    Alliance says it's time for a couple of changes, and today they say goodbye to Gustav "S4" Magnusson and Jerry "EGM" Lundkvist. Will Alliance be the same? Will they become better? Who do they replace with? It should be interesting next tournament to see how they do!

    "In February of 2013, just a few months removed from taking first place at DreamHack Winter, a team by the name of No TideHunter made a controversial roster change. The team's four Swedish players had decided that it would be best to move to an all-Swedish lineup, and thus replaced the very popular EternaLEnVy with Jerry "EGM" Lundvkist, who was at the time a much smaller name than his predecessor.

    Much of the community did not approve. But after several public comments from Loda and EE, and then several months of impassioned forum arguments made by fans on each side of the fence, the team's results started to pour in. And as we all know, convincing facts can end a debate quite quickly.

    From EGM's debut in February '13 through the end of August '13, the team now called Alliance had one of the most dominant runs ever achieved by a professional Dota 2 team. Within a six-month span, Alliance won back-to-back StarLadder titles, back-to-back TPL titles, and DreamHack Summer. They dominated Asia's best at the G-1 Champions League, where they didn't drop a single map. And all of this, of course, was on the way to winning The International 3 with an overall tournament map score of 23-3.

    Outside of the game, the team was equally special. Those of us who are close to the players know that Alliance's team environment felt less like a group of hired professionals, and more like a family. The team was close-knit, and often spent their holidays and free time together."

  • Compendium Progress -- 7.5M in 10/90 Days!
    MissFortier
    The International prize pool is already halfway to the 15 million dollar mark in just 10 days, with 90 days to go. They're still working on building the second set of Immortal items, but they’re not quite ready yet. The most important aspect of these Immortals is their quality level, so they're also planning on spending some extra time polishing them rather than releasing them quickly.
    You’ll still see an update to the Compendium this week though. Included in that update you’ll...

  • Welcoming Epizootic and his DOTA 2 team to Lzuruha Gaming!
    Abschatten
    After being contacted by Epizootic and his team I personally decided to give them a good look over to see what they were about and what their goals were in the long run, after getting to talk to them for forty minutes we decided to go ahead and play a match of DOTA 2 together just for the giggles. Sixty minutes later come to find out not only are they a fun group of people they are also some pretty good players, They are definitely a team with a lot of potential.


    They have been a team now for only six months but, they have all known each other for two years now, and which they call this team forming "A long time coming" Each member has a large amount of experience in the DOTA community and Loudmetal is one of the trio in the podcast known as "Dota Insight". Let's see what they have to say about themselves here in their personal input's!



    Roster: Miguel “Epizootic” Herna...
