ESL India Premiership Finals: Jin Kazama Claims Clash Royale Title, Team Signify Win Epic Dota 2 Final & Entity Gaming Bags CS: GO Title
The ESL India Winter Season Finale was conducted from February 3 to 5 with the Indian Gaming Show at the Pragati Maidan, New Delhi. HP India, ESL India and Nodwin Gaming were the organizers of the event.
The four best teams from CS: GO, Dota 2 and Clash Royale locked horns for the ultimate throne. Some fantastic games were played in the 3 days of the event. Ultimately, only one team from each of the three games could claim the throne.
First up, in Clash Royale, Jin Kazama claimed the ultimate victory.
In Dota 2, Team Signify clutched the victory after defeating Reckoning Esports in an epic final. It has been a fantastic year for the team comprising of players “Crowley”, “Negi”, “NO_Chanc3”, “Swifty” and “BlizzarD” as they swept all three titles this year.
Finally, in CS: GO Entity Gaming defeated 2EZ Gaming in an epic final to claim the winter CS: GO title. Entity Gaming’s squad comprises of players “PSY”, “DAV”, “SOLO”, “EXCALI” and “HELLRANGER”.
With this event, the 2018-19 season comes to an end. This season of the ESL India Premiership had a total prize pool of ₹1 crore. The pool was divided between the three games with Counter-Strike: Global Offensive getting ₹45 lacs, Dota 2 getting ₹45 lacs as well and Supercell’s Clash Royale getting ₹10 lacs.
This season was clouded with the cheating scandal of Optic India’s “Forsaken” who was caught cheating and ended up getting a 5-year ban. The fall season finale thus had to be reconducted between 2EZ gaming & Slaughter Rage Army. 2EZ Gaming won this game.
Nonetheless, this season was a fantastic one and we got to see brilliant matches being played across all three games along with some spectacular LAN events. We cannot wait to see what ESL India has in store for us for the next season!
