Alliance and Team Liquid will face each other in the lower bracket #2 of the OGA Dota PIT 2020 Online: EU tournament. The OGA DotaPIT is a $150,000 online tournament featuring the best Dota 2 teams in action. It has two sections - Europe/CIS and China. There are two groups of five teams each. The group stage features a round-robin best of three format. Eight of the ten teams will advance to the playoffs, with the last team in each facing elimination from the tournament.
Alliance cruised through the tournament’s group stage with a 3-1 score. En route to the playoffs, Alliance defeated teams like Hellraisers, Vikin.gg and FlyToMoon. Alliance has a Swedish roster and with S4’s return to professional Dota 2, the team has a lot of experience between the players. So far in the tournament, S4’s initiations have been on point and he has been able to create multiple advantages for the team.
Team Liquid’s Dota 2 roster has not been in the best form as their understanding of the game’s meta continues to evolve. The team had a relatively slow start to the tournament, barely scraping past their opponents into the playoffs.
