5. HGT is strengthening line-up: Xtt and ZSMJ are in the team.

Hearts Get Together decided to change the name to Hyper Glory Team in connection with acquisition of a powerful sponsor. Changes in the team’s line-up also did not make us wait for a long time: 

ZSMJ and
 Xtt were invited to the team (they are known for their performances being a part of
 TongFu). HGT become more attractive by the names of players. But will they improve the competitiveness? The question remains open.

 

4. Icy changes the team and will play in LGD.cn

 Icy did not have much time to play in
 HGT, as he was soon bought out by 
 LGD. Currently the bronze prizewinner of The International 2012 lacks stability, and now one more permutation is happening. Is this transfer the last in China or will we have the others? We can only wait to know the answer.

 

3. MLG cancels its LAN-tournament in June...

Major League Gaming, which very successfully organized its first LAN-tournament on Dota 2 at the end of last year, recently has announced a new major championship with a prize pool of $ 150,000. But the shift of The International to mid-July and announcements of other major tournaments left no choice to organizers: MLG Anaheim will be held without Dota 2. Teams will have the necessary time for rest and trainings, but for some period, we lost the tournament, which had all the chances to be an analogue of "Grand Slam" in tennis.

 

2 . And... BTS announces its Summit.

BeyondTheSummit Studio announces its LAN- tournament in June. The main feature of the tournament will be its home atmosphere. Teams are planned to compete for the prize pool of $ 50,000 in an informal setting, drinking beer and entertaining the audience during breaks. The idea is certainly interesting, but there is a nuance: The International is close, and there will be plenty of other major tournaments in June. That’s why not all the teams will have the possibility to participate. For example,

 The Alliance has already refused to participate, and
 Aleksandr 'XBOCT' Dashkevich, according to some rumors, gonna have to be offered 15 different types of alcohol. In any case, we will follow the news concerning this project with the great interest.


1. Free To Play is starting this week!

A documentary about the lives of three professional Dota-players is already available for preloading! It will be possible to watch the film on March 19. Let’s remind that Valve was working on this documentary for more than 3 years, and fans became pretty tired of waiting during this time.

 Clinton 'Fear' Loomis,
sg
 Benedict 'hyhy' Lim and
 Danil 'Dendi' Ishutin are starring.
