    Fnatic have locked in their spot as the top Dota 2 team in Southeast Asia yet again, winning their second straight ESL One championship at ESL One Birmingham Online today against BOOM Esports.
    BOOM had a strong run, showing that they are a team to watch moving forward in the region. But they didn’t have enough gas left in the tank to match the veteran team during the grand finals.
    Fnatic’s run was less than perfect, dropping a series to BOOM and Team Adroit in the group stage. But out of every team in the region, Jabz and his roster are by far the most consistent in playoff matches. BOOM were only able to take a single game off of them during the two times they matched up in the bracket.
    All four games of the grand finals were very competitive, but Fnatic just looked like the more put-together team behind steady performances from 23savage, Djardel “DJ” Mampusti, and Moon. Specifically with 23savage, he didn’t have a single negative performance, always contributing around eight kills and 30,000 damage, even in their one loss.
    Moon was the standout player for Fnatic, with two dominant performances on Death Prophet helping lead his team to victory. Here are his statlines for each of the four games in the finals, showcasing just how well he controlled the mid lane even if he wasn’t the top contributor in every match.
    Hero K/D/A Net Worth Hero Damage Result
    Death Prophet 14/0/16 16.9k (fourth) 29.4k (second) Win
    Zeus 4/7/12 19.1k (fourth) 56.7k (first) Loss
    Death Prophet 11/2/15 18.9k (first) 30.9k (second) Win
    Storm Spirit 14/2/6 18.1k (second) 24.3k (first) Win
    This is Fnatic’s second straight ESL One title, having overcome Adroit in the grand finals of ESL One LOs Angeles Online last month to claim first place. There is no question that Jabz and his team are the top contenders in the region now, as they have now attained some consistency in their previously sporadic playstyle. '

    The leniency on the stand-in rules at the Dota 2 ESL One Birmingham Online continues to show itself. FlyToMoon used a top tier stand-in as the catalyst today to secure a playoff spot with a win against Cyber Legacy.
    Alik “V-Tune” Vorobey was unable to compete in the first game of FTM’s final series against CL, so the team brought in Evil Geniuses’ RAMZES666 as their substitute for the must-win series.
    While FTM are by no means a weak team, there is a big difference between V-Tune’s level of play and a tier-one veteran like RAMZES, and it was clear from the first interaction that it was going to make an impact. EG’s position three player only stepped in for the first game of the series, but in doing so he absolutely crushed CL and gave FTM a big edge heading into game two.
    He played Slark, going 12/0/15 for 32,900 damage, which was enough to swing the match. FTM very well could have won the game without a high caliber player like RAMZES stepping in, since they were already playing well throughout the event. But adding him to the roster gave them a leg up early.
    As good as they are, CL didn’t have enough left to fight back in game two. V-Tune stepped back in and FTM quickly dispatched their regional foe, eliminating them from the playoff picture.
    The substitution of RAMZES is not against any rules. But most of the time tournament organizers, especially those like ESL that enforce the rules heavily, would not allow a move like this to happen in one of the final series of the group stage. Especially in this case, where FTM and CL were playing for a spot in the playoffs and RAMZES rolled over the opposing team.
    CL ended up as the second-to-last team eliminated in Group B, with Ninjas in Pyjamas also losing their spot to FTM due to a tiebreaker.
    The playoffs are now set, with a total of eight teams knocked out and the remaining eight filling out the upper and lower bracket of the main event, which begins at 9am CT on June 2.

    The second season of the China Dota 2 Professional League wrapped up after almost two months of competition, and PSG.LGD closed the tournament out with a big win over Invictus Gaming to retain their title.
    After upsetting Vici Gaming early and sweeping Royal Never Give up, iG had some momentum heading into the grand finals out of the lower bracket. But LGD proved to be a dominant offensive force, winning three straight, sub 30-minute games to win it all.
    LGD started the season on a rough note, struggling to make it into or out of the group stage of several tournaments before finding their stride and bouncing back to the top of Chinese Dota. Only RNG had a better record than them throughout the seven weeks of round-robin play and fy’s squad only dropped two games total during the playoffs.
    Of course, the biggest story coming out of the CDPL season will end up being Newbee’s disqualification for match fixing, but that shouldn’t overshadow just how good LGD looked in the closing days.
    No single player stood out for LGD. The team played with only winning in mind, leading to most of the players having very tame statlines despite dominating iG in the final three games. All three core players looked strong and had both net worth and damage totals that showed how well they outplayed their opponents.
    The only player on LGD to have double-digit kills in a game was Somnus during his team’s largest victory in game three. In that match he went 10/0/8 for 25,500 hero damage, utterly dominating the mid lane as LGD closed out a 25-1 win in less than 25 minutes.
    FlyFly was the standout performer on iG, opening up the series with a 15/1/6 game on Clinkz, but outside of that single showing, iG were rather silent as LGD routed them.
    LGD are now back-to-back CDPL champions and currently look like the team to beat in China, performing well at ESL One Birmingham Online and preparing for a deep playoff run in yet another tournament.

