WESG Dota 2 EU + CIS: Day One Review
The opening match-day of the LAN-finals of WESG Europe + CIS in the Dota 2 discipline is over. The tournament in Kyiv was attended by 20 teams from all corners of Europe and CIS and commenced a fight for 8 tickets to the WESG Global Grand Finals with ￥500 000 (~ $75 000) in prizemoney on offer.
The first to enter the stand-off were the Group A’s participants: Horde, Fantastic Five, Team Denmark, NecroRaisers and Zeta. By the outcome of starting encounters, the first and second lines were seized by Swedish and Russian teams — Horde and F5, who managed to pick up both of their matches.
Fantastic Five are confidently breaking in
The next to come is Team Denmark with one victory and one loss on their board. On the fourth place you can find NecroRaisers, who were defeated in two matches, but still triumphed over Zeta. The Norwegians from Zeta Pegasi, in turn, were smashed in three games, thus losing all chances of advancing to the Playoffs.
Thus, Horde and Fantastic Five are a step away from moving forward to the next tournament’s stage. A destiny of the third ticket to the Playoffs will be decided by the outcome of a tomorrow's match NR vs Denmark.
