Motivate.Trust Gaming, Army Geniuses, Reckoning Esports, Galaxy Racer Complete OEDL Fall Invitational TeamsPosted by ESPORTSNEWS April 27, 2021 in
Motivate.Trust Gaming, Army Geniuses, Reckoning Esports, and Galaxy Racer have all secured their spots in the main event of the OEDL Fall Invitational after ending the closed qualifier with the best win-loss records.
The Thailand-based team was the first to cement their slot despite Souliya “JaCkky” Khoomphetsavong’s awkward cliff moment. The Indonesian squad quickly followed suit even with one more day of closed qualifier games left.
The final day of the tournament phase saw the Filipino team from the open qualifiers completing their Cinderella run. The final spot for the main event was a battle between Lilgun and the Galvin “Meracle” Kang Jian Wen-empowered team. Eventually, Galaxy Racer was able to punch their ticket to the main event after a commanding 2-0 victory.
The top four Southeast Asian squads will be joining the top four teams of the Oceanic Esports Dota League Season 3, namely Sadboys V2, Old N’ Bad, Nebula, and Yes Chef, for the inter-regional Dota 2 tournament.
The teams will duke it out in a best-of-two, single round-robin group stage from April 28 to May 9. The top six teams with the best win-loss records will advance to the double-elimination playoffs while the bottom two teams will face elimination.
What’s on the line for the inaugural tournament is the honor that comes with the championship title as well as the lion’s share of the AUD $17,500 prize pool.
The first group stage doubleheader will kick off on April 28. The SEA-versus-OCE action will be streamed live on our official Twitch channel.
