ASUS Final Battle of the Year this weekend

posted by Sun_Tzu, 3 years ago
The culmination of the ASUS open series is coming up this weekend, running from the 13th until the 16th of Decemeber featuring all of the big name teams from the CIS region battling it out at Kiev Cybersport Arena in Ukraine for a total prizepool of $15000.

Besides the usual ua Natus Vincere, ru Team Empire and ru Virtus.Pro; all of whom have also qualified for the StarLadder Star Series Season IV LAN finals; we will also see a few other interesting teams. Notably the same by Devil Mice team who took 3rd at World Cyber Games will be in attendance, as well as a new team headed up by a recently un-retired ua Ivan 'ArtStyle' Antonov under the name of ru United Sexy Boys. Of special note is also that Virtus.Pro are actually on a 20 game winning streak, which will truly be put to the test as they face off against Na`Vi during the groupstages.

The groupstages will consist of two groups playing round-robin best-of-1 series, with the top3 from each group advancing to the playoffs. The first placed team in each group will be seeded straight into the semi-finals, while the 2nd and 3rd place teams will play each other in a quarter-finals setup. All playoff matches will be best-of-3 series.

The tournament will be casted in Russian by the crew consisting of ua Vitalii 'v1lat' Volochai, ua Vladyslav 'mtrx4u' Suzdal and ua Roman 'CaspeRRR' Lepokhin. English livestreams are likely to be available in a similar fashion as with StarLadder online competitions, although no casters have been specified. You may also watch all matches in Dota 2 TV if you have the Star Series Season IV ticket.

United Sexy Boys Roster:

ua Ivan 'ArtStyle' Antonov
ru Aleksey 'Solo' Berezin
ru Andrey 'Dread' Golubev
ru Artern 'Sharfik' Marzavin
ru 'Jotm.Medved'

Prize Pool:

1st place - $6000
2nd place - $3000
3rd place - $2500
4th place - $2000
5th place - $750
6th place - $750

Trixi from the old old mouz has a slot for this tourney from winning the qualifier, I believe Fnatic could have played here. And Starladder finals are a week away, so why not.

predictions for group A will be Na'Vi, VP, and USB top 3,
predictions for Group B will be Empire, Devil Mice, and Illuminate top 3 in that order each group, although group a prob might have vp on 1st spot.
