The Dota Pro Circuit Asia competition recently got underway for tour 3. From PSG.LGD to Fnatic, sixteen teams from two different regions, China and Southeast Asia, are battling it out for tickets to the Arlington Major. Let's take a look at last week's events and next week's matches.
Two teams played twice in both regions last week, Nigma Galaxy SEA won one of them in the Southeast Asian competition and Polaris went without a win. PSG.LGD and Dandelion Esport Club also lost one of their two matches in the Chinese league. Below are the highlights from both regions.
DPC China Week 1
The second match of the day was PSG.LGD vs. EHOME. The International 10 runners-up started off with a quick win, but EHOME shocked them by completing the reverse sweep and taking a win away from PSG.LGD.
In their second match of the week, Dandelion Esport Club got off to another good start and took the lead against PSG.LGD. However, PSG.LGD could not accept a 0-2 week as they reverse swept DEC and went home with a win.
DPC Southeast Asia Week 1
Talon Esports vs Polaris Esports opened the first week of DPC SEA, which turned out to be one of the most exciting weeks of the DPC so far. After three close games, Talon Esports walked away with a win on their debut, but it was a series they will surely remember for a long time.
The third day of the week witnessed a great match between Fnatic and Nigma Galaxy SEA. After three long games that lasted almost three hours including the breaks, Fnatic emerged victorious. However, the series was so close that they may not be completely satisfied with the result after all.
NGX SEA played its second game against Polaris Esports. Polaris once again managed to force their opponent to take a loss, but ultimately lost the series 2-1.
Finally, T1 played RSG to close out the week. After the first game which lasted almost an hour where RSG won, it looked like they might end it quickly, but T1 responded with a strong game in the next. However, the fifth decider of the week went to RSG and they had no problems either.
