We've seen some great Dota 2 matches in the European/CIS online league, WePlay! Pushka. There have been some upsets, great plays, and some fantastic production. Now, the playoffs are about to kick off, running from 8th to 12th May 2020.
Let's first take a look at the WePlay! Pushka group stage results, followed by the playoffs schedule.
WePlay! Pushka League group stage results
The group stage for Division 1 of the WePlay! Pushka League season 1 has been fantastic, delivering great matches, and some serious upsets. Arguably the biggest upset happened in Group A, where both OG and OG.Seed has been eliminated.
Yes, we saw an OG vs OG.Seed slugfest, with OG.Seed surprisingly coming out on top. Team Secret leads the pack in Group A, followed by Alliance, while in Group B, Hellraisers have secured a first-place finish.
With only the top four teams of each group advancing to the playoffs, and the bottom three being eliminated, the biggest upset has to be OG, OG.Seed and Nigma not making it to the playoffs from Group A. In Group B, both VP squads made it to the playoffs, with FlyToMoon Team Spirit, and B8, getting eliminated.
