#BleedBlue Manila! Evil Geniuses is the Manila Masters champion!
Evil Geniuses take home the Manila Masters crown after a 3-1 victory against team Newbee.
North American Evil Geniuses has become the new face that run the place here in Manila after a solid victory against team Newbee earned them the firs Masters series championship title. Featuring their fine-tuned display of skill and strategy execution in 4 very lengthy games, EG continues to solidify their spot at the Dota 2 competitive scene and proves why they are one of the best that the West has to offer.
Albeit Newbee was able to show the very strength of Chinese Dota with very exceptional plays from their support-duo, Faith and kaka, who managed to keep the team afloat and even ahead during the early game stages of the series’ matches, Evil Geniuses‘ very own Suma1L, the famed mid-laner, proved to be the bane of the Chinese as his high risk, high reward gameplay arguably carried EG on their winning games, with exemplary understanding of hero mechanics such as his multiple jukes with the Ember Spirit dodging many kill attempts and even abilities that require split second timing to evade such as Disruptor’s Glimpse
With their victory team Evil Geniuses will be taking home USD 125,000 of the USD 250,000 prize pool and will be hailed as the first Masters series champion.
