Top Clans 2020: Galaxy Racer make Malaysia proud as Dota 2 champions
Against all odds, Malaysian representatives, Galaxy Racer, refused to surrender and emerged as champions of the Top Clans 2020 Dota 2 league.
To lay claim to their championship title, Galaxy Racer defeated Motivate.Trust Gaming 3-1 in the best-of-five Grand Finals. Galaxy Racer had the first two matches in the bag without much effort, which served as a wake-up call for the Thai team to buck up. They eventually retaliated by winning the third match, but repeating their winning strategy in the final round was a costly mistake, with Galaxy Racer adapting and overcoming the apex squad, winning gold and the champion’s cash prize of US$7,000. Motivate.Trust Gaming and Adroit Esports were rewarded US$4,000 and US$2,000 as the runner-ups and second-runner ups.
The dark horse amongst fan favourites like Motivate.Trust Gaming and Adroit Esports, Galaxy Racer didn’t have a good start in the Playoffs after losing to Motivate in the upper-bracket finals. Fortunately, instead of being outright removed from the tournament, they were pushed down to the lower-bracket finals, this time against Adroit Esports, Not giving up hope and having newfound resolve, they swept Adroit off their feet and won 2-0 against the Filipinos, granting them a second shot at the Thai team in the Grand Finals, ending in sweet revenge for the Malaysian squad.
At last, we’re halfway through the final stage of Top Clans 2020, with MARVEL Super War and Rules of Survival left for the Grand Finals.
