Take 5 replaces Team Liquid in Prime Dota 2 Cup
Postponed due to DotaTV ticket issues with Valve, the Electronic Sports Prime Dota 2 Cup has released a new bracket and new schedule for their tournament. The first match of the ESP will start on the 15th of October and the tournament will end on the 17th of October. The winner of ESP will be walking away with $1,500 while the runner-up will bring home $500.
One thing to notice is the addition of EMS One American qualifier winner Take Five to the list of teams, replacing Team Liquid in the process. According to George Li, organizer of ESP, Team Liquid players have school commitments and there are no way to go around it despite attempts to change the schedule.
