MDL Changsha Major Results
The seventh major of this season has ended, and we are getting closer and closer to the most significant event of the season – The International, with only two Majors remaining before the grand finale. Recently the developers announced that together with the Battle Pass sales, the prize pool had surpassed a whopping $10,000,000. That’s a sum worth fighting for!
To get a share of the prize money, you have to pass the qualifiers. Even if you end up in last place, you will receive 0.25% of the total prize pool, which is currently $25,000.
The tournament was held from May 14 to May 20 at Changsha, China. Professional Dota 2 players fought for their share of the $1,000,000 prize pool and 1,500 DPC points, which at this stage are crucial for most teams. Let’s look at the results of this competition:
1. PSG.LGD – $400,000 – 750 DPC points
2. VGJ.Storm – $200,000 – 450 DPC points
3. Vici Gaming – $130,000 – 225 DPC points
4. Newbee – $85,000 – 75 DPC points
Teams placed from 5th to 12th didn’t receive any precious Dota 2 pro circuit points, but they earned substantial sums of money. Here’s the full list:
5-6. Mineski, Team Secret – $40,000
7-8. OG, TNC Pro Team – $25,000
9-10. Invictus Gaming, iG Vitality – $17,500
11-12. Infamous, Vega Squadron – $10,000
PSG.LGD performed impressively, smashing all the teams they encountered along the way to victory. The Chinese team whitewashed their opponents effortlessly except for the match with TNC Pro Team, which resulted in a 2:1 score.
If LGD continue to play in such a manner, they have a strong chance of winning The International without breaking a sweat. Their current success has already influenced the popularity and fan base of the team in the gaming community.
VGJ.Storm has also shown an impressive playing style. After Resolut1on joined the crew, they won a minor and finished second at MDL Changsha Major, improving their overall pro circuit rank. Currently the team is placed eight. However, the team won’t receive an invitation due to changes in active roster. Let’s have a look at where are the other teams stand in the global ranking:
