Official List for the Manila Major Released + Update

ESL One Manila has ended with spectacular and unexpected results – the venue was amazing, the crowd was hyped to the heavens, and Wings Gaming claimed the crown. Definitely a tourney to remember. ๐Ÿ™‚


But now that it’s over, everyone is hyped for the next big thing to come to SM Mall of Asia Arena – the Manila Major. I’m on the r/dota2 subreddit quite a lot, since I sometimes play, and everyone is buzzing about who the invited teams are going to be. ๐Ÿ˜›

Well, no more need to speculate – here is the official list (minus the ones that will be coming from the qualifiers)!


Team Secret, EG, Fnatic, Vici Gaming, Wings (being the recent ESL One champ) and Complexity are no surprise, although I’m a bit confused as to why OG and Alliance had direct invites. I mean, their recent performances haven’t been that impressive and that Empire should have gotten the invite instead. However, I’m glad that fan favourites like NaVi and VG are present.ย  ๐Ÿ˜€

Who else is going to watch the Manila Major? My brothers and I are going, and if you guys are too, we hope to see you there! โค

UPDATE: the remaining four slots went to the winners of the Qualifiers, mainly Mineski (SEA), Newbee (China), Empire (Europe) and Digital Chaos (Americas). GZ everyone!
