EG crowned first jD Masters champion

posted by ReiNNNN, 4 years ago

After a rough two days journey in joinDOTA Masters I, eu Evil Geniuses defeated kz in straight games to be crowned the winner of the first joinDOTA Masters.

On their way to the Grand Final, Evil Geniuses defeated fr Western Wolves and eu Mousesports in the semis. on the other hand, took down ro Dignitas and se Counter Logic Gaming prior to the Grand Final.

The highlight of the tournament is undoubtedly the game between Evil Geniuses and Mousesports which lasted for 86 minutes. The game is such a nail-biter that a cult was started in our forums here to appreciate the A-game both teams brought to the table. Since words cannot express the epic-ness of the game, we shall let the VoD do all the talking.

joinDOTA was able to catch us Jimmy 'DeMoN' Ho shortly after the game:

It feels really great winning in such a close epic game. During the game itself felt really intense but in my mind I thought we would have to do some sort of "all out" thing. I continuously told MiSeRy to buy a Divine Rapier because I felt there was little to no chance of winning (good thing I was wrong *laughs*). Fear on the other hand, wanted to play it safe and in the end we pulled through.


Evil Geniuses will be walking away 500 Euros richer.

JoinDOTA Masters II will begin on the 24th of March at 16:15 CET. The first game will be between by Power Rangers and defending champion, eu Evil Geniuses.

Due to Na'Vi's tight schedule this weekend, they withdrew from joinDOTA Masters II and their spot has been replaced by Western Wolves. Na'Vi will be playing in joinDOTA Masters V. Brackets are available here.

More NaVi games means more love. I'm glad they are willing to schedule NaVi into another Masters instead of dropping them entirely. jD ftw.

In a way I'm glad that nav'i wasn't around it probable would end up with early push but instead we got an epic show ;)

Fantastic games for the first JD masters cup. I don't know if the teams can put up these kinds of games on a regular basis, but if they can, DotA is going to be huge!
