ESL One Genting 2018 powered by Intel, Malaysia’s first ever Dota 2 Minor, has come to an end. We had a week of world-class Dota 2 action delivered by 16 teams competing for the coveted trophy, invaluable Pro Circuit points, and a share of the US$400,000 prize pool. In the end, it was Newbee who bested all of their opponents and lifted the ESL One trophy in front of the roaring crowd in the Arena of Stars, after a nail-biting grand final versus Team Liquid.
Vici Gaming vs. Newbee 0-2
Virtus.pro vs. Evil Geniuses 0-2
Team Secret vs. Newbee 0-2
