Team Empire have won the Game Show Global eSports Cup Season 1 following a compelling 3-1 victory over 4 Clovers & Leprechaun.

In Game 1, Pajkatt's Shadow Fiend was allowed to farm and kill to his heart's content, with Empire unable to put up significant resistance as the game dragged on. 4C&L steadily built their lead, until one bad team fight sealed the deal.

Empire came back swinging in Game 2, as several fights in and around the Roshan pit were disastrous for 4C&L. Empire closed out the game in 52 minutes.

Game 3 was a much closer affair, with Empire leading in the early game before 4C&L caught up to Empire. The game would have likely ended in 4C&L's favor, were it not for Empire turning around a poor engagement by 4C&L to win the game.

Game 4 ended up being the fastest, as Empire slowly snowballed and ended 4C&L's dreams before the 30 minute mark.

Empire previously lost to 4C&L in the Winner's Bracket of the tournament before defeating Vega Squadron in the Loser's Bracket and enacting revenge on their European rivals.

This is Empire's first tournament win since Season 5 of the Dota 2 Champions League in May.
