EHOME are going to MDL Macau

Posted by Jarrad "Belandrial" Adams at 23 November 2017 10:50

Yesterday we saw what was to be the final line-up for MDL Macau be confirmed, but there was a surprise in the mix.

After BTS surprisingly announced a 9th team to join in at The Summit, MDL have done something along the same lines but for vastly different reasons. EHOME, one of the oldest Dota 2 teams to come out of China were confirmed as the 9th team to contest the upcoming minor. The reason for the direct invite comes on the back of the team being disallowed from partaking in the MDL Macau qualifiers due to a third party – and after they had a long back-and-forth with Valve, it was agreed that a direct invite was deserved. The official statement was released via the Mars Media Facebook page.

While EHOME have not been at the top of their form in the recent tournaments, this Minor gives them a huge chance to prove that they are still a force to be reckoned with – and deserve direct invites to more tournaments. With a home advantage, EHOME have a great chance to return to the top and claim some much needed Dota 2 Pro Circuit Points.

MDL Macau

With 9 teams now confirmed, MDL Macau is just around the corner, coming at us from December 8-10 straight from Macau, China. The penultimate Dota 2 Minor of the year will feature a $300,000 prize pool alongside the 300 Pro Circuit Points which are on the line. The 9 competing teams are as follows:

Russia Virtus Pro
China LGD
China LGD.Forever Young
Europe OG
Ukraine Natus Vincere
Philippines TNC Pro Team 
Peru Infamous
United States VGJ.Storm

While the talent and format of the event has not yet been revealed, more information is sure to become available in the coming week, as teams move through the busy end-of-year minor/major schedule. 



Can EHOME claim a minor victory in Macau?