    EHOME will be without the services of legendary Dota 2 player Zhang “Faith_bian” Ruida for the foreseeable future. Faith_bian is taking a medical break from the competitive scene in preparation for nail removal surgery.
    Because of this, Faith_bian has been moved to the inactive roster and EHOME is currently searching for players to play stand-in roles for upcoming events. 'This medical procedure has been something in the works for multiple months now, as the intramedullary nail removal surgery he is supposed to have is tied back to a previous injury he sustained at MDL Macau 2019. During one of the media day photo shoots at MDL Macau, Faith_bian suffered an upper arm fracture that kept him sidelined for a little under two months.
    The intramedullary nailing procedure is considered very low-risk, but depending on how well things go and how quickly Faith_bian can recover, EHOME may be playing without one of its core players for a few months.

    OG’s full Dota 2 roster return has not been the dream restart the two-time The International champions were looking for. OG bowed out of the ESL One Birmingham Online tournament today after losing a one-sided series to Ninjas in Pyjamas 2-0.
    OG’s lineup looked completely out of sorts throughout the series. N0tail and co. were outclassed over both games, while NiP’s surging form has been helped greatly by their core players’ performances.
    The first game saw OG picking up a classic Io and Gyro combo, along with a Topson Tiny. It’s a combo that’s won them many a game, but the Aegis bearers weren’t ready for a fantastic Morphling showing from NiP’s Charlie Arat.
    NiP’s carry was undisturbed for most of the game, and quickly became SumaiL’s greatest counter as he Morphed into the Gyrocopter and demolished his opponents.

    When people talk about the term “Whales” in gaming, they are usually referring to players who spend an insane amount of money within one game or company’s ecosystem.
    In the case of Dota 2, one of the biggest spenders is Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz al-Saud, the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, who has already spent more than $6,000 on the International 2020 Battle Pass.
    With that level of spending and his constant play-time in the game, he already has leveled his account, “Purrrrrfect Devil Angel Yukeo,” to Level 14,430 in just four days. This is more than 4,000 levels ahead of the second-ranked player, with a $1,500 lead poured into the total, too.
    And this is nothing new for him either, as over the last three years he has spent a combined $69,494 and counting on the Battle Pass alone, with $42,100 of that coming from 2018. He has not only been the top contributor in each of those years but also set a record, reaching Level 175,000 in 2017.
    He has been active on Steam since 2011 and has played over 10,000 matches in Dota, totaling a 5,772/5,467 win/loss record—a 51 percent win rate. His play-time is private, but at the last time of recording, he had put 9,046 hours into Dota, along with nearly 550 hours in Team Fortress 2.
    There are a lot of things that can be called into question about the Saudi Arabian Prince, but his willingness to spend money on Dota is unquestionable.

    OG are just one series away from being eliminated from playoff contention at ESL One Birmingham Online after suffering their third-straight loss.
    Many of the top European Dota 2 teams in Group B have been humbled by newer rosters, including Cyber Legacy, who improved to 4-2 after closing out a tough series win over OG today.
    CL might have a great record but they have also played more games than any other team in the entire event, going 10-8 overall with two days left to play. Every series that Nikita “Palantimos” Grinkevich and his team have played has gone to three games and they’ve only lost to HellRaisers and VP.Prodigy.
    While CL have been coming out on top of those close series, OG have struggled to stay afloat. N0tail and crew are a full series back of FlyToMoon and can’t afford to drop another game if they want to have a chance to make the playoffs.
    Alliance and Ninjas in Pyjamas are tied for the third and fourth spots in Group B at 3-2 (8-5). To even catch that mark, OG will need to win out in their final two matches, which just so happen to be against those two teams.
    If OG can sweep both Alliance and NiP to close out the group stage, all they will need is one of the pair to lose one more game to secure a trip to the playoffs. It doesn’t seem likely that OG will be able to pull off two 2-0 victories with how they’ve been playing, especially against strong performers like Alliance and NiP. But hope isn’t lost for them yet.
    If they lose even one game to either team, however, their chances of making the playoffs drop significantly and they’ll almost assuredly join Winstrike Team as one of the first two squads eliminated in their group.

