Mythic Gaming Dota 2 has arrived
We are so excited to announce that Mythic Gaming has acquired their first Defense of the Ancients 2 (Dota 2) squad to compete under our banner for the 2016 competitive season. The signing of our Dota 2 team officially launches our E-Sports division and we would like to take this opportunity to welcome them to the #MythicFAMILY.
mythic Dota 2 was handpicked by Reggie (Mr_PoTaToE_HeAD) Mogorosi from quite a number of potential players, however the five confirmed core players with us today— Mr_PoTaToE_HeAD, LorD_SaVaGe, Kuhnchun, Andreezy and FraCtur3~ and the substitutes triStaR and FauLty_TOasTer—possessed the key ingredients that we believe were most important - a passion to improve, overlapping goals and the capabilities required to make a breakthrough within the local Dota 2 scene and participation in the international Dota 2 scene.
Previously known as MaD Hatters BƝB!st , the team caught our eye with their recent 4th place finish in The National Dota 2 Tournament (Perseus League) as well as an impressive standing in the First Division of the Telkom Digital Gaming League (DGL). The team showcased both their ability and their potential after adding the Underwater Squad power duo ahead of The Perseus League National Dota 2 Tournament; Andrew "Andreezy" Hung and Timothy "Kuhnchun" Kuhn to their roster.
With their new roster the team is determined to enhance their impact within the local Dota 2 scene and achieve their primary objective of topping their First Division Group and qualifying for the Premier Division in 2016.
We would like to officially introduce the Dota 2 squad who will be representing Mythic Gaming for the 2016 season:
▪ Reggie "Mr_PoTaToE_HeAD" Mogorosi (Captain)
▪ Mark "LorD_SaVaGe" Venter
▪ Timothy "Kuhnchun" Kuhn
▪ Andrew "Andreezy" Hung
▪ Stefan "FraCtur3~" Van Dyk
▪ Quewin "triStaR" Bridger (Sub)
▪ Stewart "FauLty_TOasTer" Bailie (Sub)
Reggie "Mr_PoTaToE_HeAD" Mogorosi, the Dota 2 Captain, took the time to talk a bit about the Dota 2 team, their plans for the future and what they would like to achieve, which you can read below.
"Firstly I would like to start of with the following quote by Henry Ford: "Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success." With the local Dota 2 scene being introduced to more leagues, tournaments and players we are looking forward to facing the obsticles that await us squaring off against many up-and-coming teams as well as the titans that have always dominated to scene.
Our focus is to establish ourselves within the top divisions and maintain a high level of competitiveness throughout. Together with all our individual experience within the game and the backing of Mythic Gaming we are amped to do achieve great things.
Finally I would like to send a shout-out to the Mythic Gaming organisation for believing in our vision and I'm really excited for the future with you guys.
Onwards and up :D GG" – Reggie "Mr_PoTaToE_HeAD" Mogorosi
