MSIevoGT captures MSI Revolution tournament title
The powerhouse team that is spearheaded by two of the most experienced players from the Philippines, Kimuelle “Kimo” Borromeo and Mark “Cast” Pillar, proved once again that they are the dominant force in the Philippine Dota 2 scene by claiming the initial tournament of MSI, Revolution “Time to shift to Dota 2”.
MSIevoGT, however, had to fight through a difficult draw as they went head-to-head with two of the most promising teams in the Philippine Dota 2 scene, Phantom and NoypiWillgates. After defeating both teams, MSIevoGT had to then face Philippine Dota heavyweights, Dreamz, in order to advance to the best-of-one finals against traditional powerhouse, Mineski.
In the finals, Cast and his crew relied on their signature carries, Queen of Pain, Phantom Lancer, and Templar Assassin. As expected, the damage per second (DPS) from those three heroes was too much for Mineski to handle.
As the winners of the tournament, MSIevoGT received Php5,000 and Mineski took home Php 3,000 for the runner up spot in the MSI Revolution tournament.
The LAN tournament was staged in Manila making it possible for other top teams such as Mineski, Dreamz, Fulltilt TnC to participate. Rapture Gaming Network was present at the venue to witness a significant number of teams making the shift to Dota 2.
Let us hope that this tournament organized by MSI is the beginning of bigger tournaments in future, which will benefit everyone involved in the Dota2 scene.
Congratulations to MSIevoGT for winning the MSI Revolution “Time to shift to Dota 2” Tournament.
