TI5 silver and bronze medalists CDEC and LGD invited to MLG World Finals

posted by ProxyPL,
Shortly after the announcement of Korean record-breakers kr MVP Phoenix* being invited to the MLG World Finals we can reveal another two teams that will be heading to New Orleans. They are none other than cn CDEC Gaming and cn LGD-Gaming, the 2nd and 3rd place finishers of TI5. This will mark the first time that Chinese teams attend the joinDOTA MLG Pro League.

Chinese teams didn’t attend previous editions of joinDOTA MLG Pro League, but they will be heading to MLG’s 100th event with a bang! The best two Chinese teams from last month's TI5 will fly to New Orlean to compete in the $250,000 event, and based off their performance at TI5, will definitely put on a show.

CDEC Gaming had to be very satisfied with their incredible run at The International 5. They decided not to make any roster changes and compete in the next season with the same line-up that defeated Cloud9, LGD and EG in the upperbracket of TI5.

On the other hand LGD Gaming, despite their very respectable 3rd place finish at TI 5 have swapped two players as both cn Yao 'Yao' Zhengzheng as well as cn Zhang 'xiao8' Ning , who will act as substitutes for the team while cn Fan 'rOtk' Bai and mo Leong 'DDC' Fatmeng will be the primary players for now.

The 100th MLG event will celebrate MLG's 13 years in the business, with the organisation having given away more than $13.5 million in prize money over the years. The location for the 3-day grand occasion is the New Orleans Theater from the 16-18th October, and tickets (enter discount code: joindota manually at checkout) are still on sale! MLG has also gone to great lengths to add a hotel feature recommending hotels near the event so if you're looking to go then definitely have a look.
