After a hard fought best-of-three final, Orange eSports has been crowned the champions of the joinDOTA Masters IX with Absolute Legends taking second place for the third time.
In the semi finals, Orange and aL took down MUFC and Mineski respectively to advance to the Grand Final with the game between Mineski and aL pushing to almost 60 minutes with bLeek getting double Divine Rapiers on Nature's Prophet.
In game one of the Grand Finals, aL went with their usual Antimage pick while Orange opted for a hero that has seen less game time lately, Mirana. Right off the bat, Orange went on the aggressive, getting a quick first blood on the bottom lane followed by a successful gank on aL, netting a triple kill on YamateH's Mirana. Orange kept on the pressure on aL, not allowing them to get the items needed on their heroes. aL called GG at around 30 minutes with a 4-25 kill score.

Orange continued with their aggressive play into game two picking up heroes that they are confident with like Queen of Pain, Windrunner and Invoker. aL opted for the late game carry Syllabear. With an aggressive trilane from Orange, Musica on Syllabear was unable to farm comfortable, couple that with three quick deaths set him back even more. Eventhough, he was able to get his Radiance up in due time, it was all too late and aL calls GG at around 30 minute. This marks the third time that aL have appeared in a joinDOTA Master's final and have taken second place in all three.
