So far, there’s a 155,000 dollar prize pool spread out across these tournaments.
We’ll have to see if this is yet another game that sonicfox will dominate in, or if we might get some new competition!
Turning our attention to dota 2, the esl one mumbai began yesterday, and saw the conclusion of the group stages.
Of the eight teams competing, seven got invited from their respective regional qualifiers, and the last from a local indian qualifier. Due to a handful of teams dropping out a week before the event, the group stage was modified to accommodate the eight teams still competing for their share of $300,000.
Split into two groups, we’re seeing a double elimination format, in which the top two teams of each group advance to the upper bracket, and the bottom two drop into the lowers. From there, it’s double elim format, in which if you drop a game in the uppers, you drop to lowers, whereas if you lose in lowers, you’re eliminated.
With the conclusion of groups, we’re seeing team team and na’vi advance to uppers out of group a, with predator and complexity gaming dropping into the lower bracket. From group b, we’ve got keen gaming and mineski seeding up top, and the pango and signify dropping into lowers. The first round of the upper bracket will take place today, with team team challenging mineski, and na’vi against keen gaming. From there, the tournament will continue over the weekend until the grand finals on the 21st at 6:30 am eastern.
But hey here's some interesting news on what happened yesterday, the smash update for joker was released on time. Sounds like a nice time until you noticed
That servers went down on time of release, only about 10% of the smash fan base were able to get their hands on joker while the others were stuck on a error code and it wasn't a good time for anyone, though the problem has been resolved now, fans have made their voices heard over nintendo’s poor decision and online management especially when people are paying for their online services, nintendo has yet to release a sort of statement to wash down the problem, but with joker finally being available I think people will forget about this for a lil while until the new character is revealed and released.
Alright moving on to a little more funnier news in a sorta disgusting way, in the entertainment media shows have adapted ways to have players interact with a shows story, like a decision based game where the story is told depending on your decisions and one person managed to follow that trend
That's right, bear grylls the world's most renowned survivalist has become part of that genre in story telling, in netflix you can watch this program staring him and you can make him do pretty ridiculous things, like eat bear poop, we’re not gonna show you this clip because we don’t want to spoil it for anyone but you can go on netflix and check it out yourself. But aside from that it brings up the question on how that would sorta transition into video games, imagine having actual humans as playable characters I feel like this is one step closer to achieving that goal yet we are probably still years away from having that come true but that's a step closer and you know me optimistic.
Moving on to the overwatch league, today week 3 starts of a bang but we want to look at friday’s games before the weekend rolls in.
As we said the matches that will take place today will be the predictions going into the rest of the seasons, but what about today? Well it should be another step forward to see how these teams have been playing, it also should be noted that as of this week, most top teams will either receive their first loss or continue their stage 2 victory streak but that's not saying to count out the bottom place teams like the los angeles valiants and the washington justice, it’ll only be a matter of time before one of these teams blow up with momentum but the question that stands now, is if they will be able to have enough in the fuel tank to make to play offs.
Friday’s schedule is ready and lined up for action with new york and atlanta started off the day, then the philadelphia fusion look to put the houston outlaws and their drive to win to bed, the la valiants look to regrow their wings against washington and finals the guangzhou charge will close of the day with another fellow chinese team hangzhou sparks. Day 2 will begin friday at 7 pm, these are stacked matches so you won’t wanna miss em.
