The four-team competition took place on October 13-14 in Hyderabad, India, following ESL's announcement last Thursday with an Indian spot being included in ESL Pro League Season 8 Asia's expansion.
In the semi-finals, OpTic India crushed 2ez in two maps with ease (16-7 on Nuke & 16-6 on Inferno). Slaughter Rage Army dodged the bullet for a third map against Brutality after claiming Cache, 16-7, and edging out the overtime win on Dust2, 19-17.
Agneya "Marzil" Koushik and co. cruised past Slaughter Rage Army in dominating fashion, only dropping a total of nine rounds in the title decider. OpTic India claimed a fifty percent share of the $13,500 prize pool.
