OG: Leading Victor Hunting for More
OG, yet again, are on the very top of the Dota world. The road to the Grand Finals will be savage while Invictus Gaming is not the worst possible beginning competition. When they really overcome the one Chinese team in the event, they will then need to confront a tournament-starving Virtus.Pro. The victor’s final will be between the victor of Digital Chaos and Evil Geniuses when they manage to get the better of the CIS powerhouse. Itis a difficult path to the title, but then OG are far and away the best team on earth when they win it all.
Evil Geniuses: Time to Deliver
Much Evil Geniuses is just another squad that’s starving to get an undisputable triumph from the scene’s finest. The one thing that is missing is a prize from a tournament with major ability in attendance. EG flourishes in the Double Removal. Yet we will see when they are able to require DotaPit.

Something to notice from ESL Genting, also: the Grand Final between DC and Newbee was the first greatest-of-five to go the complete five matches since EPICENTRE.
The start of March indicated the high point of the team, procuring the Leading title refused to them by OG in Frankfurt, Clement “Puppey” Ivanov was on the very top of the extensive world of Dota. Two weeks after, nevertheless, that might drastically transform. This roll move would decide the course the western scene would take before the conclusion of The International 6. After some terrible revelations of what occurred within Team Secret behind the scenes, the organization he’d help develop as well as the reputation of both Puppey were destroyed. With Secret having to play the fresh house of distress and Secret expats W33, DC but, the seeding for this particular tournament is not merciful.
