Had been shocked by the defeat of EVOS over the team from Thailand, DEVITA, in the upper bracket session was the most tense moment for esports fans, especially EVOS fans. However, thanks to the fighting spirit of the EVOS team to provide the best performances and endless support given by fans, EVOS managed to get up and managed to win back over DEVITA – after previously having to taste the lower bracket match against the M8 HEXA. Really an AOV match that cannot be forgotten for both players and fans.
DEVITA is indeed a formidable opponent for EVOS. The fact that both teams have the same young players who shine in the team, makes EVOS and DEVITA matches arguably, very intense. DEVITA with Blue who is just 14 years old and EVOS with 16-year-old Wirraw. Having the same role in the team makes them a hot topic during matches.
Also present is the glowing BOOM ID in the DOTA2 esport branch. His meeting with The Prime in the semi-finals was indeed a tense moment for BOOM ID players and fans. Winning with a score of 2-0, making BOOM ID made it into the final round and met with Aura Esports who previously managed to knock out PG. Barracx in the semi-finals. After spending about half an hour in each of the match sessions, Aura Esports finally had to defeat in the score 0 – 3 over BOOM ID. The extraordinary match for DOTA2 at ESL Indonesia is indeed the most eagerly awaited. Even though DOTA2 was almost abandoned by Indonesian fans, but through this match, players and fans proved that DOTA2 was still alive and lively and its euphoria still echoed in the world of Indonesian esports.
