Starladder Season IX day one coverage

For many this Thursday morning will begin with study or work, but this day will be remembered for the beginning of the grandiose season 9 StarLadder finals. It’s called grandiose for a reason, because for the first time of all seasons, the CyberArena in Kiev brought not only Europe’s best Dota 2 teams, but also added Asia and the USA to the list. All the teams will play for 4 awesome days for a total prize pool of more than 210 000$.

 

As result of yesterday’s draw, Natus Vincere are in group B, along with iG, EG and RoX.KIS, and in group A we have Empire, Alliance, DK and MVP. This immediately brought up the question “What group is the hardest for teams”, but the community couldn’t decide. Because everyone understands, that in such events it doesn’t matter who is your opponent in the group, if you want to become a champion – you have to be the strongest in the whole tournament.
