5. DeMoN joins Team Liquid.

Team Liquid has experienced a kind of crisis lately:
Brian 'FLUFFNSTUFF' Lee has left the team not so long ago. However, the team has managed to find a substitution quite quickly.
Jimmy 'DeMoN' Ho has become the fifth player of Liquid. Jimmy, who played professionally for a long time, was looking for the team, playing the role of stand-in in different teams. So now, DeMoN has found a new home. Let’s wish good luck to Jimmy in Team Liquid!


4. Asian qualifications for ESL One have been announced.

Organizers of ESL One have announced the Asian qualification. We would like to remind that at its end one of the teams will go to Frankfurt to compete for $150,000 of prize pool. Everyone has a chance, selection will be held in three stages. The first stage is national. Results of this stage will define 16 participants of the next round - "Battle Royale". Two winners of the second stage will compete with six invited teams for a seed to LAN-final of ESL One.

3. Participants of DreamHack Bucharest are already known.

The tournament DreamHack Invitational will take place in Bucharest on April 26 and 27. Four teams will compete for $25,000 of prize pool. At the moment the names of participants are already known:
Natus Vincere, 
Alliance,
Fnatic and
Cloud 9 will please Romanian audience with a spectacular game. We also would like to note that each team receives a percent of ticket sales in Dota TV. The tournament is not far off.


2. Alliance and Cloud 9 go to China!

Western qualifications for WPC-ACE, which will be held from May 30 until June 3, have been finished.
Alliance and
Cloud 9 have become those two teams, which have passed the stage of selection. The tournament will be held in Shanghai. Both teams have already guaranteed themselves $3,600 of prize money per each, but we believe that their main goal is the champion title and a check for $161,000!


1. Record of the longest match in competitive Dota 2 was beaten twice!

Yesterday at Fragbite Masters the record of the longest tournament match in Dota 2 was beaten! It took 2 hours, 5 minutes and 26 seconds to define the winner of the match between
Team Dog and
4FC! Ember Spirit by
 eresloco killed 1035 creeps during the match! Unfortunately, this game was not streamed, that’s why the only opportunity to watch the match is to buy Dota TV ticket. We would like to remind you that as of April 1, 2014 the confrontation between DK and iG at The International 3 was the longest game. That match lasted for 98 minutes and 58 seconds, but Asian teams First Departure and Everlast beat the record on April 9 during The Inaugural. Their match lasted for 100 minutes and 8 seconds! As you can see, quite soon European teams beat the time of this record! We can only guess how long this record will valid, but we hope that the next record-breaker will be quite epic!


We finish our review at this point. Dear friends, we wish you spectacular games! Stay with us!
