Quincy Crew win ESL One Thailand 2020: Americas

By Matt DixonAugust 30, 2020
Quincy Crew took first place at ESL One Thailand 2020: Americas with a clean 3:0 sweep against Thunder Predator. Not only do they take home $28,000 USD, this win makes it five league victories in a row for Quincy Crew. Despite Thunder Predator entering the grand final from the upper bracket, they seemed unable to take any ground from Quincy Crew who stomped the finals like it was a warm-up. Game 2 was over in 15 minutes — before any Tier 2 towers even fell. For the past few months, Quincy Crew have looked like the Team Secret of the Americas.
Things didn’t always seem so smooth for Quincy Crew. They were dropped by their organization at the start of the pandemic — leaving them to fend for themselves in the pro scene. Despite this, they have been the top team across the Americas for some time, even when Evil Geniuses were still playing in the NA region.
They had their share of hardship during this event too. They played the first half of the group stage without their captain but still managed to come out on top of the group stage. Things got harder when they immediately fell to the lower brackets of the playoffs, but after that, Quincy Crew didn’t drop a single game, even getting revenge on 4 Zoomers for sending them to the lower bracket.
The MVP awards for this tournament will be revealed soon – who got your vote? Last time we looked at this league Yawar “Yawar” Hassan’s huge Rosh-pit Chronospheres got our vote, but now Rodrigo “Lelis” Santos is making us think twice with this 4-man vac-wall combo…
When the pro-Dota scene can finally return to LAN events, we’re very eager to see how Quincy Crew perform against teams from other regions, especially amongst the more competitive European teams.
If you can’t get enough of Quincy Crew or are still waiting to see a South American team take a big win, you can see the best teams of the NA and SA regions keep battling it out in the OMEGA League: Americas, Divine Division.
