ONE Esports Dota 2 World Pro Invitational Singapore came to an end today with Vici Gaming taking down Evil Geniuses in a clean ‘3-0’ victory. Vici fought through the lower bracket to lift the trophy in Singapore while pocketing $200,000.

EG breezed into the finals undefeated in the tournament only to go ‘3-0’ against Vici Gaming, a team who had started their journey in the playoffs from the lower bracket itself. Vici played four do-or-die matches to reach the finals, where they cleaned EG quite comfortably, as we witnessed another EG choke.

In the first game between the two teams, Paparazi with his Magnus pick was able to find some great ultimates that led to Vici wrapping up the game within 50 mins.

This was followed by another 40 min game where Vici found it harder to win straight up fights against EG who were in the lead for the better part of the game. A crucial fight near the 35th-minute mark saw Vici go for a mid push, as they straight away went for the tier 4 towers and sealed the match in their favour.

The final game was a 50-minute affair as Paparazi once again snowballed out of control with Slark to destroy EG. With this Vici Gaming won their third match in a row and were crowned as the champions.
