On their way to the winners final SK.DotA defeated such teams as Team Shakens, The Elder Gods and Mom equals Toilet. Wolker Gaming managed to be better than Detachment, Avid Gaming and Check Six.
In the winners final, which had two load-games, SK.DotA outplayed Wolker Gaming in three games. SK|ARS-ART took part only in the first one because he had to leave the club from which he was playing. However, SK.DotA lost that first game, but won two remaining ones without the help of SK|ARS-ART.
SK|tompa gave us a very optimistic comment:
"We are very delighted to reach this far into the tournament but it was somehow kind of expected after both MeetYourMakers and VP got out of the tournament and seeing Wolker Gaming as our hardest opponent I think we have a good shot now at winning the whole Pride. Game1 didn't really go as planned but we somehow manage to make up for our mistakes in both game2 and 3!"
This tournament was the scene for many relatively unknown teams to show their best - Mom equals Toilet, Storm Games Clan and many others. Right now, team Storm Games Clan has a chance to fight for the Pride - they are meeting Wolker Gaming in the loser brackets final. They have also cemented top 3.
The new member of Sk.DotA, Rwar speaks about the loser final:
"The mentioned two teams - Wolker Gaming and Storm Games Clan are in a good shape and they have very similar playing styles since Enigma joined Storm Games Clan. I'd say 60% chance of winning for Wolker Gaming, good luck both teams!"

I am still striving to prove that it doesn't matter which country a man is from to be good.
I am still believing that it's all about skills and respect.
Wish me luck ;)
