One of the biggest Dota 2 events to take place in Malaysia concluded with Newbee’s victory over Team Liquid at ESL One Genting 2018 last night. Not only was it the first-ever Dota 2 Minor championship to take place in Malaysia – it’s the second one in Southeast Asia – it was a very eventful tournament too.
If you weren’t here at ESL One Genting, here’s our photo essay of the whole event. Hopefully, we’ll see more esports events like this on our shores in the future.
Even though ESL One Genting 2018 was only a Dota 2 Minor event (instead of a Major championship with a larger prize pool), it was certainly a very entertaining tournament. We reckon it was also a night to remember for fans of Newbee – the Chinese team finally got its revenge over reigning TI7 champion, Team Liquid.
