Neolution.Orange Against Invasion on Month-End Showmatch

Posted by Ren "Ren" Vitug at 30 January 2013 20:33
Invasion Cyber Zone will host a showmatch tomorrow, pitting a match between 2 of the most recognized teams on Malaysian Dota 2 - Neolution.Orange and Invasion.

Both teams are known as top competitors (together with MUFC) on the local scene. The last time they faced each other, it was a WC3 DotA match on SMM '12. While Invasion successfully eliminated Orange that time, the latter was also competing with an incomplete roster.

Since then, a big change happened on the roster of Orange (see here). Aside from renaming to Neolution.Orange, they also acquired former MUFC players Ohaiyo and Net.

Of course, before joining MUFC, Ohaiyo was part of Invasion. After leaving, the team had adjusted and had been continuously training their Dota 2 team. In fact, Team Captain Cheng Hor “FzFz” Siew played for Inv-N9 last The Asia, where he proved to be a very competitive player.

While the showmatch won't feature any prize purse, it is expected that both teams will go at each other in full force. This is actually the first time in a long while that Orange will be competing with their official 5-man roster. While they might still lack proper practice time, this will still be a good preview of what the team can bring into the table.

The local fans are invited to watch live at Invasion Cyber Zone at Kepong. Of course, a stream will also be provided by Myzzrym (stream link).

The showmatch will be held on 31st January, at 20:00 SGT (13:00 CET).
