Dota 2 Reviewed by Forbes Magazine + Redbull ECL Results

By   /   3 years ago

One  of the most prestigious magazines in the world, who is famous for the list of billionaires and known as “The Capitalist Tool”, Forbes has released a review for the Free to Play Dota 2 entitled “A Multiplayer Masterpiece“!

The business oriented magazine has put up quite the article about the game, from its basics, to including The Play from last year’s The International 2 and even going as far as claiming the following:

Dota 2 is incredibly enjoyable and possibly one of the best multiplayer games ever made.”

You can read the full article here. Very surprisingly, the article is in the top 3 most read for the whole site for the 15th of July, this fact just in itself is already a great feat!

On another note, LGD has won the Redbull Esports Champions League even after Chuan from iG stole their Redbull (as shown in the video below)! They’ve taken the first place against Team Orange on the Grand Finals with a 3-0 victory in a best of 5 series so congratulations to them!

Dota 2 Winners

With their first place, they take home 100.000 RMB (~16.000$), the Malaysians Orange who finished 2nd get 20.000 RMB (~3.200$) and a very big surprise, Rising Stars come up at 3rd place after eliminating the favorites Invictus Gaming, so they take home 10.000 RMB (~1.600$).

This tournament was played in a LAN in Beijing, China and it also featured a 1 versus 1 Solo Mid tournament, which allowed the fans to vote for the participants. Fy, a Vici Gaming player has won first place and he got 1.600$ for himself.

It also featured a very innovative form of booth layouts, allowing the Dota players to be able to communicate with the other team, which has made up for some big smack talking (mostly done by the god of flaming, rOtk from Team DK), as well as some very funny moments that were captured in this video.

As usual, the great people at the Beyond The Summit Studio have casted all of the games in English and you can watch all the action in this playlist!

To go with their casts, they have released their own amazing courier EL GATO, that will evolve with the amount of games you’ve watched, he even has his own trailer, in which he fights against the Mighty Roshan!

The elusive Pedro is the man from Portugal, currently living in the big city of London, who reports on all the e-sports shenanigans for us, so that you can keep up with what's going on in the competitive gaming world. Not one to shy away from the competitive scene, Pedro likes a few e-sports games himself, most notably Valve's Dota 2.
