Coin Toss Determines Tiebreaker Winner in Dota 2 Matchup
In a unique turn of events, a one-versus-one tiebreaker match in Dota 2 had to be determined by a coin toss. The matchup took place at BetBoom Dacha Dubai and involved players Quinn Callahan from Gaimin Gladiators and Stanislav “Malr1ne” Potorak from Team Falcons. The reason behind this decision was that both players were reluctant to play the match, as a win meant going up against the formidable Team Spirit in the playoffs.
The Background Story
Gaimin Gladiators and Team Falcons finished with the same ranking in Group A, requiring a tiebreaker match to determine their positions for the playoffs. The winner of this one-versus-one match would face the runner-up from Group B in the first round of the playoffs. However, the team waiting for them was none other than the reigning champions of Dota 2’s The International tournament – Team Spirit.
