Vici Gaming and EHOME will face each other in Week 4 of the DPL-CDA Dota 2 league. The DPL-CDA League features eight CDA teams and two teams from the promotion league. The tournament has a ¥500,000 (approx. $70,327.44 USD) prize pool and features some of the best Chinese teams in action. Teams get an additional ¥4,500 (approx. $632.95 USD) per win while the loser of the match gets ¥500 (approx. $70.33 USD).
EHOME is currently sitting 7-0 at the top of the DPL-CDA Season 1 tournament leaderboard. With a roster featuring Liu "Sylar" Jiajun and Zhang "Faith_bian" Ruida, EHOME has a lot of experience between its players. They have dominated their opponents in the league with ease. Since every win secures an additional payout for the winning team, they still have strong incentive to win this match.
Vici Gaming is one of the top Chinese Dota 2 teams, but the players have been inconsistent in their recent matches. Vici Gaming won 2-0 against Invictus Gaming during the DPL-CDA; but they also lost 0-2 to that same team in their next match, this time for the China Dota 2 Professional League Season 2.
EHOME is on a roll. They have been dominating the tournament, and I see no reason why they can't win this bout with the under-performing Vici Gaming. Getting them at plus money is a gift due to the inconsistency of their opponent.
