We are pleased to introduce you the first team to receive an invitation to the EPICENTER: Moscow Dota 2 tournament. It’s OG, triple champions of the Major series and global ranking leaders.
Justly deemed to be favorites in any tournament, their diverse strategies and confident playstyle attract millions of fans around the world. Despite their status, OG are yet to win a large tournament in 2017. In last year’s EPICENTER: Moscow, they only placed third. The team has since gone through major changes: only two players remain from that lineup now. Perhaps EPICENTER will be their first large victory this year. We wish them good luck in the tournament!
The rest of the invited teams will be announced very soon; watch our website and social network pages for updates!
