Ninjas in Pyjamas win OGA Dota PIT Minor

Posted on: Apr 30, 2019 By smartlaunch in News and trends,

Ninjas in Pyjamas fought their way through the OGA Dota PIT Minor, the seventh tournament by One Game Agency hosted in Split, Croatia, to capture the last available spot in the MDL Disneyland Paris Major. The team took the victory with an impressive 3-2 win over the Chinese squad EHOME in the grand finals.

By taking first place, Ninjas in Pyjamas secures a spot in the MDL Disneyland Paris Major. Though the team hasn’t looked dominant at any point this season, it is still well positioned in the Dota Pro Circuit. A top-three showing at the major would guarantee them a spot at The International 2019, and depending on how things shake out, the team could sneak its way in with just a sixth-place finish.

The total prize pool for the OGA Dota PIT Minor is USD 300,000 split between all eight teams. In addition to the handsome financial reward, teams will be awarded DPC points as well.

1st place: Ninjas in Pyjamas USD 125,000 + 120 DPC points + Spot to MDL Disneyland Major
2nd place: EHOME USD 65,000 + 100 DPC points
3rd place: Alliance USD 35,000 + 90 DPC points
4th place: Majestic Esports USD 25,000 + 70 DPC points
5-6th place: BOOM ID/Forward Gaming USD 15,000 + 40 DPC points
7-8th place: Gambit Esports/Royal Never Give Up USD 10,000 + 20 DPC points

EHOME have a real chance of making noise at future events. The window to TI9 is starting to close on the Chinese side, but there is little doubt that they have the makings of a contender. EHOME will have to wait for the qualifiers for the EPICENTER Major, which begin later on in May.
