Fnatic 0:1 No Tidehunter
21:00- The game ended at about 23 minutes with a score of 23-11 in favor of NTH. A few early deaths from Trixi got us off to a rocky start and the Bear scaling superbly well with the kills got him enough items to dominate the map. We would be getting 50 points for the third cup and would likely be making it to group stages.
The European community was thrilled to find out ESL's initiation into the world of Dota 2. With almost $39,000 on the line in each of the four seasons for each of the game,the competition will surely be intense along with unprecedented production value. Fnatic's European Dota 2 team is one of the strongest in Europe right now and saw its hard work rewarded by getting an instant invitation into the first RC EMS One season, which is set to start February 11th, Monday. We'll be going up against teams such as No Tidehunter, Natus Vincere, Empire and others to fight for the top prize. EMS One season is bound to have some very exciting games between Europe & NA's best.
