Dota 2 weekly news
Surely, the most striking news of the week in Dota 2 was the disband of Natus Vincere's team. However, many other things happened in the same time. Let's recall what recently happened in Dota 2.
The participants of The Frankfurt Major were determined
The second participant from the European region is Alliance. The team was so happy to win the slot, that it gave money to a fan, so that he could make a tattoo of the team's logo. Lots of movies has been recently created and lots of posts has been written about the Swedes' aspiration and pursuance of their dream slot. The event in Frankfurt is "nearer" than winter. It will be held on 16-21 November.
Team Secret won MLG World Finals
100th event was held in American city of New Orleans on 16-18 October. The grand final was a clash of two powerful western teams - Team Secret and Evil Geniuses. Team Secret challenged the seemingly traditional pick of their rivals with the unusual heroes in the very first encounter. It took 4 games of best of 5 series for them to determine the winner. 3:1, an unexpected result, since most players were expecting EG to win.

The reshuffles in the CIS Dota 2 scene
Not only Natus Vincere was disappointed with the results of its Dota 2 squad at The Frankfurt Major qualifiers. HellRaisers and CIS Rejects have undergone changes too. It was expected, as many analysts had predicted the qualifiers to be the borderline of the existe
nce of many mixes, which had been formed after TI 2015. The qualifiers were the test field for many teams, including Na`Vi. Those who didn't pass the test are to undergo the change.
