THE OWNER OF T1 IS CONSIDERING RELOCATING HIS DOTA 2 TEAM TO THE PHILIPPINES
Following the team’s loss against Boom Esports in the SEA DPC Grand Finals on Sunday, Feb. 13, T1 owner Joe Marsh revealed the aim of the South Korean-based esports organization to bring the entire team here in the Philippines and have the players play in one spot in a tweet.
According to reports, the squad was having Internet connectivity troubles throughout the series, which led to Karl “Karl” Jayme sitting out Game 4. Mc Nicholson “Lelouch-” Villanueva of Polaris Esports was then forced to fill in for Mc Nicholson “Lelouch-” Villanueva in the series’ final match, which Boom won by a score of 29-12 Despite this, T1 received a $25,000 award and 130 DPC points. Carlo “Kuku” Palad and Karl, both from the Philippines, and Kenny “Xepher” Deo and Karl, both from Indonesia, are T1 players.
Earning While Playing
One of the simplest ways to start making money with Dota 2 is to trade digital things. You can either sell stuff obtained from in-game crates or resell items purchased for a lower price.
Selling stuff obtained through games pays off handsomely only if you obtain something rare. Opening crates can provide you with stuff to sell, but there’s no guarantee you’ll acquire something worth more than the cost of opening it.
You can buy and resell products when the market swings if you’re ready to take a bigger risk. This demands a large initial investment, and markets can move dramatically over time. This strategy is only recommended for people who are well-versed in the community’s ideals and are willing to take risks.
