Firstly, our NA battalion for the DOTA 2 division has been making some ripples in the amateur pro scene lately. Firstly, the team is currently ranked 4th in the Alienware tournament with an impressive 6-2 record. After finally achieving a solid line-up and positions, they face their toughest competitors yet tomorrow, facing off first against the #1 team in the Arena, and then against the #8 team. These games are happening at 9pm and 10:30pm EST respectively. The following day, they play the #42 team in the league at 9pm EST. The games can be watched by utilizing the Dota 2 Spectator Client (will open a link through Steam). Note: You will have to watch the game off one of the members playing the game. If you have any questions, you can direct them to captain, iKoN (Steam). The details about our team (roster, previous matches, place, and upcoming matches) can all be viewed at our team's page at the Alienware site.
Secondly, our sunday night inhouse is going to be casted by the popular caster Draskyll. He's co-casted such events as the International (biggest Dota 2 tournament) as well as many other smaller tournaments throughout the year. Popular within the GosuGamers community, he's attracted a decent following of getting over 2000 people to watch him play in solo queue or if he's co-casting some tournament. It's through the help of our member, ElectricHaze, that we're given the oppurtunity to strut our stuff to his following, gaining TAW some nice popularity if nothing else. This will be happening around 10:15pm EST on Sunday on Draskyll's Stream. Another oppurtunity to get to see our guys in action as well as learn more about this complex game.
In the esteemed words of NA CO iKoN, "making big plays".
