We’re just past halfway into the road to the largest and most prestigious tournament in all of professional Dota 2 – it’s only a few months left before this year’s International, and it’s been a rollercoaster of a journey so far for the team. With the Dota 2 Asian Championships just around the corner, let’s take a look at the road we’ve walked so far.

 

We’re just past halfway into the road to the largest and most prestigious tournament in all of professional Dota 2 – it’s only a few months left before this year’s International, and it’s been a rollercoaster of a journey so far for the team. With the Dota 2 Asian Championships just around the corner, let’s take a look at the road we’ve walked so far.

First off the bat is our second place finish at the MDL Macau Minor starting off the DPC strong at our first LAN appearance on the circuit. MDL took place in December of last year, and where we took home $65,000 and 90 DPC points after a tense best-of-three grand finals versus OG.

Despite slugging it out in the highly-competitive SEA regional qualifiers, our next DPC LAN event would be ESL One Genting, which took place in late January of this year. Unfortunately, despite besting our regional rivals in Mineski, we were only able to take home 9th-12th place, losing out to Chinese team, Newbee, 2:0 in the Group B semifinals.

Our third and latest appearance on the DPC was at The Bucharest Major, taking place earlier this March, which would also be the first DPC LAN appearance of our current roster. There, we were able to get into the playoffs from the Swiss group stage, but fell to the eventual runner-ups of VGJ.Thunder in the playoffs quarterfinals, placing us in 5th-8th place, a better performance than last time, but not quite enough to secure DPC points.

As mentioned earlier, the next stop for us is DAC 2018, and hopefully also the following DPC LAN tournaments after that – the GESC Thailand Minor, MDL Changsha Major, ESL One Birmingham, and the China Dota 2 Supermajor.

As always, our greatest goal is to lift the Aegis of Champions and become the best of the best in the competition – we’ll continue doing our best, and once again, thanks for all your support!