    For the first time in what seems like months, Team Secret is not the top team in their group. Nigma won their fourth consecutive series to take down the top team at ESL One Birmingham Online.
    After snapping Secret’s win streak yesterday, Team Unique were unable to continue their success, getting swept by Nigma as KuroKy and his team vaulted Puppey’s in the standings based on win ratio.
    Technically, Secret has played two fewer games than Nigma, but both teams have played four series. The main difference in record comes from Nigma playing two three-game series, while Secret has either swept or been swept in all four matchups.
    As of now, Nigma is sitting at 4-0 (8-2) compared to Secret’s 3-1 (6-2) record heading into the latter half of the group stage. Both teams will play on each of the final three days, with a head-to-head clash set to decide which team will walk away with the top seed set to open the last day on May 31.
    Meanwhile, VP.Prodigy continue to show that they are more than just a developmental roster, securing their own 4-0 (8-2) record in Group B after taking down FlyToMoon. This is the third event in a row where VP.P have gotten off to a fast start and looked untouchable.
    They do tend to struggle against teams with a lot of experience, but they have still managed to beat several teams and sweep OG, overcoming that weakness to remain on top.
    VP.P do still have to face Alliance and Ninjas in Pyjamas to close out the event, although they are likely to be favored in both series.

    The newest Dota Underlords update is now live. It’s working to encourage more three-starring one, two, and three-cost units along with fixing some basic bugs.
    Of those bug fixes, the most important one comes in the form of stability improvements for the game on iOS and Android, which should stop some of the launching issues players have been reporting recently.
    The Shop Tier Odds portion of the update will affect Standard and Duos, encouraging players to use strategy surrounding three-starring one, two, and three-cost units. It might not be enough to force a meta rotation, but it should boost some three-star usage and make games more dynamic in what is viable, especially when paired with the new three-star effects added to five of the game’s heroes.
    Broodmother
    All friendly Spiderlings (both hers and Insect Alliance Spiderlings) are invulnerable while Broodmother is alive.
    Dazzle
    Dazzle gains Shallow Grave. All friendly units within one cell of Dazzle survive an extra five seconds after receiving a killing blow.
    Luna
    Luna gains Eclipse. In Luna’s time of need, Selemene blocks the light in a radius of two cells around Luna and showers enemies with 15 beams of lunar energy, one every 0.3 seconds, doing 200 Magical Damage per beam and stunning for 0.5 seconds, with a maximum of five beams per enemy unit.
    Shadow Demon
    Shadow Demon gains Soul Catcher, which activates during Demonic Purge. At the start of Demonic Purge, the affected unit loses 30 percent of its current health. At the end of the Purge, if the unit surives, it regains half that amount.
    Treant Protector
    Treant Protector gains Living Armor. During Leech Seed, friendly units healed by the Seed gain plus five Armor.
    Here’s the new Shop Tier Odds breakdown following this update. This includes each round’s increases and decreases, with only tier five remaining unchanged.

    The Dota 2 community is breaking records yet again. The International 10’s prize pool has surpassed the $10 million mark in record time.
    Since it launched on May 25, the TI10 Battle Pass has been ahead of TI9’s pace and has slowly been gaining ground on the previous record holder.
    Upon hitting $10 million, TI10 totals just under a $1 million lead. But if it continues to sell at this rate, the lead should surpass that mark by the time it hits $15 million. That would put a conservative estimated end total for TI10 at around $37 million without any major increases or decreases changing the current trajectory.
    The TI10 prize pool also reached the $10 million mark a full day ahead of last year’s, setting a three-day record and shattering yet another marker that’s been broken each of the last five years. In comparison, TI9 took four days, TI8 took 14 days, and TI7 took 16 days to hit that milestone.
    It doesn’t seem like the initial delay of the Battle Pass nor the uncertainty surrounding actual times for TI10 are affecting sales at all. If anything, the current global health crisis has likely helped sales and should continue to impact the prize pool in a positive way as Valve continues to roll out more content over the summer.
    There are already hundreds of new cosmetics and features available for players who want to start grinding levels. And this year’s selection also features two Personas and three Arcanas for some of Dota 2’s most popular heroes, transforming the ever-popular Pudge into a fluffy doll and genderbending the iconic Anti-Mage, while providing new sets for Wraith King, Queen of Pain, and Windranger.
    The real test of strength will be to see if Valve can repeat its mid-summer success with the TI10 Battle Pass because that’s what drastically increased the sales totals last year.

