GEST April Playoffs
Tie-breakers have all been settled and we're finally here, the playoffs of April's GEST International DotA cup. With just 8 teams left, who will take the title of the best in South East Asia (for the month of April)?
MSI-EvoGT started the tie breakers last night by winning Trust. Skynet had to play both their tie breakers this morning, and fell to Trust and MSI-Evo in succession. MSI-EvoGT ends up in the top spot in Group D, and Trust followed in second.
This leaves the possibility of having a Pinoy top four wide open. Will it be a all Pinoy affair in the semifinals? Or will the Malaysians continue their flawless streak in the quarterfinals? Can MSI-EvoGT be the first team to defend their GEST crown?
The brackets are as follows:
Invasion Red crash out after losing to iZone 125 in our first quarterfinal. Can their Malaysian counterparts Orange exact revenge and beat Mineski? Stay tuned to find out.
Update 2: Pacific are our 2nd semi-finalist, beating Trust in the other quarterfinal. Pinoy 1-2-3-4 incoming?
Update 3: Orange keeps the Malaysian flag flying, beating Mineski to be the only non-Filipino team left as MSI EvoGT beat iDeal. Will the third time be the charm for Orange?
Update 4: Izone is our first finalist, with a dominating use of a repelled Shadow Fiend to destroy the barracks of Pacific despite a strong defense by Queen of Pain and Krobelus.
Update 5: We're going to have a new winner of GEST as Orange beat defending champions MSI EvoGT to set up a final clash with iZone. Stay tuned for more epic DotA action coming right your way.
