Darer, EG, LGD & Zenith Going to The International
Submitted by dpm on Fri, 25/05/2012 - 04:01

Darer, Evil Geniuses (EG), LGD-Gaming (LGD) and Zenith joins Absolute Legends (aL), Complexity Gaming(coL), Counter Logic Gaming (CLG), DK E-sports Club (DK), EHOME E-Sports Club (EHOME), Invictus Gaming (iG), Natus Vincere (Na`Vi) and Orange ESports (Orange) as invited teams to The International. This leaves only two more slots for invited teams and two Wild Card spots.

Darer's recent acquisition of three players from DTS. Chatrix, has enabled them to beat some teams already invited to the International. They beat aL in SL Stars and CLG in the Pro Dota 2 League in the past few days.

EG's consistency in staying on as one of the best teams since its formation has paid off. Its roster is no stranger to The International with four of them competing last year. Maelk and DeMoN were in Meet You Makers (MYM) and Fear and UNiVeRsE represented

LGD, one of China's top teams is no surprise addition to the invited teams list. The team was invited last year, but was unable to attend after losing four core players.

Zenith has taken the Dota 2 scene by storm, with three Scythe members from The International last year, hyhy, iceiceice and xy-. They are joined by the legendary Loda, who recently moved to Singapore, and locally known xFreedom.

Which teams do you want to get the last two invited slots? How do you think they will give Wild Card slots?
