With a big victory against Alliance, Evil Geniuses throw the Swedes out of The Defense to join Na'Vi, Kaipi and Liquid in the race for the $25.000 prize pool. The playoffs continue with the Winners Bracket final on June 22nd, 18:00 CEST


The Defense 4 playoffs continued today, with Evil Geniuses facing Alliance in the Losers Bracket of the tournament. Alliance, coming from their defeat against Kaipi, had to take down the Americans to remain in the race for the grand final, but their performance was far from what their fans expected tonight. Evil Geniuses were able to predict every single strategy the Swedes deployed, and were only stopped by AdmiralBulldog's top class Lone Druid.

EG will now have to battle the fellow American squad Team Liquid, with Liquid being relaxed after their easy 2-0 win against ICCup. The winner of the match will have to face the defeated competitor of the match between Na'Vi and Kaipi, which will take place on Monday, 22nd of July, at 18:00 CEST. The battle between EG and Liquid will kick-off three hours later, at 21:00 CEST the same day.

There's really not much to say about Andreas 'drouks' Stavridakis, except that he sleeps two hours a day, plays the guitar and survives solely on Diet Coke. He also writes about DotA sometimes.
