In addition to the unusual format of the championship, it turned out that the list of participants would be very interesting in the tournament. We will be able to again watch the 2011 Natus Vincere game, which became the first champion of The International, as well as The 2013 Alliance, which triumphed on TI3. The European OG team, which twice raised Aegis of Immortal at The International, will also not stand aside and will take part in this tournament, despite the declared rest of ana and Topson.
In addition to the above three teams, Sir Sadm’s Stunners, Vici Gaming, EHOME, Fnatic, BurNIng’s Legion, beastcoast, Team Anvorgesa, J. Storm and Fighting Pepegas will compete in the competition.
Midas Mode 2 will be held from September 24 to October 2. The online tournament prize pool is $ 150,000. The main features of the tournament were that all kinds of objects are subject to sale and subsequent changes, and VIP ticket holders will come to a computer club in order to manage some creeps.
The main idea of the championship is that in Midas Mode 2 you can buy and change almost all in-game objects: a tower, a mountain, an item from a store, and even heroes. Ax and Ogre Magi have already been sold and changed. Now, instead of the usual red and very warlike Ax, we will observe a peculiar version of Ricardo Milos, who came to the world of protection of the ancients in order to dispel the tense atmosphere. Fans of the Shrek cartoon will also not be left without a dose of euphoria, because the protagonist of this cartoon picture will now replace Ogre Magi. True, it will be two-headed like the original in Dota 2.
Jake Kenner even managed to sell creeps on the line. VIP ticket holders will visit a computer club in order to take control of several creatures that will spawn on the lines. With this scenario, the game promises to be even more interesting and will become more unpredictable.
Various challenges are likely to appear in the tournament, which will help teams earn extra points to win the championship. For example, in the first Midas Mode there were such challenges as “All in - buy Divine Rapier until the 30th minute of the game” or “Just Pick Techies - pick Techies”. There were more fun achievements in the form of “Targeted Toxicity - at the beginning of the game, the captain chooses an opponent whom you must insult after each of his death” or “Secret Santa - put Observer Ward, Sentry Ward and Teleport Scroll up to the 10th minute in roshpite and write “Happy Frostivus!” To notify the enemy team of the present. ” At the moment, it is not known whether this will be implemented in Midas Mode 2 or not, but if Jake Kenner decides to take such a move, then he definitely will not be superfluous.
