Celebrity Couples Challenge: New date and second imprint

Posted by Ulrich "KongoTime" Hanten at 17 February 2012 14:19
In order to prevent European viewers from setting their alarm clocks to 5am, the time for the Celebrity Couples Challenge has been moved back to 17:00 CET on Sunday the 19th of February. Until then, we can shed light on the second mousepad imprint and more details about the competition.

Next to Merlini's incarnation of Zeus as solid as a rock, Dendi is guiding his companion Furryfish through an autumn forest in the second drawing by artists Melanie Herring, Alice Zhang and Alissa Pang. Ten mousepads each will be signed by the shown couple and raffled among donors, together with Dota 2 beta keys. The biggest contributor will further recieve a special present including a Dota 2 beta key an hour-long Dota lesson with the couple of their choice, a joinDOTA t-shirt autographed by Tobi Wan, a personalized, autographed mouse-pad featuring the print of their choice, and an on-stream shout-out. Both drawings can also be purchased privately at purplekecleon's deviantART page.

The four couples will square off mid only in a single elimination bracket. First to achieve ten kills or destroy three towers moves on to face the winners of the other match. The played heroes will be drafted via simple text message exchange in a private lobby following the order: Team 1 ban > Team 2 ban> Team 1 pick > Team 2 Pick, times two.
