Which teams can upstage the ‘SEA Big 3’ (Zenith, Orange and MUFC)
Time is flying and the first quarter of 2013 is drawing to a close. With all the great DotA 2 matches we have seen, I’m glad that we didn’t all die due to the Mayan calendar running out. Rapture Gaming have put together a really nice article questioning which teams are up and coming in SEA and could potentially challenge the three main achievers. The article asks the opinions of prominent members of the gaming community such as the caster, David ‘LD’ Gorman and John Lim, the international manager of Neolution.

Back to the G1-League qualifiers… shocks are coming!
MiTH-Trust and For.Love bow out of the competition losing to Rising Stars and Chain Stacks respectively, perhaps the pressure of performing with a new roster just days after a shuffle proved too much for For.Love as Chain Stacks showed a really impressive performance. Rising Stars took the series against MiTH-Trust in straight games and it really goes to show, this competition is open and one of the teams who took part in the last event, For.Love are out! Games can be seen on the BeyondTheSummit stream!
