ESL One Los Angeles Online kicked off today with a host of Dota 2 games from different regions and for Southeast Asia, it would be the monumental battle between Geek Fam and Team Adroit.
Both Geek Fam and Adroit have quickly risen to the top of the SEA Dota 2 scene this season, especially since TNC Predator have fallen off a fair amount after winning the first Major. While much of the Dota 2 Pro Circuit is currently cancelled, many organisers have put together some amazing online events – such as ESL One Los Angeles Online. Having last played against one another just a few days ago at the WeSave! Charity Play event, in which Adroit took a 3-2 victory in an absolutely amazing series, GF would be looking for some revenge.
Right off the start, Adroit continued their dominance from the previous event as they never allowed GF a chance to get off the mark in the half an hour match, giving up only seven kills. While the second game was far more even between the two teams for most of the early period, GF constantly made small errors which almost gifted the game to Adroit.
However, Geek Fam managed to make a great stand in defense and push the game to nearly an hour thanks to Karl ‘Karl’ Jayme’s Templar Assassin, but it was nowhere near enough to save the game or the series as Adroit took a 2-0 victory.
There is still a plethora of Dota 2 action to catch in the ESL One Los Angeles Online event today with China currently ongoing and North and South America still to come as the day progresses, with more SEA action coming tomorrow as Fnatic and BOOM Esports begin their tournament.
