Dota 2: WePlay! Pushka League Will Take Place in April

WePlay! has yet another interesting event for all Dota 2 fans out there.

Despite the fact that the world is not functioning properly in the last month or so due to the COVID-19 outbreak, WePlay! is one of the big esports organizations hosting various Dota 2 events.

After we watched the WeSave! Charity Play, there is one more tournament on the horizon. The WePlay! Pushka League will begin on the 23rd of April and will bring together 14 teams in total. Seven of them are going to be from Europe, whereas the other seven will be from the CIS.

The event

As you probably guessed, this will be en entirely online tournament. Despite that, these teams will be playing for a whopping $250K USD prize pool

All teams will have to compete in a best-of-three round-robin series. Once the group stages are over, the top four teams will advance to the playoffs. There, they will play in a double-elimination bracket where every series will a Bo3. Of course, the Grand Final is going to be a classic best-of-five series.

Europen Teams

As we’ve mentioned, there will be seven teams from Europe, Dota 2’s strongest region right now. For now, we know six names, which means that there is one more team who will be attending this tournament:

  • Nigma
  • Team Secret
  • Team Liquid
  • Alliance
  • OG
  • Ninjas in Pyjamas
  • TBD

The names here are nothing short but impressive. WePlay! has invited every top European team right now, so determining which of them will continue forward is very, very hard. Judging by what we’ve seen recently, Nigma is in excellent shape. They had little to no problem in the WeSave! the event that took place just a few days ago.

However, with so many good teams, we can’t just point at one of them and say that they will win. Team Secret and OG are also among the heavy favorites. Clement “Puppey” Ivanov’s squad was one of the best performing teams prior to the COVID-19 situation. On the other hand, the two-times TI winners are also here. Although they’re not with the same roster, the new OG looked incredibly deadly, so it will be very interesting to see what will happen.

CIS Teams

In addition to some of the top EU teams, Dota 2 fans will also watch the best CIS teams. Here are the other teams that will play here:

  • Natus Vincere
  • Virtus.Pro
  • Gambit Esports
  • HellRaisers
  • B8
  • Team Spirit

Similar to EU, we still don’t know who will be the last team in this tournament.

At first glance, it seems like the main battle will be between the usual suspects – VP and Na’Vi. However, that’s not totally true, especially after the most recent results from some teams. For example, HellRaisers played very well in the previous tournament that was hosted from WePlay!.

Of course, we also can’t leave Gambit out of the picture. This team has proven countless times that it has what it takes to bring down even the best teams in the world.

Last, but definitely not least, we also have Danil “Dendi” Ishutin’s new team – B8. These guys have been around for around a month but are yet to make their mark on the big stage.

Be sure not to miss out on this event because it’s going to be epic. In the meantime, feel free to follow ESTNN on Facebook and Twitter.
