First Minor of the new Dota Pro Circuit season is less than 10 days away. The qualifier campaign is over, a replacement for Team Liquid was found, the only announcement left to be made was about the event storytellers.
After he had to skip DreamLeague Season 9 so he can host a PUBG event that took place almost at the same time this past spring, Jake “SirActionSlacks” Kanner, although again with his hands full with Artifact this time around, will be present at the DreamLeague Season 10 desk. He and Jorien “Sheever” van der Heijden will be the event hosts. The usual suspects, Owen “ODPixel” Davies, and Ioannis “Fogged” Loucas will be in Sweden once again to provide the commentary for the first Minor of the season and just like the previous season, when they gave a chance to a new voice to be heard, inviting Darren “KillerPigeon” Elmy, DreamLeague will now welcome Michelle “Moxxi” Song for the first time into the DreamHack Studios
Moxxi did a fair amount of open qualifiers grinding in the past year and made her international LAN debut earlier this week when she was invited to commentate the first edition of WSOE, held in Las Vegas.
“I’ve got a long way to go but I’m dedicated and motivated to improve with every game I cast” she tweeted at the end of WSOE, and DreamLeague Season 10 Minor presented her the perfect opportunity to do just that.
On the analysis duties, DreamLeague assigned the relentless Kyle Freedman, joined by Henrik “AdmiralBulldog” Ahnberg, who will surely make a very interesting addition to the talent list.
Look at all these godly people coming to Stockholm 😍@SheeverGaming, @SirActionSlacks, @ODPixel, @Foggeddota, @AdmiralBulldog, @MoxxiCasts, @keepingitKyle https://t.co/NG59u9UAUg