    The new OG guard has regrouped. The two-time The International winning organization will swap out two of the Aegises they had won. Topson will return to active duty while Ceb will take a step back, the Dota 2 team announced today.
    Topson’s comeback means that OG will finally regain the all-star team they assembled in the offseason following JerAx’s retirement and Ceb’s exit from the player roster.
    Topson’s comeback means that OG will finally regain the all-star team they assembled in the offseason following JerAx’s retirement and Ceb’s exit from the player roster.
    This will be the first time since the ESL One Los Angeles Major qualifiers that the entire crew is playing together. SumaiL and MidOne will continue playing with the team despite the geographical differences and high ping. But from what we’ve seen from both players, they’re still perfectly capable of laying the smackdown on their opponents.

    Ninjas in Pyjamas played in the closest and most entertaining series of the Dota 2 ESL One Birmingham Online’s opening day, winning out against Alliance 2-1 in the final series. '
    The outcome of the closing series ended up coming down to a battle between Nikobaby and Charlie “CharlieDota” Arat, as the opposing position one players fought for supremacy in the lanes.
    The pair ended up matched against each other during the opening game’s laning phase as Charlie and SoNNeikO prevailed over Nikobaby and fng in the top lane. NiP pulled away late despite trailing Alliance early largely thanks to Charlie’s Spectre, which only died twice and gave his team a reliable follow up hero in teamfights when paired with Era’s Earthshaker.
    The matchup went Nikobaby’s way in game two. His Anti-Mage cleaned up the top lane and dominated the late game against a near runback draft by NiP. That forced SoNNeikO and his team to completely pivot strategies a bit, putting Charlie on Morphling and relying on a him to pull through late.
    That ended up being a good bet, as he not only ended up dealing the most damage for either team, but he went 15/0/6 for 36,800 and overcoming Limmp’s Queen of Pain as NiP clinched the series in the final 10 minutes.
    This is yet another strong start for NiP, as the newer roster tries to improve on their last few outings and break their fifth-place streak. Meanwhile, Alliance will need to bounce back against Cyber Legacy on May 25 to keep from falling behind the other top teams in the standings.

    The wait for the International Battle Pass is finally over. Valve teased today that the spectacle update of the Dota 2 year will be dropped at some point on May 25.
    This lines up with Valve’s initial statement saying the Battle Pass was going to be slightly pushed back from its usual launch time due to COVID-19 causing delays for the development team.
    Things will be a lot different for this year’s Battle Pass, since TI10 has been delayed until some time next year and the competitive season is at a stand-still. What won’t change, however, is the fact that Valve is adding numerous quests, achievements, and earnable rewards for anyone who purchases the bundle.
    As per usual, there will be new consumable items, equipment sets, voice lines, animations, and models added over time, with Battle Points making a return as well. In 2019 there were 2,000 levels worth of rewards, so expect a similar quantity of content this year too.
    Twenty-five percent of all proceeds will still go towards funding the TI10 prize pool, but it is unclear how long the Battle Pass will be available now that the event it is based around has been moved out of its August timeslot.
    Usually, the Battle Pass lasts for roughly another week after TI ends before being closed, letting fans redeem rewards for a bit longer after shutting down too. It is unlikely that Valve will leave the Battle Pass up for longer than the usual three and a half months, but anything can happen during the current pandemic.
    More information about the specific Battle Pass content and any other developmental changes will likely be released tomorrow in an official statement from Valve. But for now, get your wallet ready and prepare for the TI grind to begin on May 25.

    OG has confirmed that Topson is back in Europe after spending time away from the team during the transition to an online-only competitive Dota 2 scene.
    The team has yet to announce its final two players for ESL One Birmingham Online, with only SumaiL, n0tail, and Saksa listed as ready for action.
    This is likely just the team taking its time to decide which players it wants to utilize for the event, making sure Topson arrived with no complications and then looking at its remaining options. N0tail has the option to pull Ceb back in at position three for another event, or try once more to play around MidOne’s high ping if Topson is ready to jump back into action.
    It is not likely that we will see OG pull up a player from OG Seed either. N0tail has shown he would rather let the developmental roster play together rather than use someone like Madara as a stand-in for too long.
    At this point, it looks like Topson and Ceb will be the final players announced for the ESL One roster, since that would give them the benefit of four players competing from one region again, leaving only SumaiL as the outsider playing from North America. Not only would this improve their overall play based on connection, but Topson’s return should swing a lot of matches in OG’s favor. '
    There is still some time for OG to decide on a lineup—the team won’t be playing until 9am CT on May 25—but all signs are pointing to Topson making his return.

