Dota 2

In the whole tournament, Liquid did not lose a single match.

r0tK penalized

Vici Gaming coach Bai “rOtK” Fan is in hot water once again after he accidentally left his stream session live last December 10.

But rOtk was quick to issue a clarification regarding the issue.

In a Weibo post, the coach apologized for his behavior on the stream, but also clarified some matters and explains that he only helped a friend from betting.

WESG Southeast Asia Dota 2 Finals

WESG SEA changed rules in the middle of the tournament.

According to the WESG rules, in case of a tie, the team with a win in the shortest game would get the win, followed by a team with the highest kills. WESG did not follow their own rules.

If the rules were to be followed, Veteran from Myanmar would have been given the fourth spot. Instead, the organizers chose to go with a Bo1 round robin tournament between IQ, MEGA Aorus and Resurgence and have the winner play Veteran in a Bo1 match. This did not sit well with fans.

Seeing the backlash, WESG issued a statement of their own on Facebook.

“After London Major we were quite optimistic about the potential of the current lineup. Unfortunately, our expectations were not met. The long term strategy for us is to build a competitive team around young players and we will follow it while making decisions. I’d like to ask our fans to be supportive in the next couple of weeks”.
