The world's top national Dota 2 teams are competing in Haikou at WESG 2017. Four of the ru squad are trying to win their third big tournament in a row, while se Jonathan 'Loda' Berg and his Swedes are crashing out at the other end of the spectrum in a group stage defeat.

That's it: 0-3! se Alliance, despite being favourites and using the legendary se Joakim 'Akke' Akterhall as a stand-in to make their squad 100% Swedish, is out of the tournament without a single win. How the mighty have fallen.

Group C almost gets Sliced n Diced

The upset comes courtesy of eg Slice n Dice Esports, the Egyptian winners of the North Africa qualifier. They opened with a strong performance in beating Loda and Co., and then bested NA squad us Leviathan to finish with a 2-1 record. Unfortunately, that wasn't enough to make it out of groups.

While Russians ru Team Empire Hope, Slice n Dice, and Leviathan are all are on a 2-1 result, the Swedes can pack up and prepare to go home - but they can take heart from the fact that they are not the only Europeans to meet a quick end in China.

SingSing and Co. drown against EHOME

nl BeanBoys* got off to a rough start against China's finest: cn EHOME were unstoppable in their opening match-up. While the Dutch squad formed around nl Wehsing 'SingSing' Yuen and nl Alaan 'Bamboe' Faraj could have hoped to take second place in their group, a strong showing from Kazakh squad kz NiceOne ensured that they will be heading home early.
