Starting today, the Dota 2 EPIC League season 2 games will be streamed from a new thematic studio — RuHub saloon in the Wild West! In addition to thorny cacti, powder barrels, a real buffalo skull and other themed decorations, casters in western costumes await the audience.
The first match in this setting will be held between the new Virtus.pro roster and the team of Alexey “Solo” Berezin — Just Error. “This city has become too small for the two of them,” and today at 16:00 on Dota 2 RuHub we will know whose revolver shoots just as straight.
Epic Esports Events: “This time we decided to move away from the usual themes for Dota 2 tournaments and turned to the Wild West.
