Neon Esports Wins Skyesports Championship 4.0 Dota 2 Tournament
A dominant performance results in a flawless victory for the finalists.
It was a pleasant surprise for the Indian gaming community when Dota 2 and CS:GO were announced as competing titles for the Skyesports Championship 4.0.
The grand finals of both events were initially scheduled to take place on 24th December in front of a live audience at the Bombay Exhibition Center, NESCO in Goregaon, Mumbai. Unfortunately, the Dota 2 finalists - Neon Esports and Reaper Hashtag, ran into some visa issues due to which the final best-of-five series had to be played online yesterday on 19th December.
Reaper Hashtag tried its best, but with revenge on its mind Neon Esports was able to put up a formidable performance, delivering a clean sweep to become the Dota 2 champions of Skyesports Championship 4.0.
Neon Esports crowned as the Dota 2 champions of Skyesports Championship 4.0
A total of three competitive esports titles are part of the Skyesports Championship 4.0 which will be coming to an end on 24th December following its LAN event in Mumbai.
Dota 2, CS:GO, and Pokemon UNITE, all three games were about to witness its respective champions being crowned in front of a live audience at the Bombay Exhibition Center in NESCO, Goregaon.
However, the grand finals of Dota 2 had to be played out early as both finalists from the SEA (Southeast Asia) region faced visa issues, due to which the event was shifted online and the best-of-five match was played yesterday between Neon Esports and Reaper Hashtag.
The teams had already faced each other twice during the course of this tournament, once during the SEA Qualifiers and again during the Upper Bracket Final of the Phase 2 Qualifiers. Neon Esports had won the first encounter with a '2-0' scoreline while Reaper Hashtag returned the favor the second time around with a '3-2' finish.
All this added to the grand final match between the two teams from the SEA region, raising the stakes and making it an exciting series to watch.
Neon Esports was in no mood to waste time and got down to business, winning all three games in a row to walk away as the champions, forcing a 'GG' call in the last game in twenty minutes. Neon Esports was more than prepared to take on the challengers and earned the trophy along with lion's share of the prize money.
