Dota 2 Professional League Season 6 Playoffs Begin with a Last-Minute Withdrawal
The much-anticipated Dota 2 Professional League Season 6 Playoffs have finally arrived, but not without a surprise. LGD Gaming, despite their undefeated run in the group stage, has withdrawn from the event, citing strenuous training sessions and lack of rest as the main reasons. This unexpected development not only affects their chances in the current playoffs but also means they will have to go through open qualifiers for future seasons. The remaining five teams are still ready to compete for their share of the prize money and a spot in MDL Macau 2019. Vici Gaming, with a perfect 5-0 run, now faces increased pressure as the sole top seed in the bracket. The Round of 6 will see Invictus Gaming take on iG Vitality, while EHome battles Newbee in a highly anticipated match-up. The matches will take place from December 27 to December 30, with invites to two upcoming events on the line for the winner.
