Even though some of the regions are not finished yet, CIS and China already “elected” their representative for the upcoming OGA Dota Pit Minor which starts in just a few days from now.
China will have two teams that will play there. One of them is Royal Never Give Up and the other is EHOME. After recently adding Ferrari_430 to their roster, EHOME were able to navigate through the qualifiers. In their final series in the Lower Bracket, they faced Newbee. Despite being really close to qualifying for their frost DPC tournament this season, Sccc and Co. could not deal with EHOME’s aggression.
EHOME is definitely not in their best state right now after several players left the team. In fact, the only remaining player from the lineup that won the Bucharest Minor is Zhang”y”Yiping. Despite that, the addition of Ferrari should definitely give EHOME bigger chances of winning this Minor and getting the spot for the MDL Disneyland Paris Major, which starts just a few days after the Minor.
The CIS team is one of the most successful teams in terms of Minors for this DPC season. They have attended two Minors and got the Grand Finals in both of them. Sadly, they were unable to lift the trophy as they lost to two Chinese teams – EHOME and Vici Gaming. FNG and his team-mates had to go through Natus Vincere and Old But Gold in order to get the spot for the Minor. The games were very interesting to watch especially the one against Illidan and his team.
If the saying “third time’s a charm” is true, Gambit should be able to finally win here and have a chance to prove themselves among the “big” names in the MDL Major.
