Despite starting the best-of-five series with a 1-0 Loser bracket deficit, the Romanian squad TCN managed to take down the Serbians mYinsanity.Sensei to earn the gold in the first season of the Balkan Championship. Through their success, the team will earn about $500.

The first edition of the Balkan Championship is now over, and the crown will be going to Romania. Team Cede Nullis survived the every round of the Lower Bracket after suffering a 2-0 defeat against the Greeks Imba Battle.net. Their final obstacle was the Serbian squad mYinsanity, the team that dropped only one game in the whole playoff bracket and entered the Grand Final with a game advantage. In the end, TCN emerged victorious with a comfortable 3-0 victory.

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.
