The Online Qualifier for the much anticipated Insomnia Gaming Festival has concluded after a few weeks of intense action!
While the Dota world turns its mighty head to Seattle for the International weekend, we will be warming up the day with the finals of the Insomnia49 Online Qualifiers. After three long weeks of intense matches, both anticipated stomps and surprises, just six teams retain the possibility of taking first prize.
The games start at 11am on the 3rd of August and will be finished before The International broadcast begins. Casting will be on the Multiplay Twitch Channel with Mr Blakadder and Durka.
A long weekend of exciting games saw the top 16 teams battle for their place in the winner bracket semi-final. With only six teams making it through Sunday afternoon, the stakes were high and the games were tense.
Now, all of the group stage matches are finished and the games are becoming a lot more exciting, not that they weren’t already! With some of the best teams in the UK still competing, there still a lot of cheer for. Teams will be competing against each other for the Plantronics GameCom 780 headsets and tickets to the Insomnia 49 LAN event. The playoffs will be taking place tomorrow, with games beginning at 2PM.
After an intense group stage and a top-notch performance from all of the teams participating, only the best of the best managed to make their way into the elimination stage of the Insomnia 49 Online Qualifier.
Due to Valve releasing the schedule for The International, the dates and times for our online qualifier finals have been slightly changed.
The finals will now take place over both Saturday the 3rd of August and Sunday the 4th rather than exclusively the Sunday planned previously.
