Last August 19, Sunday, the competitive DotA storm ran through the southern country anew. This time around, not just three, but four new teams came out as conquerors in their respective areas, as the usual southern triumvirate of MI Cebu, MI Dipolog, and MI CDO were joined by the recently opened and first Mineski Infinity Shop in provintial Luzon, MI Tuguegarao, in the GIGABYE Mineski Pro-Gaming League 4-7. 

Add to this the fact that the season is rapidly closing and thay each and every point a team manages to secure is vital for the season's ladder rankings, and we've got ourselves a pretty hyped up event. Who are these victorious few? Read on below to find out!
