The Tunisian squad participated in the DOTA 2 competition in the 14th World Championship, but they didn’t make it through to try another campaign. Their elimination follows a series of fellow African teams that were also eliminated from the IeSF championship in Bali.
Tunisia faced a lot of opposition from other teams, but they didn’t stand a chance against them. The team of Anaam Allah Nafti (KMA), Houssemeddine Rouini (LØRKITEZ), Kousay Mhamdi (Kyoto), Khalil Saadellaoui (Hayaku) and Mohamed Farouk Bejaoui (STIMPER) was unlucky in their quest to protect their ancient sites and advance.
Dota 2 is one of the games being used for the championship. Being a multiplayer online battle arena video game, the title by Valve is among the selected titles being used for the championship. In order to compete, two teams of five players must attempt to destroy a substantial structure defended by the opposing team, known as the “Ancient,” while simultaneously defending their own.
Some people question whether African teams can compete on the world stage. The elimination of Tunisia and Ghana early in the Championship means we’ll have to see if the teams who made it this far are actually very good or if they were lucky.
Africa has a lot of challenges to overcome if it wants to compete in international tournaments. One of the biggest is the lack of servers or quality-trained athletes from different countries on the continent. It’s hard to say if Africa can make it all the way to the finals and possibly win future tournaments.
