A recap of the second tour of Dota 2 DPC matches in the SEA region.

Polaris Esports Vs Nigma Galaxy SEA
Polaris had the upper hand in the first match and with their soaring net worth, Nigma couldn’t do much to come back. Both Medusa and Legion Commander from Polaris were tough to deal with for Nigma. As we saw them dishing out tons of damage, Polaris won the first match 11-29 in about 42 minutes.
