Dota 2 Gosu “GosuGamers” Gamers

DK ranked first in Group A of Alienware Cup and will receive an auto-seed to the third round of the winner bracket in the playoffs. Group B featuring iG, Zenith, NeoES.Orange, TongFu and their European challenger Na`Vi will be starting tomorrow.

The Group A of Alienware Cup has just ended with Zhi Lei 'Burning' Xu and DK at the top of the charts. DK will receive an auto-seed to the third round of the winner bracket in the playoffs for their first place finish in the groupstage.

Rattlesnake, currently sitting at rank two had the biggest potential to tie DK for first place but was struck with a city-wide power outage earlier today, hence, the two games forfeit to Invasion-MUFC. LGD.Int also had their most impressive run in months after going on a 4-0 rampage to rank third despite forfeiting two of their opening matches., second placer of the G-1 League, placed last in group A despite having the same score as Invasion-MUFC. This is due to Alienware Cup's tiebreak rule.
