RoA and Zenith to fly to Philippines for TSEI DotA Tournament


[img][/img] [b]RoA[/b] and [img][/img] [b]Zenith[/b] have been invited to play in the finals of the Tycoon Synergy Experts, Inc. DotA Tournament, featuring a top prize of PHP 150,000 (SGD 4,935). The finals will be held on 23 June 2007, at the SM Mall of Asia Music Hall in Pasay City, Metro Manilla, Philippines.

The prizes for the tournament are the largest seen so far this year, with the PHP 150,000 (SGD 4,935) top prize already eclipsing the prize purse of most competitions in the region. The runner-up will receive PHP 50,000 (SGD 1,645) while the second runner-up will receive PHP 20,000 (SGD 987). Each finalist will receive PHP 10,000 (SGD 494) as well. This brings the total prize money up for grab to a total of PHP 400,000 (SGD 13,160).

[img][/img] [b]RoA[/b] is based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and are sponsored by Malaysian cyber cafe Cybertime. According to [img][/img] [b]mKvL`[/b] team manager “Gamma2k”, although [img][/img] [b]mKvL`[/b] [url=]defeated[/url] [img][/img] [b]RoA[/b] in a recent March tournament, he believes that in Malaysia, all top teams still agree that [img][/img] [b]RoA[/b] is still the top team to beat in Malaysia.

[img][/img] [b]Zenith[/b] is based in Singapore and are sponsored by Compaq and AMD. They are widely regarded as the top team in Singapore, having won most of the major tournaments in which they have taken part, including the recently concluded Intel Gaming Cup 2007.

According to [img][/img] [b]Zenith[/b] team member Anthony “Ant” Moh, due to Patrick “LuX” Kwan having National Service commitments, he will be unable to join the competition. Slated to take his place is “zxx”, recently recruited from [img][/img] [b]Micronology[/b]. It remains to be seen how this change in lineup will affect the team, as “LuX” has been considered the “battle commander” of [img][/img] [b]Zenith[/b], directing and co-ordinating their in-game strategy.

The two teams will join 18 other Philippines DotA teams in the finals of the TSEI DotA Tournament. Top teams [img][/img] [b]Papi[/b] and [img][/img] [b]Flow[/b], both of whom have seen action in recent Meet Your Makers Prime Defending competitions, have qualified for the finals.
