did it feature some of the world’s best teams, but it packed more than 35,000 spectators into a World Cup class football stadium where they saw the action unfold on a screen measuring 4096 square feet.

The tournament also took place one month before The International, which will feature a prize pool of over $10 million. Invictus Gaming will have momentum on its side after blitzing through the competition, but the rest of the field now has some time to study them and their tactics.

A full tournament bracket can be found on the ESL One website. ESL One will now switch its attention to Counter-Strike: Global Offensive with a tournament that will take place in Cologne from August 14th-17th. It will have a prize pool of over $250,000.
