Good afternoon, dear friends! Our heading "Top-5 Weekly" is with you again. Here we review the most interesting events of the last week. Fasten your seatbelts, let’s hit the road!

5. Zotac announces tournament in Brazil.


I would like to notice, that not all of us are following events in distant regions, where Dota is only at the start of its upgrowth, but we cannot pass this event. The biggest event in South America will be organized with the help of Zotac. Despite the fact that the prize pool of the tournament is quite modest - only $ 5000, but we believe that it’s just the beginning of a long and difficult journey.

4. Situation concerning the breakdown of LGD.int is cleared up.

Over the last week a series of reports concerning the breakdown of LGD.int has appeared. At first the interview was given by team manager Ruru, and then by Misery. Opinions specified there are seriously differed, however, the mentioned disputes have little value now – the team doesn’t exist anymore and LGD.int project is frozen.

3. Alliance continues to stay under a storm wave.


Last week we wrote that the world champions are not in the best shape now and they are expected to have some changes. Before LAN-finals of Starladder.tv Loda became the captain. Team took the second place in Kiev, being able to show a part of their former strength. But immediately after the tournament the team manager said that Swedes would not participate in tournaments during the next two months, in order to concentrate on trainings. Let’s wish good luck to Alliance, we hope that they will find their game.

2. DK wins G-League.


DK continues to show a serious game, after winning WPC-ACE Chinese team adds also G-league to its savings box. 2:0 in semifinal and 3:0 in final – DK’s opponents had no chances. Now the team quietly goes to celebrate Chinese New Year, and we can believe, that the grand reshuffle expected at the eastern Dota-stage will not influence DK.

1. Natus Vincere is a six-time champion of Starladder!

The eighth season of Starladder ended last week. Besides Natus Vincere, such teams took part in the final: Alliance, Fnatic and Sigma.Int. The whole tournament Na `Vi spent in their inherent manner: they played disgustingly on the first day, and, as a result, they lost 0:2 in a match against Sigma, on the second day they received a confident win (2:0) over Fnatic, and then destroyed Sigma and Alliance with the scores 2:0 and 3:1 respectively. Thus, Na `Vi became the champions of Starladder in the sixth time and earned $ 61,000.
