Hoping For A Back-To-Back Win For OG

Tomorrow is the big day of DotA2's The International (TI) 9 at Shanghai, China. OG successfully made it to the finals by eliminating PSG LGD in the Upper Bracket. They await the winner of Team Liquid vs PSG LGD tomorrow for the Grand Finals. I am hoping that it will be a match between OG and Team Liquid – both champions of TI.
I've been a fan of OG since I watched the rivalry of former team mates N0tail and Fly (of Evil Geniuses) and I was amazed at OG's performance last year. They were not directly invited to TI8 but they made it via regional tournament. Then they slay everyone at the lower bracket to finally eliminate PSG LGD at the grand finals.

I've been playing DotA2 for several years now, but I only followed The International last year. In fact, I missed the Manila Major when it was staged here in the Philippines. My friends at work got me into watching professional players play the game that we love. It's fun. It's like watching professional basketball or soccer matches.
I even created a Twitter account just to follow professional DotA2 players and teams. Slowly, I get familiar with the teams from South East Asia (SEA) like our very own TNC Predator and Mineski. I also got acquainted with Virtus Pro, Team Secret, Ninja in Pyjamas, Alliance, etc.
The International is the biggest eSports event. Last year, the total pool prize for DotA2 reached $20+ million. This year, the prize pool for TI9 is now at $33 million dollars. That's just 25% of all the total earnings from Battle Pass and other in-game items. Imagine how much Valve is earning just from DotA2 alone.
Tomorrow, I'm hoping that OG will finally be the first team to claim the Aegis of Immortality (the trophy) two times. I hope N0tail, Ceb, JerAx, ana and Topson will have a great time tomorrow and claim the biggest prize in eSports as well as gaining the admiration of Chinese fans (who boo them in their match with PSG LGD).
Good luck OG!

The Night to Brawl is Here: Ragnarok Online Fight Night 2

After the successful merge of the servers Valkyrie (PH) and Thor (MYSG), here comes the night to brawl and be the best in Valhalla.

Electronics Extreme Ltd. starts off its events for the combined Ragnarok Online server with Fight Night 2 after the two regional servers were recently combined into one. Fight Night 2 is the battle to prove the strength of the guilds by competing in a 56-vs-56 tournament.

After releasing a teaser last month, details were finally announced in the official page regarding Fight Night 2, the sequel to one of the most anticipated events of Ragnarok Online. The first Fight Night was held earlier this year both in PH and MYSG servers separately. But this time, since all players are now in one server, all guilds will come to face their counterparts from other regions. Although this is the second Fight Night, it will be the first event where all Filipino, Malaysian, and Singaporean players come together.

Having more competitors stand against them, who will be able to fight their way and succeed to reach the top? Find out through the updates from the official website
