After a big first day with plenty of surprises and upsets, the second day of Southeast Asia’s first premium Dota 2 tournament continued with tight series and thrilling matches as the final teams for the semifinals were found. With a total prize pool of US$250,000 on the line, every team was trying to bring their best to the stage in front of the Mall of Asia Arena’s huge audience.
