There is less than one day now until the first regional qualifiers for the first Major and Minor begin. They should have started a week ago, but due to the schedule conflict with Midas Mode 2.0, Valve decided to postpone them.
One thing that shocked us is the fact that Europe has only two slots for the first Major. This is very strange because it is undoubtedly the strongest region in Dota 2 right now. However, some of the best teams from here won’t be taking part in the first Major due to their break. This could be one of the reasons behind Valve’s decision, but nevertheless, it is still strange.

The newest team that will be joining the upcoming DPC events qualifier is Team Ascomanni. It was formed shortly after TI 9 came to an end. The interesting thing about it is that it is entirely made up of players from Denmark. Of course, leading the pack is Marcus “Ace” Hoelgaard, one of the best carries in the world.
Another very famous player is Jon “BabyKnight” Andersen, who used to be a real legend back in DotA. Even though he has not been in any tier one team recently, Jon definitely has what it takes to compete at the highest level in professional Dota.
Team Ascomanni roster from 1 to 5:
Marcus “Ace” Hoelgaard
Jon “BabyKnight” Andersen
Mikki Mørch “HesteJoe-Rotten” Junget
Danny “Noia” Junget
The European closed qualifiers are starting tomorrow. Ten teams will be split into two groups of five in what looks to be a pretty epic day of Dota 2. Both groups seem to be relatively decently balanced, even though Group B appears to be a little bit more entertaining to watch. We will be able to see Team Liquid’s and Alliance’s new rosters in action for the first time. Be sure to watch it because it is going to be epic.
