Good Game Convention 2014 Day 3 Wrap
The 3rd and final day of Good Game Convention has ended, with a massive turnout to watch the finals of the ok.- DOTA2 cup, Magic the Gathering tournament, Hearthstone fireside gathering and the Singtel DOTA 1v1 competition.
Huge crowds thronged the Singtel booth, as the 1 v 1 DOTA action heated up, and there was standing room only at the giant LED wall, where the remaining top 4 teams in Southeast Asia battled it out for the $50,000 prize.
Undoubtedly the highlight of the day was SingSing’s 1 v 1 DOTA2 show matches where audience participants were invited to pit their skills against SingSing in solo-mid competition. No surprisingly, SingSing emerged undefeated after 5 exhibition matches, despite being heavily disadvantaged because he had to play the crowd’s favorite hero suggestion.
Once the ok.- DOTA2 cup got underway, the crowd stood transfixed as the top teams displayed their teamwork and lightning fast reflexes. Team G-Guard from Malaysia emerged from the losers brackets, after beating team KS with a score of 2-1.
The grand finals finally got underway at 9 pm between team CSW, a mixed Australian and Singaporean team against G-Guard, the malaysian team. CSW went into the finals a natural 1-0 advantage due to their victory in the winner’s bracket. In the first game, CSW chose to go with a pushing line-up, with Tinker, Faceless Void and a Chen! G-Guard picked an Ember Spirit and a Naga Siren as their choice of carries, and both teams played cautiously, prolonging the game to nearly 90 minutes, before Ember bought a divine rapier, but had it taken away by CSW, to split push to victory.
Taking a 2-0 lead into the next game, CSW decided to go for a more aggressive pick choosing PA as their main carry. That paid big dividends, as the fat Phantom Assassin slashed her way to a beyond godlike streak, ending the game in convincing fashion after only 40 minutes of play.
