Among the eight qualified teams for the second phase of Romanian Dota Pro League, one specific team draws our attention as it features the ex-Cloud 9 offlaner Pittner 'bOne7' Armand and Alexandru 'ComeWithMe' Craciunescu.
Romanian Dota Pro League Season 2 has started a month ago with four rounds of open qualifiers. The best two teams from each qualifier round advance to the second phase of the tournament which will be played in a league format.
The league phase started today and it will last till October 3rd. The eight qualified team will be playing against each other to determine the top four squads who will advance into RPDL’s playoffs.
Being a tournament dedicated to the Romanian community all the teams were compelled to have a full Romanian line-up in order to be able to participate in. From all eight teams that managed to pass the qualifier rounds one squad is especially interesting.
BlowYourMind features two TI caliber players namely b0ne7 and ComeWithMe along with three other young Romanian aspirants to higher ranks.
- Pittner 'bOne7' Armand
- Alexandru 'ComeWithMe' Craciunescu
- Bogdan 'BoB0' Carbunaru
- Alexandru 'bufni' Palievici
- Mihai canceL^^ Antonio
Their first game is set to take place tomorrow, September 20 at 17:00 CEST.
Even though it will appear that BlowYourMind are the main favorites to win the whole thing, there is another team that can easily upset them.
XPC Romania are the defending champions of RPDL and they also have been around the competitive scene for quite some time. The last three National tournaments have been won by XPC Romania and that's why they can be regarded as the best Romanian team. They are also representing their country at the upcoming National Dota2 Cup.
XPC Romania roster:
- Razvan 'Razvan' Chitanau
- Grigorie 'KeyaNo' Andrei
- Cosmin 'Masakary' Nechifor
- Razvan 'SynerGy' Strat
- Razvan 'iLLusionisT' Borceanu
