Wow! That’s all we can muster up after that incredible Grand Finals. Geek Fam and Team Adroit pushed themselves to their very limits and put up a heck of a BO5 showdown in the Grand Finals of the WeSave! Charity Play SEA Division.
In the end, Team Adroit was the team that stood tall, edging out Geek Fam by a score of 3-2. Both teams showcased why they were two of the 3 teams representing the region in the ESL One Los Angeles 2020 Major.
Adroit vs Geek Fam
Geek Fam won Game 1 on the back of Karl’s impressive Shadow Fiend performance, securing the win with 26-7 scoreline. However, Adroit struck back in Game 2 and Game 3 to boost themselves to a 2-1 lead.
The crucial 4th game ended up going the way of Geek Fam after Karl’s overfarmed Leshrac just decimated the Adroit lineup. None of the Adroit heroes could handle the ridiculous amount of damage that Karl was doing and just fell one by one which pushed the series to a deciding Game 5.
Game 5 was by far the best game of the series. Just take a look at the experience graph.

Adroit was dominating the laning stage with their superior early game heroes, but Geek Fam gained control thanks to Kuku’s Tidehunter.
Adroit answered with BKBs which saw them once again start controlling the flow of the game. They were about to take Geek Fam’s barracks, but a sick teamfight on the back of Karl’s Void Spirit Buyback saw Geek Fam regain the advantage.
Karl decided to make things even tenser with a Rapier Purchase on his Void Spirit. Although it didn’t have the desired impact initially, it proved to be crucial for Geek Fam’s success in the late game.
But an incredible teamfight from Adroit, saw them get the Rapier from Karl and destroyed the Geek Fam lineup in the next few engagements, allowing them to claim the win.

So Adroit are you Champions of the WeSave! Charity Play SEA Division. What a tournament it was. Seeing some of the best in SEA going toe-to-toe against each other helped a lot of us lose track time in our quarantine. We hope there is some other online tournament to replace the void.
