SMM reverts back to DotA

General Terrence “MrBlue” Wong
There was much outcry from the DotA community after SMM opted to use Dota 2 for their Grand Final event. But, after much discussion among the administration team as well as many opinions voiced from various parties, SMM have decided to go back to their roots and use DotA instead.

A lot of reasons were given by fans of DotA for why the original should be used instead of its sequel, Dota 2. Some of them include the limited hero pool, accessibility of the game, being an incomplete game and many more. All arguments can be put to rest now that SMM have decided to go back to WC3 DotA.

The Grand Final event will be held in Midvalley Exhibition Center from the 2nd to 4th December.

This means that SMM will end the year with DotA before Dota 2 takes over.
