EPIC League Division 2 Title Won By Alliance

There have been several Dota 2 tournaments in 2020, even as the Covid-19 pandemic changed their mode of operation and pushed a lot of them online. One of such divisional events that took place is the EPIC League Division title. This tournament is two-staged, as in the sense that a team drops from Division One and goes ahead to continue the tournament in Division Two.

Securing the Win

Alliance was one of the teams that were relegated from Division One and had to continue its quest for a championship in the second division. They struggled a lot in the upper-division, and not much was expected of them as they made their way to the lower-division. However, they were able to turn it around and secure the win. Their powerhouse roster was not able to do much for them in Division One but was able to dominate in the lower-division. It would have been disappointing to see them perform poorly as they did in the upper-division.

They took to Twitter to announce their success, Div 2 Champions! We take the match, the series, and the division win! A rough group stage but made up for it with a very entertaining LB run in the second division! Thanks for the games and the tournament, see you in 7.28! #LongLiveAlliance #EPICLeague.

It was a fairly easy stretch for Alliance in the early fixtures leading up to the lower bracket finals. They cut through Winstrike, star-studded Just Error, and Spider Pigzs without so many problems but were given a hard time by Gambit Esports. That was the game before the finals, and Gambit sport wanted a place in it as much as Alliance. However, Nikolay “Nikobaby” Nikolov was able to secure the win over Danial “XSvamp1Re Alibaev and his team in what was a tense closeout game.

The Tournament Finals

The final was against Live to Win, who was pegged as early favorites in Division 2 but were clear underdogs against Alliance. They were able to put up a strong fight against the tier-one roster, and for the first time in their Division 2 run, they experienced some difficulty.

Game four was crucial for Live to Win as they had the opportunity to put the game on ice early into the game. However, another Nikobaby inspired comeback made Alliance drag the early disadvantage long enough to turn things around. It was a decent effort by Live to Win, and they attempted to steal the win in the latter stages of the game, but their effort was not enough, even as Linus “Limmp” Blomdin went 18/2/11 on Mirana and dealt joint damage of 48,100.

After forcing game five, Alliance cruised through to secure the title. They dominated in every way and comfortably closed out the series. The final game lasted for about 22 minutes, with Alliance closing the game with 11 kills to 1.

Even as it is not as coveted as the Division One title, Alliance made the best of their drop-down into Division 2 and won a title, and $20,000.

The prize pool for the events is:

  • Alliance – $20,000 (1st place)
  • Live to Win – $10,000 (2nd place)
  • Gambit Esports – $7,000 (3rd place)
  • Spider Pigzs – $4,000 (4th place)
