EPICENTER is under two days away and with that the talent for the event has been announced along with the overall format of the Dota 2 Pro Circuit’s final Major of the season.
While the group stage of the event will feature a very different set of casters, commentators and analysts, we will get so see some of our favourites guide us through the playoffs. The group stages will be covered by an amalgamation of fairly well-known casters who won the Casting Contest, such as; Jack ‘MoFarah’ Williams and Benjamin ‘Bkop’ Kopilow.
The playoff Broadcast Talent for the EPICENTER Major is:
- Jorien ‘Sheever’ Van Der Heijden
- Alan ‘Nahaz’ Bester
- Leah Blake
- Trent ‘Trent’ Mackenzie
- Admir ‘Lizzard’ Salkanovic
- Dominik ‘Lacoste’ Stipic
- David ‘Godz’ Parker
- Owen ‘ODPixel’ Davies
- Ioannis ‘Fogged’ Loucas
- Toby ‘Tobiwan’ Dawson
- Kyle ‘Kyle’ Freedman
The group stage of EPICENTER kicks off on Saturday and will see two of the four groups get their action done and out of the way. The top two teams from each group will advance into the event’s Upper Bracket for the playoffs, while the bottom two will move into the Lower Bracket. While all group stage games are best-of-three, the Lower Bracket’s first round is a daunting best-of-one elimination matchup – so you can expect all teams to be trying hard to avoid that.
EPICENTER is the final Major of the season and with the four spots still available at The International 2019 via DPC points, you can expect this to be one of the most exciting events to close out the season.
