Starladder Ukraine Minor kicks off today in KievPosted on: Jun 12, 2019 By smartlaunch in News and trends,
The last Minor of the 2018-2019 DPC season kicks off today in Kiev for the Starladder Ukraine Minor. Also called the StarLadder ImbaTV Dota 2 Minor Season 2, the Starladder Ukraine Minor kicks off on June 12-16 in Kiev, Ukraine. The EPICENTER Major will follow later in the month.
The Ukraine Minor has a USD 300,000 prize pool and 500 Pro Circuit points on the line for the eight teams that qualified to attend it. The eight teams will be competing in Kiev for one of two available slots for the EPICENTER Major and the last shot at collecting enough DPC points to earn a direct invite to TI9.
While a ticket to EPICENTER could make any TI9 dreams come true, Alliance, EHOME and Mineski are right on the cusp and need the Major DPC points to clinch an invite. Without that, they can easily fall out of contention and be relegated to the closed qualifiers. compLexity Gaming would need to qualify and then take a 5-6th place finish while hoping other teams didn’t pass them up. Team Anvorgesa, Team Sirius and Winstrike all would need to qualify and then take a top 3 spot to consider heading to TI9 directly.
NiP is the only team that is playing without the same type of pressure, having already secured enough points to be working on their visas for China already.
The eight teams have been divided into two groups of 4 teams each:
Group A: Anvorgesa, EHOME, Alliance and Winstrike.
Group B: Team Sirius, Ninjas in Pyjamas, compLexity Gaming and Mineski.
The broadcast will be held both on Twitch and Facebook, also you can easily choose a convenient channel on live.starladder.com.
The tickets for StarLadder ImbaTV Dota 2 Minor are still on sale, available for purchasing at tickets.starladder.tv. On June 12 and 13 the entrance will be free for all.
