WOW! I cant believe how long has it been since my last post. Ehhh.. ya I hate to admit that I almost gave up blogging but hey here I am, bored again.. feeling like posting again.
For now on, I will share more E-sport news about Dota and replays. I said share the news because I’m not the one writing the article. just copy paste thing, but I always leave the source. so here goes.
FNATIC: King of Kings Championship
Fnatic.com thinks that a new year should come along with a new tournament series, and presents us with the King of Kings tournament. myMYM.com presents to you the groups they have released.
Fnatic.com announced the King of Kings Championship a few weeks ago, with the total prize money pooling up to $1000 for each game. The tournament is now ready to kick off with games like Warcraft 3, Counter-Strike and of course, DotA.
The Allstar tournament will feature 20 prestigious teams from four corners of the world, including the forgotten Oceania, to battle it out and be crowned King of the Kings.
The playing system for the tournament is pretty confusing. The group stages and schedules have been announced and will be taking place from the 7th of February to the 22nd of February while we will see 5 groups, each with 4 teams. The top two of each group will advance. These ten teams will be placed in playoffs, which will start on the 28th of February,t a short six days after the group stages have come to an end. A so-called ‘group stage of 3 teams’ will be held on the 7th and 8th of March.
Besides the DotA tournament, KOKC will also be featuring a DotA video contest, where the best DotA video maker will have a chance to showcase their videos to the world to win some pocket money.
Due to high request, we have decided to up the participating team list to 20 teams! Unfortunately, KingSurf will not be participating due to personal conflict, but we are happy to announce the addition of 5 new teams to the tournament.
The format will now be 5 groups with 4 teams each, the top 2 teams of each group will advance into the playoffs. Good luck!
