TI2: M5 & MUFC Invited - Two Wild Card Slots Left
Submitted by dpm on Fri, 01/06/2012 - 07:02
Moscow 5 (M5) and MUFC are the last two invited teams for The International. For the two Wild Card spots, sixteen teams have been invited to compete in two divisions, "West" and "East". The format will be Bo3 Double Elimination, with a Bo5 Final. Only one team from each division will be at The International. Gosugamers and JoinDota will host one qualifier each from June 6-10.
Wild Card Contenders
Although M5 has an entirely different line-up from their roster who placed 5th/6th at The International after losing to 2nd place winner, EHOME, they are a force to be reckoned with. They recently displayed this by beating many of the invited teams over the past few weeks in some tournaments and leagues.
MUFC's invite comes as no surprise. Like M5, they are on par with many of the invited teams. Last year at The International, they were one step away from winning a cash prize. With almost the exact same roster, but with Daniel 'TFG' Wong Wei Khit filling in KyxY's spot, they are lined up to do some serious damage.
