The community had a lot to say about the curious proceedings in the most hotly-contested zone.
With the Western Europe Dota Pro Circuit’s first tour coming to a close, three teams remained tied in third place — two-time The International winners OG, current Aegis holder Tundra Esports and potent powerhouse Entity. This has enforced a three-way tiebreaker to decide the last two WEU squads to take part in the upcoming Lima Major.
Although it’s well-known that these teams are pretty evenly balanced, nobody could have predicted that the tiebreakers would go on for two entire rounds without a final result. The same results have repeated twice, with none of the three teams having been able to break the deadlock and take the lead.
A Third Round of Tiebreakers
Tundra Esports, Entity and OG will play a third round of tiebreakers later tonight after a tough night of battles between them. Following this curious series of events, Dota 2 players and personalities took to Twitter to comment on the seemingly endless tiebreakers in the WEU Dota Pro Circuit (DPC).
Wu “Sneyking” Jingjun
The TI-winning captain made his opinion of the tiebreaks clear with a simple, precise and incisive statement.
Martin “Saksa” Sazdov
The TI11 champion, who had just played two sets of tiebreakers, summed up his feelings with just three words.
David “MoonMeander” Tan
TSM coach MoonMeander Tweeted that he was a big fan of the never-ending WEU DPC tiebreakers. His old rival Sneyking, though, fired back saying that he wouldn’t enjoy them if he had to take part in them as a player.
Robson “TeaGuvnor” Merritt
TeaGuvnor, who has been busy these days as a WEU DPC broadcaster, also found entertainment in the tiebreakers and memed about them. He said that he is waiting for today's third and final round of tiebreakers with great anticipation.
Many people have been pointing out that it was Nigma whose triumph over OG prompted the need for so many tiebreaker matches. Meanwhile, all Nigma did was just ask the teams involved about how long they expected the tiebreakers to go on for.
Snarky as always, OG's Twitter account posted this to much hilarity.
