posted by Jaywalker, 2 years ago
Day 1 of SMM 2012 has concluded, and all four DotA teams from the Philippines were showcasing their dominance in the competition.
Make sure you find out how each group went here.
The biggest elimination from the group stage would definitely be the exit of SINO. The team performed exceptionally well up against Orange eSports yesterday in the 1Malaysia DotA tournament, but they found themselves severely underperforming today and eliminated.
The scariest teams coming out from the group stage would be Dreamz.Ledion along with MUFC eSports. Both teams demonstrated a sense of urgency and ruthlessness that few teams could match.
The 16 teams that will go through to the next round have already been matched up, and there are definitely several games that look promising. Below are the brackets for tomorrow's playoffs:
The playoffs is double elimination, and all matches will be best of one up till the grand final. Be sure to tune in tomorrow for more great games of DotA.
