Dota 2 Eric “reinnnn” Khor

FXOpen defeated Eye of the Tiger (E'oT) in the grand final of the Nexon Starter League to be crowned the first Dota 2 champion in Korea.

In the one-sided grand final in which FXO prevailed in three straight games, the champions fed the viewers with what they would like to see the most, Meepo picks, and played it exceptionally.  Yong-Min 'Febby' Kim, FXO player also displayed a spectacular performance with Pudge in the third game, forcing E'oT to fight continuously, leading to more than 25 total kills in just 11 minutes.

With the grand final win, FXOpen received $8,600 in cash and also entry tickets to The International 3 in Seattle later this year. Team EoT settled for $4,300 as runner-up of the tournament.
