PGL Open Bucharest 2017 Preview

The second minor of the new Dota 2 season, PGL Open will take place in Bucharest, from October 19th - 22nd. Eight teams from all over the around will be competing at the main stage for a $300,000 USD prize pool and 300 Qualification points.

The Qualifying Teams

A few days ago, the last team was confirmed to join the list of lucky ones who arrive through the closed qualifiers to the PGL Open Bucharest 2017, the second Minor of the Dota 2 Pro Circuit.

The PGL Open will be held in Romania from 19 to 22 October, just after completion of the StarLadder I-League Invitational S3 and a few days before the long-awaited Major of ESL One Hamburg.

During this entire week, there were defining moments that emerged from each closed qualification; these 6 slots would be merged with the 2 teams that PGL invited. In this case, the two teams that received the direct invitation to the event were Evil Geniuses and LGD Gaming.

Participating teams

Recall that Evil Geniuses won the first place in the tournament held in May of this year, The Manila Master. However, they failed to live up to their expectations and finally closed the season being eliminated in the second round of The International 2017. Since then the organization has made several adjustments, including the reinstatement of Fear to the team as position 5.

Meanwhile, LGD Gaming comes with a better picture having been 4th in the last International (eliminated by the great champion, Team Liquid). In the roster, the only change made was to incorporate Fy in position 3, instead of eLeVeN, who left for ViCi Gaming.

Finally, after competing in each closed regional, the teams that qualified and join these two guests are:

  1. Digital Chaos SA (South America - SA)- The side has fared well in the region. They arguably have the composition of the best players and even started with a practically perfect performance in the PGL Open qualifiers.
  2. Natus Vincere (Commonwealth of the Independent States - CIS)- In the deciding match, Natus Vincere defeated Team Empire with a score of 2:1.
  3. VGJ.Thunder (China - CN)- During the qualifying stage VGJ.Thunder beat KG.Luminous and Invictus Gaming. However, then lost to LFY in the final of the upper bracket. In the match for reaching the final, the team again beat IG with a score of 2:0.
  4. Mineski (South East Asia - SEA)
  5. Immortals (North America -NA)-Recall that Immortals acquired the spot of Team Phoenix (South Korea). Because they had to participate in the NA qualifier since it is where the organization is based.
  6. Team Secret (Europe - US)- The side had some convincing performances and in the final of the European qualifiers, they beat mousesports with the score 2:0.