    Southeast Asian teams still have one more day of games to play during the group stage at the Dota 2 ESL One Birmingham Online, but TNC Predator have already been eliminated after going 0-8 through against the competition.
    Since there are only six teams competing for the SEA crown at the event, there is no way for them to comeback, leading to their elimination following a 0-2 loss to Fnatic.
    Even in their longer games, TNC failed to put themselves in a position to win. Through eight games, they only held leads in half of them and never for more than 10 minutes. This has led to multiple blowout losses at the hands of teams like Team Adroit and BOOM Esports, rosters that TNC have been ranked over for most of the season.
    Overall, it looked as if there was no adaptation from TNC’s side to match the meta from the latest patch. The team was drafting odd combinations that might have worked at the start of the year but have now fallen out of style and failed to capitalize on good drafts when they did have them.
    This early elimination is just another show of TNC’s lack of consistency as March and his team continue their fall from grace. To start the season, TNC went on a four-tournament run where they dominated the competition, including a victory at the MDL Chengdu Major where they took down Vici Gaming 3-1 in the grand finals.
    Since that point, the team has struggled to find their footing, placing anywhere from second to eighth in every other event they have competed in. This loss stings the most, however, since it will mark yet another tournament run ended by Fnatic, who have cemented themselves as the top team in the region once more.
    Fnatic outplayed them in their series, shutting down any attempts to get Gabbi or Armel rolling in both games. And it isn’t like Fnatic are having a great showing either; that win over TNC saved them from potential elimination since they are now a series up on fifth place Reality Rift at 6-4.
    TNC still have one game left to play against Reality on May 25, but it doesn’t matter for either team after Fnatic’s win today secured their spot in the playoffs. Now it’s just a matter of seeding during the final day of the group stage.

    Gambit Esports might be looking to the future with a new roster in mind. The organization is bringing in a stand-in Dota 2 player rather than recalling its current captain from another team.
    For the last three tournaments, Gambit’s position five player and captain fng has been playing as a stand-in for Alliance. But instead of rejoining his original team, he has now been officially loaned out to the Swedish organization.
    The difference between playing as a stand-in and being loaned out by an organization is minuscule but means a lot in the context of how Gambit is now handling its roster. In most cases, a stand-in player is a temporary substitution that’s usually only used for a single event, while a player being loaned out is viewed more as a trial player that a team is testing out for a potential spot on the roster long-term.
    Gambit has not played in a tournament since April, having pulled out of WePlay! Pushka League, citing poor performances and a need to improve. Following that decision, fng was allowed to stand-in for Alliance and several other Gambit players helped out other teams throughout that event.
    That didn’t really look like much considering the circumstances, but now it looks like the team might be looking to shake things up.
    After officially loaning out fng to Alliance for the next two months, Gambit also benched Maxim “Shachlo” Abramovskikh to make room for two stand-ins. Shachlo has been playing with Cyber Legacy since the start of May, so it looks like this move was also going to happen regardless of fng’s situation.
    Former Wind and Rain captain Vladimir “yol” Basov will fill in for fng, while Evgeniy “Blizzy” Ree is coming over from Natus Vincere’s inactive roster to play for a CIS rival.
    Alliance has experienced some success after bringing fng in as the hard support to pair with S4 and the pre-existing roster. It wouldn’t be surprising to hear about Alliance looking to acquire fng on a full-time basis if the team’s success continues and Gambit is willing to make the transfer.
    Overall, this entire situation seems like Gambit trying out different players in a period of uncertainty in both its own roster and the competitive Dota scene. Fng could very well be back with Gambit at the end of ESL One Birmingham Online, captaining the same roster that he left back in April.

