The National DotA Championship lands on Melaka shores for the weekend as new waves of talent are honed for the prestigious DotA battle ahead!
11th-12th May 2013, MELAKA – Third is indeed the charm as fellow DotArians began their early conquest to capture the crowned DotA fortune at Sendi Mutiara Multimedia, following a massive turnout that overwhelmed the entire Blue Dolphin Internet Cafe at the latest SMM National DotA Championship 2013’ State Qualifiers here in Bukit Beruang. A weekend filled with DotA action soon took graceful precedence as more than 100 players joined in to firmly entrench their opportune dominance to clinch the pivotal qualifying slot into the SMM Malaysia DotA Grand Finals 2013’ – garnered only for the reigning champions, the 1st runner-ups, and the 2nd runner-ups. Nevertheless, safeguarding the ancient is a task that comes almost second to nature for DotArians as they look to defend their namesake against all odds. Crowd favourites Team 'SINO' was among the list of contenders who took to their stride to lay waste when faced with the strongest of foes from the likes of Team ‘TENSION, Team JET, and Team NEVERTRAIN’ who performed audaciously well. However, a very resurgent Team ‘SINO’ exhibited their gleaming experience and fortitude in the heat of battle as they persevered through to the Semi-Finals in elegant momentum. There, Team ‘SINO’ and Team ‘H20’ stood out in the open side by side – as these two titans meet and greet with fiery flair, ever ready to knock their opposing nemesis off the perch and into the final-round. A classic hero-ban of ‘Magnus, the Magnataur’ for Team ‘SINO’ by ‘WANDER’WUYAN-SN’ soon ensued as the drafting sequence played in strategic motion. Returning the favour was a respected ban for ‘Boush, the Tinker’, promptly given by Team ‘H20’ as cheeky retort. As the clock ticked 1:17 pm – DotA time, first blood was spilled at the magical mauls of ‘Puck, the Faerie Dragon’, played by ‘H20-WUHU’ who wittily channelled his energy clout towards a very unsuspecting ‘Akasha, the Queen of Pain’ in middle lane. Mustering his early boost in confidence, ‘H20-WUHU’ went on to claim a double kill as ‘Eredar, the Shadow Demon’ played by ‘WANDER’XAN’ succumbed to grievous injury in the noble wee hours of ward planting. As chaos spurned wildly on multiple fronts, a sturdily farmed ‘Syllabear, the Lone Druid’ played by ‘H20_CHALAPAO’ rumbled and roll with his Spirit-Bear sidekick – lopping over the first tower of the game off its very foundation to earn a nifty cash injection for his loyal companion. Despite the courageous and corrosive forte of ‘Razzil Darkbrew, the Alchemist’ played by ‘SINO’JVLS’, the strength of the Scourges were too prevalent to be relinquished as the tides of battle fell under the bony fingertips of a very obese ‘Clinkz, the Bone Fletcher’ played by ‘H20_SP’ – wielding in clattering glory his shiny ‘Buriza-do-Kyanon, Orchid Malevolence, and Black King Bar’ at his would-be oppressors, proving himself to be an undead fletcher too swift and deadly for contest. Picking up the pieces from their previous setback, Team ‘SINO’ marched on stalwartly to claim 2nd Runner-Up in the 2013’ SMM National DotA Championship here in Melaka, defeating a very formidable Team ‘ZEROHOUR’ in the process. While the battle may be won, the war is still far from over for the next presiding qualifier in Negeri Sembilan has awakened from its slumber as the gates of Forbidden City Cyber Cafe lies bequeathed for the taking – come this 25th & 26th of May.
