Evil Geniuses remained unbeaten and Black N Yellow earned their first win Sunday at the Dota Pro Circuit Season 2 North America Upper Division.
The Geniuses (2-0) handed 4 Zoomers (2-1) their first loss in a 2-0 decision, while Black N Yellow upped their mark to 1-2 after besting SADBOYS in a 2-0 sweep.
The Evil Geniuses victory vaults them into a three-way tie for first place along with Quincy Crew and Undying.
The competition, which lasts through May 23 over six weeks, features eight teams vying for a total prize pool of $205,000 — six teams from the Upper Division of Season 1 plus a pair promoted from the Lower Division.
The first-place finisher will qualify for the Major Playoffs, with the second-place squad moving on to the Major Group Stage.
All matches are best-of-three in the single round-robin event.
Evil Geniuses, playing on green on both maps, won easily in the opening map in just over 23 minutes before earning their sweep with a victory in nearly 41 minutes.
Black N Yellow had to scrap their way to two map wins over SADBOYS, winning a pair while playing on red both times — taking a combined 85 minutes to earn the match win (46 minutes in the first map, 39 minutes in the clincher).
Week 3 picks up Tuesday with one match: Undying vs. 4 Zoomers.