    Team Secret destroyed the competition at the OGA Dota PIT 2020 Online today, winning without losing a single game while playing against the best Dota 2 teams in the world.
    Their 3-0 finals win over Team Liquid also puts them on pace to match the 100-game records of both 2013 Alliance and 2016 Newbee, who both had historic runs during those seasons.
    Over the last 100 games, Secret have gone 82-18, the best of any team currently playing in the competitive scene. In comparison to those two legendary teams, they are behind just one game, as they sit at 83-17 in the record books.
    To even match that statistic, Secret would need to win seven games in a row, and to surpass them, it would be upped to nine games. Puppey and his team are off to a great start after sweeping Liquid in the grand finals to go undefeated at an online Major.
    Liquid hardly stood a chance as every Secret player was in top form, playing as if they needed to end the series as quickly as possible to make it to some other engagement. Only one game lasted longer than 30 minutes and Secret never trailed outside of the opening minutes in the opening game.
    As per usual, both Nisha and MATUBAMAN both played some incredible Dota, with each leading the game in net worth and damage multiple times, while only dying a combined five times. Having that level of control on a game, while playing with Puppey’s Enchantress and YapzOr’s Rubick almost always ends with Secret walking away on top.
    With this win, Secret have now won the last three online events for the top level Europe/CIS scene, taking first at WePlay! Pushka League S1: Division 1 and Gamers Without Borders 2020. Heading into ESL One Birmingham, they will be head and shoulders above every other team as the favorites to take home the $200,000 prize pool.

    Team Liquid crushed OG in a domineering show of force in the OGA Dota Pit Online today, winning 2-0 to secure themselves a grand final matchup with the still-undefeated Team Secret.
    Liquid used OG’s blitzkrieg style against themselves through the series. INSaNiA and his squad was always ready to rotate whenever OG dived, making the two-time The International champions far overstay their welcome and suffer more casualties than necessary.
    The first game saw Liquid accruing an advantage from start to finish as they handily won the laning stage, causing OG’s net worth to suffer immensely.
    Of course, OG weren’t quite ready to give up just yet, but Liquid were always ready to fight fire with water. When OG descended, Liquid countered with incredibly high burst damage cores in Queen of Pain and Morphling, who swiftly crumbled OG’s paltry defenses.
    Liquid’s cores continued to dominate the net worth charts and craft new items at an alarming rate, and they quickly turned the aggressors. OG mustered a scant retaliation, but after getting wiped out while only managing to scrounge a single support kill, OG conceded in less than half an hour.
    Game two saw the game begin terribly for OG’s MidOne, whose Monkey King was killed repeatedly in the laning stage thanks to an aggressive trilane from Liquid. It prompted OG to repeatedly switch lanes, but MidOne’s Monkey King would never recover, ending the game with zero kills and 12 deaths.
    OG’s eggs were placed in the Ceb basket, who benefited from having a solo lane. The off laner dictated the tempo his crew, orchestrating much of OG’s first incursions into enemy territory. As always, Liquid were prepared, and while they were unable to take down the Timbersaw for most of the game, they answered by killing everybody else a whole lot.
    While the kill score looked bleak for OG, the back-to-back TI champions were keeping the game state at a surprisingly even keel. The threat of a powerful push spearheaded by Leshrac’s Diabolic Edict was always possible, and OG continued to play to win.
    After picking off Liquid’s supports, OG pressed the attack and stormed up Liquid’s high ground. As the fight progressed, Liquid’s Razor, Void Spirit, and position five Rubick systematically tore through OG, repelling and sending all of their opponents to the grave.
    With the tides now firmly in their favor, Liquid surfed the momentum into yet another team wipe, this time in OG’s own base. Without any bodies left to throw in the battle, OG conceded, and exit the tournament in third place.
    OG will earn $17,000 for their tournament run, while Liquid will face Europe’s finest in Secret in the grand finals of the OGA Dota PIT Online later today, scheduled to start 12pm CT.

    The OGA Dota PIT Online pits 10 of the best teams from Europe and the CIS region against one another. The tournament runs for 10 days, from May 13 to May 23, and features a $150,000 prize pool.
    OGA was originally slated to organize the fourth Minor of the 2019-20 Dota Pro Circuit, but extenuating circumstances have forced the cancellation of the event.
    The tournament features the most recent premier online tournament champions in Virtus Pro and Team Secret, who won the ESL One Los Angeles Online and WePlay! Pushka League Division One, respectively.
    There’s a healthy amount of up-and-comers as well, such as the ex-Chicken Fighters squad now representing Ninjas in Pyjamas and the winner of the Pushka League Division 2, Vikin.gg.
    Here are all of the live match results and overall standings for OGA Dota PIT Online.
