Nigma, mudgolems nab first wins at ESL One Germany

Team Nigma and mudgolems opened Round 2 of the online ESL One Germany tournament with their first wins on Friday.

Nigma (1-1) swept Tempo Esports (0-2) and mudgolems (1-1) swept Cyber Legacy (0-2).

The $400,000 Dota 2 event features 16 teams from Europe and the Commonwealth of Independent States. It runs through Nov. 1, with the winner earning $150,000.

The teams will compete in a Swiss group stage with five rounds of best-of-three matches. Teams never play the same opponent twice. Three victories are needed to secure a spot in the eight-team playoffs.

The playoff rounds will be contested in a best-of-three, double-elimination format. The grand final is a best-of-five encounter.

Nigma opened with a 41-minute win on green and kept Tempo winless with a 33-minute victory on red. Both of the wins for mudgolems came on green, in 35 and 26 minutes.
