TI5 champions reunite for Arkosh Gaming’s first Sacrificial Cup
CMD368 – Jake “SirActionSlacks” Kanner set himself for a challenge that is perhaps harder than hosting The International. He is determined to save the North American Dota 2 scene from vanishing and the first step in doing so was to create an NA squad which he hopes can reignite the fans’ passion.
Arkosh Gaming was announced at the end of October, but the roster is still kept secret. The five players were introduced under aliases and besides the fact that they are led by someone considered The G.O.A.T, not much else is known. However, before they will actually join the official tournaments, Arkosh Gaming will play every Tuesday in SACRIFICIAL CUP, an event created by them, which is basically a show-match.

The first SACRIFICIAL CUP was announced for this coming Tuesday, November 24 at 17:00 GMT and it will bring a big surprise to the fans around the world. Three of the TI5 champions will reunite for this special event to play against Arkosh Gaming. Peter “ppd” Dager, Clinton “Fear” Loomis and Kurtis “Aui_2000” Ling, TI5 champions with Evil Geniuses in 2015, will be joined by Troels “syndereN” Nielsen and Sheepsticked in their challenge of taking down the mysterious roster of Arkosh Gaming.
According to Slacks, the match should be regarded as a “casted scrim”, however, this particular practice game will have one of the most beloved casting duos to bring the action to the fans. Owen “ODPixel” Davies and Ioannis “Fogged” Loucas will commentate the very first SACRIFICIAL CUP match on Tuesday when, possibly, fans will learn a bit more about the Arkosh Gaming roster.
