Following an astonishing lower bracket run, OG has taken down Chinese Dota 2 organization Team Aster to win ESL One Malaysia 2022.
The OG roster seemed confident as always in their approach as they took down their rivals in a convincing fashion with a 3-0 score in the best-of-five series.
Due to Team Aster’s flawless upper bracket run, they were clearly the favorites to win the grand finals. However, it seems that OG had other plans.
Team Aster’s Du “Monet” Peng managed to put up a stellar performance in game two of the series and got a rampage as he was trying to defend his high ground, but his efforts were in vain as OG proceeded to crush the game and the series.
With this victory, OG takes home a whopping $175,000 in prize money out of the tournament’s massive $400,000 prize pool, while Team Aster gets to take home $85,000 for landing a second-place finish.
OG offlaner Ammar “ATF” Al-Assaf was perhaps the star of the event with his amazing plays from the position three role. The teenager showed exceptional proficiency with the hero Mars as his opponents struggled to find a way around his Arena.
