October has been rather long month for us DotaTalk as we managed to pull off 4 tournaments in collaboration with SteelSeries, namely, SteelSeries SEA Cup, SteelSeries Malaysia Cup, SteelSeries Oceania Cup and SteelSeries Euro Cup. It has been a busy month with the DotaTalk staffs and admins ensuring every tournament run accordingly without any problems. Thankfully, everything went in pace without any serious interruptions or conflicts. We DotaTalk would also like to extend our utmost gratitude to the community and fans who are constantly lending your support and love towards us. With that being said, let’s take back a look into October as we head into November.
We started off with SteelSeries Oceania Cup which lasted from 12-13 of October. There were a total of 4 qualified teams and 4 invited teams participating in this tournament. Although Cant Say Wisps was given a 1 game advantage over Hans Reborn for being at the top of the winner’s bracket, Hans Reborn came back hard with a 3-1 victory.
Next up we have SteelSeries Euro Cup where we invited European teams all over Europe to compete. We received an overwhelming response despite being held among the European community. Among the competitors were 4 qualified teams with a total of 12 invited teams. Mousesports was certainly the clear favorites but a surprise took us away when Poseidon claim victorious with a 2-1 grand final score.
Next in line was SteelSeries Malaysia Cup which occurred between 26 and 27th of October. This particular tournament was restricted only to Malaysian teams as an initiative to boost the Malaysian Dota 2 community into professional eSports scene. Malaysian teams were given a chance in this exciting tournament as Mastery took home the glory by defeating Refreshing in a 2-1 victory.
We ended October certainly in a bang with SteelSeries SEA Cup. In this prestigious tournament, we are presented with among the top teams across Asia and also a chance to see a rematch between Titan and Lowyat.net eSports as they met yet once again in this intensified finals after their debut in the AGL 2013 where Lowyat.net eSports won. However, Titan was claimed too dominant for their compatriots as they crush Lowyat.net eSports 3-0.
With these tournaments and events being run smoothly across October, we couldn’t thank our fans and community enough for the support and patience towards DotaTalk. We hope to bring the community with more top quality tournaments and castings as a gesture of appreciation!
