G2 Esports Ventures into Dota 2 Through Invictus Gaming Partnership

G2-IG Dota 2

In a groundbreaking move, G2 Esports has officially entered the realm of Dota 2 through a strategic partnership with the renowned Chinese organization Invictus Gaming (iG). This collaboration marks G2’s first foray into the Dota 2 scene and a significant expansion into the Chinese esports market. Invictus Gaming, with its illustrious history in Dota 2, brings a wealth of experience and talent to the table.

Under the banner of G2.iG, the newly formed team is set to make its debut at the upcoming ESL One Kuala Lumpur tournament. The ESL One Kuala Lumpur tournament is especially significant as it is the first major competition post-The International 12, attracting attention from fans eager to witness the performance of revamped rosters.

For G2 Esports, this partnership signifies a strategic move to establish a presence in the challenging Chinese market, a territory that has posed difficulties for expansion in the past. Dota 2, known for its competitive nature and top-tier rosters, has been a formidable space to navigate. By aligning with Invictus Gaming, G2 not only secures a spot in one of the world’s leading esports scenes but also gains access to a well-established brand in the Chinese market, creating a mutually beneficial alliance.

Alban Dechelotte, Chief Executive Officer of G2 Esports, expressed his enthusiasm about this milestone, stating, “This is an incredibly exciting time for G2 as we continue our global expansion. We could not have found a better partner in iG – we can’t wait to start this alliance together and build our footprint in China.” Emphasizing the importance of China as a priority market, he highlighted the opportunity to connect with millions of Chinese fans by fielding a local team.

G2’s venture into Dota 2 follows its recent takeover of the operations for the Minnesota Røkkr Call of Duty team, demonstrating the organization’s rapid and strategic expansion across various esports titles. With teams now spanning nine top games, G2 Esports solidifies its position as a major player in the esports industry, poised for success in the dynamic world of Dota 2.

Ame’s Triumphant Return!

Chinese Dota 2 sensation Wang “Ame” Chunyu makes a triumphant return to professional play, joining Xtreme Gaming after a year-long hiatus from LGD Gaming’s inactive roster. Xtreme Gaming expressed excitement about Ame’s signing, acknowledging his storied career and numerous championships. Ame’s return is met with optimism, with Xtreme Gaming looking to harness his expertise to revitalize the team. However, the current roster puzzle at Xtreme Gaming, lacking a midlaner, offlaner, and position four support, adds an element of anticipation to Ame’s journey. The community eagerly awaits the comeback of this legendary player to witness his prowess once again.
