News for ESL One - New York 2015
Vega Squadron emerged victorious and crowned themselves as the winner of ESL One New York against all odds.
After defeating the TI 5 champions, Vega continued their stellar performance in the semifinals where they steamrolled the former TI champions, Invictus Gaming.
This was arguably the most anticipated game of Day 1 with the TI5 champions debuting their new roster with the addition of Arteezy. Although the spotlight is on Team Evil Geniuses, Vega Squadron is no pushover, as they defeated NiP and Na'Vi during the qualifiers and now EG at the main event.
