MYM vs The Alliance 0:1
Posted on March 4th of 2014 by Sebastian Edfeldt
In our very first match of the recently announced ASUS ROG Dreamleague Season 1 tonight we faced a very intimidating opponent, to say the least. After all, they did win The International 3. Yes, of course it is Alliance we’re talking about! Tonight they (unfortunately) showed us why the’re a force to be reckoned with.
ASUS ROG Dreamleague is one of the bigger tournaments on the DotA scene. Featuring 12 of the best teams in the world divided into 3 groups in the group stages (North America, Western Europe and Eastern Europe) competing for over $100.000. It takes place over 9 weeks where the Grand Finals will be played during Dreamhack Summer taking place in Jönköping. Every single one of the 84 games will also be broadcasted live on Swedish television from Dreamhack Studio in Stockholm. During these 84 games every team will face each other once in a best of one game, except the teams that are in a group together. Those teams will play each other twice in best of one games. MYM is in the Western Europe group consisting of the following teams:
We’ve had some great games recently, qualifying for the Dreamleague, being close to going 2:0 against Empire to name a few. Tonight was simply not one of our proudest moments. A demoralizing loss against Alliance after barely crossing the 20 minute line in this best of 1 group stage game. We had a debatable draft, and after only a few smaller mistakes from our side Alliance simply took the lead, kept it and defeated MYM.
MYM has several more games left in the ASUS ROG Dreamleague however, and with these games a chance to retaliate and continue to evolve as a team, rise and show the true colours of the beast that is MYM!
