Virtus Pro have consistently demonstrated their strength and the performance of the team has only been at a peak. They are one of the strongest team in the Dota2 scene with very aggressive and strong performances in the early game. Ofcourse they are still adjusting to the new patch but we expect them to perform really well in the near future.
The organizers of Galaxy Battles 2 have invited Virtus.pro to the Major’s main stage, which will take place in Bulacan province in the beginning of the following year. Our team was the eighth one to receive the direct invite to the Philippine tournament.
OG, TNC Pro Team, Infamous, Newbee, LGD.Forever Young, Evil Geniuses and Team Liquid were directly invited earlier. Six more teams will advance through the regional qualifiers, with the last two arriving in Manila through the Wild Card.
Galaxy Battles 2 series will become the first major of 2018 and will take place 16-21 January in the Philippines. The championship’s prize pool – $1.000.000 and 1.500 Dota Pro Circuit points.
