ESL One Germany 2020’s round
robin group stage action continued today and saw one of the biggest upsets in
the tournament with the Yellow Submarine name returning with a new roster after
nearly 4 years.
ESL One Germany’s final day of
round one Dota 2 action would end today, with three best-of-three series as the
teams fought for the first time in the event. After Alliance took down the
newcomers, EXTREMUM, it was time to see Team Nigma in action, with their famed
captain, Kuro “KuroKy” Salehi Takhasomi, still out of action. Unfortunately for
Nigma, they were also to be without Maroun “GH” Merhej for game one, for
unknown reasons, and would require a secondary stand-in for the first game.
We were ready for fireworks as
soon as the series begun with Aliwi “w33” Omar grabbing a Meepo – which we all love
to see. However, even in a first game that lasted nearly an hour, Yellow Submarine
left Nigma in their dust, with a Faceless Void destroying everything in its
path. But, with GH back for the next game, Nigma seemed to have better control,
fighting their way into a nearly 10,000 net worth lead at one point – just before
things went horribly wrong. The comeback begun a little after the half hour
mark and ten minutes later, Nigma were far behind, as YeS pummeled them into
the ground and ensured a huge upset.
With that, Yes took an intense
2-0 victory in their first series back into Dota 2 – and over a squad of
extremely well-known players too. At the time of writing, one series is
currently being played between Natus Vincere and Cyber Legacy as the first
round of group stage round robin action comes to an end at ESL One Germany. It
remains to be seen whether YeS can continue on in this manner, with their next
matchup currently unconfirmed.
