The Dota Pro Circuit may have started on January 18, but the top tier teams didn't start until the 19th. And while there were no real surprises in terms of who won, we were pleasantly surprised by how competitive some of these teams are looking.
What am I talking about? Let's take a quick look:
In Western Europe (how do we feel about the change to the region names that Valve introduced yesterday?) This should have been an easy 2:0 for Team Secret
. They dominated the region through most of 2020. And while mudgolems
looked strong when the initial roster debuted in late 2020, they trailed off, and have changed their roster up.
Surely with a refreshed and renewed Secret, mudgolems didn't stand a chance?
Ha! Mudgolems put up an impressive fight with a massive Wraith King in game 2. It was quite impressive. And while Secret came back in game 3 to win the series, we think mudgolems deserves kudos.
Well, 4 Zoomers showed up in game two with a Riki that ran circles around Evil Geniuses, finishing with an impressive 56.4K net worth.
And again, while EG came back to win the series in game three, full kudos to 4 Zoomers. They're a strong team, but seeing them take the second game off of Evil Geniuses
What's next, you ask? Well, days and days of Dota Pro Circuit action are ahead of us. You can check in on the different regional leagues, both Upper and Lower Divisions, here on TrackDota!
