The Bo3 format, match starts at 18:00 CEST

The group stage of EPICENTER XL is in full swing! The third rival of ua NAVI.GG.BET at this stage of the competition will be the Russian team ru The match starts on April 30 at 18:00 CEST. The format is best of 3.

First of all, let us introduce the opponents by saying they've got a direct invite to the LAN portion of EPICENTER XL. The validity of this invite is beyond doubt, because in the current competitive season ru steadily demonstrates the high level of the game not only in the native division but also beyond.

After The International 2017 the team confidently conquered regional qualifications, gradually gaining form, and already in late October of the same year won ESL One Hamburg. The "bears" did not stop there: as of today, they've taken the trophies at ESL One Katowice 2018, The Bucharest Major, Dota Summit 8, and also and good places at other Dota Pro Circuit events.

At the moment ru is the only team that is guaranteed an invite to the main tournament of the year in Vancouver. Despite this, the squad is in no hurry to relax and seeks to conquer as much of the iconic trophies as possible.

The performance of the "bears" in Moscow was already marked by two triumphant series - the team justifies its status as a favorite at the tournament. The battle with this enemy will not be easy, but we hope that the "yellow-black" will be able to surprise ru, as has been done many times before, and will give the fans a beautiful match! #gonavi
