Dota 2 servers caused a postpone to a play-in series at the Omega League: EU Immortal Division. The series between Team Liquid and 5men got postponed due to this trouble. The tournament professionals say that the series will now occur on Tuesday.
Omega League: EU Immortal Divison encountered a best-of-three series with the play-in stage following the tiebreaker. However, due to the server issues, the tournament organizers had to postpone the series. Both of the teams had to struggle to finish one full game of the series. Team Liquid and 5men joined the decider series to remain in the Immortal Division. The losing squad drops to the Divine Divison. In the first game, the play had to stop three times due to the servers. After several remakes, the tournament organizers, WePlay! Esports confirmed that the series is postponed. The new date for the decider series is the 1st of September 2020.
This gives a short time to both teams to rethink and come up with new strategies. It is sad that the game encountered three-time crash in a single match.
What is next?
The organizers and fans are hoping that Valve fixes the servers tomorrow. Omega League: EU Immortal Division is all set to kick off four epic series at the main stage tomorrow. The tournament will begin with both upper and lower bracket matches tomorrow. At the lower bracket, Omegalil will face Cyberium Seed and Team Unique will battle against Team Khan.
