The MRO Overwatch: Open - Underdogs vs Euphoria Gaming Match Recap

In another day filled with lopsided victories, the match we look at today is not one that was very entertaining score-wise, but did provide a lot of great moments and provided a  showcase of why Underdogs managed to get a solid 3-1 match score throughout the evening. 

While getting shredded in their first series by Paradigm6 (which you can’t blame them for, as they are as of yet undefeated in the tournament!) they quickly bounced back and proceeded to win their next three series in a very similar way. Underdogs have a fairly solid all around lineup, with Vortex being one of the most consistent DPS players we’ve seen during the night and the deep champion pools of Bullz and Smokeyy. Their, albeit arguably, most prolific player is the Reinhardt player Savagebeast. Known for an incredibly aggressive, hit-or-miss play-style when he plays Reinhardt (or any other champion, for that matter), he counts on the rest of his team to follow through on his head-on charges. Which, generally, they do very well. 

This play-style of Underdogs immediately shows in their first game on King’s Row, where they death-ball up and charge straight into Euphoria Gaming through the hotel, easily capping the first point. In the streets leading up to the second point, Savagebeast pins Necron with a charge and proceeds to Earthshatter the entire team of Euphoria. A short pause due to a disconnect notwithstanding, the rest of the game was fairly straightforward as Underdogs outclassed Euphoria Gaming on all levels, only dropping the first point. 

The second game on Dorado saw the payload getting pushed a bit further with a really nice overtime play by Killylelee and Kalzerk, whose Nano-visor proved to be too hard to deal with. Ending up just past the second point, things were looking up for Euphoria. Unfortunately, in a fairly straightforward second half of the map, Underdogs pushed through and claimed a 2-0 victory.

Dota 2 Hamburg Places Brand New Mercedez-Benz at Stake

Dota 2; one of the largest esports in the whole world, having had the biggest prize pools, venues and popularity ever seen in the history of competitive gaming. We just saw The Invitational 7 with its $20,000,000 prize pool, again breaking a record. To spice things up, however, the upcoming ESL One Hamburg Dota 2 Major will be offering a car for the voted MVP. Read on to find out more.  Sponsored by none other than Mercedez-Benz, the formidable German car manufacturer, the ESL One Hamburg will be the first event ever to place an autombile in the prize pool. The winner of the MVP vote will be greeted with a fantastic car, worth roughly $59,000. This is one of the most, if not the most, significant non-cash prizes to be awarded ever.  So, apart from the $1,000,000 prize pool, which is already quite an impressive amount; players will be trying their very best to not only win as a team, but to potentially benefit individually through a pricey set of wheels. Other sponsors for the event include Pringles, maybe the car comes with a can of cheesy goodness as a bonus?  Details on the event include the location of, you'll never guess, Hamburg. Barclaycard Arena will be filled to the brim as fans from around the world will watch the top 8 teams go head to head over three days of jam-packed action. Together with the mentioned prizes, there are also 1500 pro points involved.  Anyway, the prize present at the ESL One Hamburg will take place between October 26th and 29th. Votes cast by fans will go alongside those of the talent themselves, with 60 percent of control awarded to the latter. Regardless of the prize at stake, it should be a great event as usual, also a strong start to another season of tight competition and tournaments.
