Global Esports Dota 2 has recently solidified their roster with the addition of Jeet "Swifty" Kundra as midlaner and Balaji "BlizzarD" Ramnarayan as carry player. Since the roster change in June, Global Esports has been looking strong, consistently contending for a top position in the Indian Dota 2 scene.

With great results in ESL India Premiership, the Dota 2 Global Esports roster has been invited to the ESL Clash of Nations: Bangkok 2019. It was a questionable invite as there were still doubts regarding who was the better – Global Esports or Entity Gaming.

Wait no further! Global Esports has delivered their answer right in time. The red and blue jersey squad has beaten Entity Gaming convincingly in a Bo3 to win the Taiwan Excellence Gaming Cup, a ₹5 LAKH Dota 2 tournament. The September 27-28 tournament ended with joy to the Global Esports squad and their fans.

The CS:GO Equivalent

The CS:GO event for Taiwan Excellence Gaming Cup took place the same day in Mumbai. U Mumba Esports has defeated BL4ZE Esports 2-0 to claim the lion’s share in the ₹5 LAKH tournament.

The interesting thing was that U Mumba Esports finished #2 in the group D of the qualifier. However, as Entity Gaming forfeited the tournament, U Mumba Esports took the high seed spot in the play-off. Their path crossed with BL4ZE Esports not once but twice.

Though the orange and black jersey squad lost the initial Bo1 in the upper bracket, they quickly came back in the grand final. With a convincing 2-0 against BL4ZE Esports, U Mumba Esports has won their fair share of prize money as well as a ticket to the LAN final in Taiwan.
