Peru spoiled the party for host nation Turkey at the Global Esports Games as they produced a commanding performance to secure the DOTA 2 open team gold medal in Istanbul.
Throughout the tournament, the winning outfit showed exactly why they are all professionals as they dominated all who stood in their way, including in the final as they cruised to a 2-0 triumph.
There is no shortage of talent in the country either so it is by no means a flash in the pan.
“DOTA 2 is huge in Peru, probably the most common game, with a major following – and it is still growing,” MoOz said.
“We have places where people meet to play video games online, and DOTA was always the game.
“It is a culture for us.
“There is a lot of raw talent in Peru.
“We play a lot.
“You’ve got to have discipline and dedication and be smart about it as well.
“We are all professionals for different teams, but we bonded quickly for Peru.
“With good players, you can do that without too much time together.
“But you need to be humble and willing to learn and have confidence too.”
Earlier in the day Mongolia got the better of Saudi Arabia to claim the last spot on the podium.
The women’s DOTA 2 tournament top three was also cemented on the final day as Singapore downed Argentina 2-0.
Vietnam clinched a dramatic PUBG Mobile gold medal in the early hours of the morning as they survived a sixth-round exit to eventual runners-up Saudi Arabia.
The Saudis finished five points short of Vietnam’s 102 total while Chinese Taipei were stunned in the final match by an Azeri team that wiped them out early, condemning them to third place with a score of 89.
The match marked the end of the Global Esports Games which now looks forward to the next edition in Riyadh which officially started with the flag handover ceremony.
