ESL One New York Day Zero 02.10.2015 Author // theDabca

As we approach ESL One New York 2015, it is time to take a look ahead. The teams have finally arrived in New York, ahead of fast approaching Hurricane Joaquin. Time to turn on the lights, set up the cameras, and watch as eight of the best Dota 2 teams compete for their share of $250,000.

CNEHOME will not be participating this weekend due to visa issues, so CNInvictus Gaming will fill in the Chinese Qualifier spot. As of now, the first round will be USEvil Geniuses vs RUVega Squadron, EUTeam Secret vs GBFnatic, CNCDEC vs USFire, and RUVirtus.pro vs CNiG.

Against the favorite and current Aegis holders, RUVega Squadron is looking up at a giant holding a sling. GBFnatic vs EUSecret looks to be the closest match-up in the first round with RUVP vs CNiG close behind. We have yet to see how USFire competes on an international level, and CNCDEC is still a powerhouse with no roster changes since finishing second at TI5.

Look for the qualifier teams to throw everything they have at the invited teams, with nothing to lose, and watch as the heavyweights hone their edge.

This tournament has great potential and I hope to see some great action! I will be reporting from Madison Square Garden daily with match recaps and all the interviews I can snag. Make sure to cheer on the underdogs, RUVega Squadron, as we play a David vs Goliath match against USEvil Geniuses Saturday at 20:00 EDT!
