Move over The Kade, there’s a new champion contender

Move over The Kade, there’s a new champion contender

The fan favorite underdog Victorious Secret made big waves in the scene this year by consistently placing top 2 at all major LAN and online events.
Taking home the top two slots in almost all competitive Dota 2 events for 2018 they ended the duopoly held by The Kade/Indomitus + Death Sentence. Thus solidifying their position as a definite contender for the best Dota2 team in the island.
Due to personal reasons both Kevin ‘ZackPuppy’ Kadanarachchi and Kaveesha ‘Devanstine’ Kagasuru have had to step down from the active roster.
To fill up the gaps left by their absence veterans Muksith ‘Tenza’ Ajwath and Heshan ‘SathaN’ Sanjaya entered the team as stand ins.

Captain Isuru ‘Deathwish’ Lokuge had this to say about the situation :

‘ The whole of VS would like to thank Zackpuppy for the time he spent with us. Unfortunately his changes in his life meant that he couldn’t carry on playing with us, but he’s killing it in Dubai. Devanstine has chosen to take a small break and hopes to come back once he has a better understanding of the patch”

When asked about the two new additions Deathwish said this :

“They(tenza and sathan) bring a wealth of experience to the table and we hope to get as much as possible from them. We also want to thank them for helping us out at the last moment.”

Strong performance from Sri Lankan League teams against South Asia

Strong performance from Sri Lankan League teams against South Asia

The South Asia Champions Cup organised by Global Esports, a regional League tournament commenced on the 4th of May.

The following teams from Sri Lanka took part :

  • PnX | Deiyo
  • PnX | Lanka Lions
  • PnX | R [ 3 ] D
  • nA | Phase

Throughout the past few weeks these teams competed against the best in the region. The tournament ran a Round Robin format coupled with Single Elimination Bracket.

Group Stages Results

  • PnX | Deiyo 2-1
  • PnX | Lanka Lions 3-0
  • PnX | R [ 3 ] D 2-1
  • nA | Phase 2 – 1

PnX|Lanka Lions and PnX|Deiyo advanced to the playoff stages. Both nA|Phase and PnX | R [ 3 ] D on the other hand drew the short end of the stick. Their groups was stuck at a three way tie. Usual protocol would have meant that they played a tiebreaker against the teams tied together. However time constraints forced the organizers to consider the fastest win to split the tie. This meant that both teams were left at third place and could not proceed.

Playoffs Results

As PnX|Deiyo and PnX|Lanka Lions placed 1st and 2nd in their groups respectively they advanced onto the playoffs. Here the format was a strict single elimination with a best of three matchup. Unfortunately despite the best of their attempts both teams had to bow out of the tournament in the first knockout round. PnX|Lanka Lions went up against Team GraveKeepers and were defeated with score of 2-0. PnX|Deiyo went up against Team White Shadows which resulted in the same score.
