The first female player has been competing in the regional qualifiers for an official DotA 2 event and two teams from the NA LCS have been absolutely dominating the past few weeks. Let’s take a closer look in our eSports Boulevard News Week 11.
We kick of eSports Boulevard News Week 11 with a really exciting event in the DotA 2 competitive scene. After reaching the regional qualifiers of the Kiev Major, Marielle ‘Layla’ Louise, a support player, has become the first female professional gamer to compete at this level. Layla and her team Wheel Wreck While Whistling will be looking to make it another first by qualifying for the main event as she did for the regional qualifiers.

Wheels were up against Vegetables eSports to decide which team will go forward to playing the regional qualifiers for North America, and were no more than a dark horse for the world of eSports. Although the official stats and results show that Wheels came through as the better side, they actually achieved their place in the next round after Vegetables conceded a game they would otherwise have won, allowing their opponents the chance to compete in the next stage.
This quite possibly is the decisive breakthrough for women of the eSports industry to break the stereotypes and make a name for themselves in the industry. Also, last week was International Women’s Day so this first couldn’t have come at a better time, and we wish Wheel and all the players within the best of luck in the next stages of qualification.
Last week in the 2017 North American League of Legends Championship Series (LCS) Spring, the best teams, Cloud9 and Team SoloMid, showed they are the teams to beat in the group, ranking in the top two positions and leading by some margin.
If we look at the games played, some of the teams that these two sides faced did show glimpses of some comeback potential but to be fair, it was more due to silly plays by the two teams than anything else. After a feast of the eyes match between Korea’s SK Telecom T1 and KT Rolster, the North American LCS will be looking to improve the competition rather than being a two team horse race.
The week was a bit messed up with the same North American top two increasing the points margin from the 3rd placed teams, some squad problems in the roster of other teams, and a heap of inconsistency at the bottom. In other words, just another season in the LCS.
