Despite not being totally to the scene, Wrath of Olympus hasn’t really taken center stage due to the other strong teams competing for that spot. WoO’s time is now though, as they climbed from the Class B teams into the Grand Champion of the GMPGL DotA – April (5-4).

They were far from perfect, dropping a game on the Group Stages and being sent down into the Loser’s bracket. However, they were able to collect themselves just in time. They showed great composure against Filipino powerhouse and SGNDT ’12 runner-up, iZONE.GIGABYTE, en route to a 2-1 victory despite having the Loser’s bracket disadvantage.

 

Winners:

  • Champion: Wrath of Olympus – PHP 15,000 (363~ USD)
  • Runner-up: iZONE.GIGABYTE – PHP 5,000 (121~ USD)
  • 2nd runner-up: Pacific.Revitalize – PHP 4,000 (97~ USD)
  • 3rd runner-up: Noypi Willgates – PHP 3,000 (72~ USD)

With that, next month’s GEST – DotA tournament will have a new champion as the last year’s titlist failed to qualify. It is still unclear whether it is the rank four of the Class S or the rank two of the Class B advancing for the fourth slot though.
