By   /   Oct 28, 2014

The 10th edition of this premier Dota 2 tournament had its LAN finals being played in Kiev, Ukraine from the 23rd to the 26th of October and it featured a prizepool of over $270.000.

The 8 teams playing were some of the best in the world, as it featured only the top teams qualified from America, Europe and South East Asia.

Star Ladder Season X began with a group stage consisting of 2 groups. Top 2 teams of each group advanced to the upper bracket while the bottom 2 go to the lower bracket instead.

Group A ended with Evil Geniuses and Teamerino Tinkerino in the top spots both with 2 wins and 1 loss, while Alliance and Cloud9 finished in the bottom, both with 1 win and 2 losses.

Group B finished with a dominating performance by Team Secret, finishing top with 3 wins and no losses, and after a tiebreaker with the other 3 teams, Na’Vi clenched the top spot while Virtus.Pro and Execration finished in the bottom with 1 win and 2 losses.

Team secret blazed through the upper bracket, securing their spot in the grand finals after beating Tinker and EG, but the latter managed to get a rematch after fighting their way in the lower bracket final.

Grand Finals was a best of 5 match with a 1 game upper bracket advantage to Team Secret, however, EG proved that the latest nerf on Lycan was nothing, as they’ve picked the hero 3 games in a row with a huge success as it lead to victory in all 3 of those games.

Prizepool was distributed as shown below:

  • 1st place – $106.000 Evil Geniuses
  • 2nd place – $47.000 Team Secret
  • 3rd place – $33.000 Cloud9
  • 4th place – $19.000 Alliance
  • 5th and 6th place – $9.500 Na’Vi and Tinker
  • 7th and 8th place – $6.000 Execration and Virtus.Pro

The year of 2014 still has a great amount of upcoming premier Dota 2 action in the form of: the Dota 2 Champions League Season 4, The Dream League Season 2, The National Electronic Sports Tournament, and in December we will have The Summit 2 and the WePlay Dota 2 League Season 3.
