The second season of SL i-League Dota 2 Invitational will be held from May 18-21 in Shanghai, China. As usual, for the tournaments coverage, StarLadder will bring together the Russian- and English-language studios of talents.

The English-language talents’ studio

In the English-language studio, the best of the casters and analysts will do their best to please you, among which are Merlini, Capitalist and Lyrical, while the studio will be headed by Alan "Nahaz" Bester. Jack "KBBQ" Chen will help not only to analyze the matches, but also to translate from the Chinese.
