Capitalist on the Insane First Round Matchups at the Dota 2 Boston Major

by Kevin Knocke

Dota 2 caster Austin 'Capitalist' Walsh joined Kevin Knocke on WWG Esports Today and discussed which matchups he is most excited for at this weekend's Boston Major. There's been a fair bit of parity in Dota lately, and this $3 million touranment is showcasing that parity already. Evil Geniuses lost twice in the group stages to Complexity which pit them in the playoff bracket against Wings Gaming, a matchup that's been seen in the Winners' Bracket Finals at major events before.

Also, Capitalist isn't so sure that LGD's matchup against their sister organization LFY is going to be a cakewalk either, and that LGD fans could be in for a surprise if LFY comes to play. He also has his eye on Digital Chaos who avoided having to play Wings Gaming in their group, but could play the role of spoiler in the days to come. Capitalist thinks DC is here to play and that they're really prepared for this event.

The Boston Major continues this weekend on their Twitch channel with $1 million up top for first place. This marks the first major of the 2016-2017 Dota 2 season.
