[UPDATE]: There has been an error regarding the scoring of the grand finals between WG.Unity and Geek Fam. The article has been rectified to reflect that.
The ESL One Genting 2017 is just a few weeks away and the Malaysian qualifiers have finally come to a close. WarriorsGaming.Unity managed to defeat amateur Dota 2 team, Geek Fam, with a score of 3-1 in the grand finals of the ESL One Genting Malaysian qualifiers.
WarriorsGaming.Unity had a spectacular run in the qualifiers by taking down local team Mineski X in a best of one series. Staying on in the winner’s bracket, WG.Unity took a clean score of a 2-0 win over Fantastic Gaming, sending them down to the loser bracket to face off against team Geek Fam. Geek Fam and Fantastic Gaming were tied at 1-1 but the former managed to pull through and go on to the finals to play against WG.Unity.
In the grand finals, WG.Unity went into the grand finals with a 1-0 advantage as it was a best of five series. Geek Fam didn’t go down without putting up a fight as they managed to win game two with the score tied at 1-1. WG.Unity decided to not waste anymore time, and cleaned up the tournament with two more consecutive wins, earning them their ticket to the main stage event at ESL One Genting 2017.
Geek Fam definitely has the potential to grow with the amount of new talent they have, but WG.Unity is the team that has more tournament experience; after all, the latter took down one match from Team OG in great style. With this victory, Digi will be officially sponsoring WG.Unity to help them prepare for ESL One Genting, which is happening from the 6th to the 8th of January 2017.
