Let’s kick off our weekly news article with some recent DotA 2 News.
The year was a fantastic one for the world of Dota 2 regarding eSports influence and records. After one of the players made it into the Guinness World of Records book and another player landed on the list of most influential teens, another record is set by a team of the Dota 2 world, and it’s none other than the TI6 Champions, Wings Gaming. The team made it into Guinness World record book for the largest single first prize in an eSports tournament after officially securing $9,139,002 for winning The International 6.
And now let’s get down to the competitive world of the game where all the drama is about the Boston Major. Recently Valve has released the list of directly invited teams and also revealed the teams invited to play the qualifiers of the upcoming Boston Fall Major.
Only eight teams have received direct invites. The invites include the reigning TI6 champions and the latest Guinness World Record holders, Wings Gaming. Digital Chaos, the runner-ups of the TI6 have received the direct invite and will be looking for redemption. Evil Geniuses, Newbee, EHOME, Execration, MVP Phoenix, and the two-time major champions OG are all the teams invited to Boston. As the list of teams competing in the qualifiers have been revealed, the qualifiers are underway.
Team Secret and Team Faceless have gotten the better starts to day 1 of the qualifiers. While moving onto to the 2nd day, Team Secret has just faced their first loss to Team VP Polar. That means the only unbeaten team in the qualifiers is Team Faceless. So, the twists and turns have already started in the initial stages as EternaLEnVy of Team NP gifted the 100 HP Roshan to Team ProDota. We can only wait and watch what will happen in the qualifiers of the Fall Major.
October 29th, Staples Center. These are the words you will hear from every corner of the world of League of Legends. This is the date and the place for the upcoming Worlds 2016 Final between SK Telecom T1 vs. Samsung Galaxy.
Will Samsung continue their 10 game winning streak and stop Telecom and collect their 2nd World Championship? Or will Telecom T1 take home their 3rd World Title? We can only wait. So be sure to join casters Phreak, Azael, and Zirene at the Staples Center this October.
The end of Worlds 2016 also paves the way for the competitive season of League of Legends. The completion of the season will take place with a bang. From December 1-4 2016, the IWC All-Star Event will take place in the Catalan region of Europe, in Barcelona.
So what company is helping Riot to cover the Grand Final of Worlds and All-Star event? The answer will be Acer. The company is playing a massive role for the developers of League of Legends by providing the Acer Predator XB1, a brilliant monitor with 24-inch Full HD 1080p display featuring NVIDIA G-Sync. It will play a decisive role and will serve as a medium for players as they fight for ultimate glory.
The competitive scene of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is on fire. Tournaments awarding high prize pools is on the horizon and a team is leaving the ESL because of technical difficulties. Currently slated for this coming February, DreamHack has officially revealed the second-ever Master Series tournament will be their newly-announced DreamHack Masters: Las Vegas. Garden Arena and MGM Arena will be hosting the event, with 16 teams competing for an astonishing $450,000 prize pool. The champion will be taking the significant share of $200,000.
ESL has recently announced that for the League Finals in São Paulo, Brazil, a particular team will not take part. That team is Team Fnatic, and no other team will take their spot. In an official statement, ESL reported that they have contacted all of the European non-relegation Pro League teams, and due to travel difficulties and scheduling, the franchise was unable to find a replacement for Team Fnatic.
Meanwhile, ESEA has released information about the Season 23 Mountain Dew League LAN Finals. The event will take place in Burbank, California, in the United States.
