So, I told you about DreamHack happening over in Sweden this past weekend. The competitions have ended, so who are the winners? Meanwhile, Orena hosted one of the largest Dota 2 tournaments in Africa this weekend.
When it came to Dota 2, Na’Vi managed to claw a comeback from the lower bracket after they were knocked down by Fnatic. The two teams met again in the finals, where Na’Vi scored a resounding 3-0 victory. You can check out the video:
DreamHack was still successful for Fnatic. Considering the larger prize pool for CS: GO, it did well for them to take that tournament. You can watch their final, winning moment:
Fnatic also picked up a victory for their Battlefield 4 team. StarCraft 2 was won by Team Liquid’s Taeja and Team SK Gaming took the League of Legends prize. Surprisingly, SK Gaming was given a bit of a run for their money by Team KMT, but the world number one team pulled themselves together and came out on top.
Unfortunately, our local boys didn’t manage to take top prize in the Quake Live competition. However, they still gained some valuable experience and excellent exposure for South Africa. We are very proud of them.
Over at the Dota 2 Cup also taking place this weekend from Orena, the finals came down as you might expect in local Dota 2. That’s right, it was a battle between Bravado and Energy eSports for the finals, with Energy coming out on top. You can watch the action over on twitch.tv to see how it all went down:
All in all, a great weekend for eSports!
