News - Dota 2 in UK
Nothing is permanent except change and the Dota 2 community is no stranger to transience. Following the departure of Josh “Mute242” Barlow and Jason “1cHiGo” Wong, Reason Gaming embraced changes yet again with a new roster announced earlier today.
Great news for the UK Dota community today as one of our teams have been invited to compete at the Electronic Sports World Cup starting the 30th of October.
Team Infused re-enter the UK Dota 2 scene today with their latest edition to the prestigious organisation. This time it's the boys and girls from BBQ Chicken eSports (BCE). A team who've won many a fan in their short airtime in UK events.
Campus Party is an annual week long, 24-hours-a-day technology festival where thousands of “Campuseros” (hackers, developers, gamers and technophiles), equipped with laptops, camp on-site and immerse themselves in a truly unique environment.
This years Campus Party is being hosted at the O2 Arena in London and will feature the biggest prize pool in UK Dota to date.
Following on with our Insomnia 49 coverage, we sat down with Reason-Gaming's Captain, Kieran 'DreadKnight' Ghatora after their game versus against All authority in the upper bracket semi finals.
I had the pleasure of having a chat with Tyrox the captain of BBQ Chicken E-Sports; who despite being new to the competitive scene have completed group stages as Insomnia 49 with no losses. Which is really exciting for this young team.
The first in a series of articles covering Insomnia 49's Dota 2 Tournament. The biggest UK Dota 2 LAN event to date, boasting an impressive £2,000 minimum prize pool and five Shogun Bros Ballista Mice. Today we'll be looking at the 'Ones to watch' and our pundits' opinions on what we think their final standings will be when the smoke clears on Monday.
One week to go until the biggest event of the year! There’s a £2,000 prize pool on the cards for Dota 2 at the moment, rising to £2,500 if a few more teams sign up, and a whole host of other cool stuff going on at the festival, so I thought I’d better fill you in on all the important stuff.
Meltdown - the UK's first dedicated esports bar - are hosting what is probably going to be the worlds biggest pubstomp yet for the final two days of The International 3. This is the first Dota pubstomp at Meltdown, and so there's never been a better time to show Valve and the rest of the world how strongly the UK loves its Dota 2.
At last weekend epic.ELEVEN, hundreds of gamers armed only with their computers and various amounts of energy drink descended upon the Kettering Conference Centre. At epic.LAN, predictably, various gaming tournaments were held in an attempt to ascertain who, in attendance, was best at playing a particular game. One of these games was our old favourite, Dota 2 where four UK teams competed for the £525 1st place prize pool.
We are happy to announce that after a short period of time, Reason Gaming has revived their Dota 2 team with a new line-up as well as plans to compete at i49.
