Another week came to an end, and it's time to summarize the results! With a big pleasure we are presenting you 5 the most interesting events of the past seven days:

5. First Departure won RGN League.

Yes, not many fans are following Dota-events in Southeast Asia, but there are also interesting tournaments. Thus RGN league came to an end. In the final First Departure overplayed Mineski in a tough struggle with a score 3:2 and got the first prize amounting almost to $8000, while Mineski received only $3000. Orange team closed the top three of winning places.

4. Eternal visa problems.

This week several teams suffered from the activities of migration services. So Pajkatt, player of an international line-up of LGD, was forced to leave China till the end of the year. It was one of the main team’s reasons for refusal to participate in G-League. Also Fnatic refused to fly at the final of this tournament after having experienced problems in obtaining visa, as they were going to visit China for the first time.

Let’s also note that G-League is not the only tournament for which participants didn’t manage to obtain the necessary documents for participation in LAN-stage: DK and Empire refused to participate in EMS One.

3. Crisis of Na`Vi and Alliance.

The second LAN-tournament in a row Na `Vi is sharing 3-4 places, and Alliance is left behind the grand final. Despite this the teams continue to show good Dota, but it's just not victorious anymore. Was a decent weapon found against the best two teams of 2013? We hope that New Year's holidays will help them, and these two European teams will continue their journey to the top.

2. Preview of Ranked Matchmaking.

After a series of "superficial" and "economical" patches Valve decided to please the community with a new announcement! Developers are implementing a new matchmaking ranking system to the game. Let’s also mention a notification posted in blog which explains the principles of public games selection. Valve continues to work on the game, and we can only wait.


1. Vici Gaming won EMS One.

Chinese teams strike back! Six months ago we watched as Alliance at first and then Na `Vi came to the Celestial and overplayed local teams. Now the situation is completely opposite! Vici Gaming, having lost only two maps, is going home as a triumphant of EMS One, having earned $ 12,000. In final they beat Fnatic which showed decent but still not a champion game.

Now a series of big LAN-tournaments comes to an end, and we wish the teams not to lose their sporting form during the New Year holidays. And once again we congratulate the champions of EMS! Veni, vidi, Vici!
