There's another big tournament in EU/CIS. Epicenter

It’s been less than a month since the end of the Dota 2 ESL One Germany 2020. Fortunately for the Europe and CIS regions, they have another Tier 1 tournament. This one is organized by Epic Esports Events and offers a prize pool of $500,000.

The tournament started on November 12 and is expected to last until December 13, which is a full month of exciting competition. A total of ten teams are taking part, with eight getting direct invites and two making it through the Closed Qualifier. This is, however, for Division 1, with the division having 10 teams fighting it out for a prize pool of $50,000.

Division 1

After the first set of matches, it’s Natus Vincere that has taken the lead by beating out Team Liquid, Just Error, and Alliance. They’re followed by Vikin,gg, who also defeated Liquid and even managed to sweep Team Secret 2–0.

Surprisingly, the bottom two teams so far are Liquid and Alliance. The two have yet to win any games. It’s surprising to see that three of the region’s top teams are in the bottom four. These are Secret, OG, and Team Nigma.

The upcoming matches are:

  • November 19
    • Virtus.pro vs Just Error
    • Vikin.gg vs mudgolems
    • Team Nigman vs Alliance
  • November 20
    • OG vs Vikin.gg
    • Team Nigma vs Just Error
    • Team Secret vs Team Liquid
  • November 21
    • Virtus.pro vs mudgolems
    • Alliance vs Vikin.gg
    • Team Secret vs Just Error

Division 2

There’s no question that the Europe and CIS regions have some of Dota 2’s best teams. Thus, even Division 2 has some exciting matches. So far it’s Yellow Submarine that’s taking the lead. The team has yet to experience any loss. To be fair, there are other teams that have yet to play their matches. It will be exciting to see how things go in Division 2, since Gambit Esports and 5men are two of the teams that have yet to play.

Unlike Division 1, the matches here are scheduled almost daily. Hopefully that’s enough to satisfy the thirst while waiting for matches in Division 1.

So what do think? Who are you rooting for in Division 2? What about Division 1? Do you think this is the time for the “new” teams to finally get their chance? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
