PDCup 10 came to a conclusion late last night – crowning Prodota Gaming the champions. This is the third consecutive PDCup title for Prodota Gaming – securing PDCup 8, 9 and now 10 since the end of July. The team bested Imperial 3:1 in the Grand Finals.

ProDota Gaming claimed their third consecutive PDCup title. Their victory over Imperial 3:1 gave them their third championship in a row for the series events.
ProDota worked their way to the Grand Finals through the upper brackets. Always dropping one game each series, they seemed to manage to stay on top after besting their opponents – Elements Pro Gaming, IKEA, Imperial, and FRIENDS 2:1.
Imperial, as expected, had started out strong – taking down mYinsanity and then wiping through LVLUP before being dropped to the lower brackets by Prodota Gaming. In the lower brackets they survived the best-of-one series against IKEA and then swept through BrooDMotherS and FRIENDS 2:0 to challenge Prodota Gaming again.
Armed with a one game advantage from the upper brackets, Prodota Gaming took the first game after over an hour of play ending with an incredible base race. In a remarkable comeback in game 2, Imperial claimed a quick and decisive victory but then dropped the third match following a cheeky Axe pick on midlane for Prodota Gaming.
The victory is sweet for the team as only days ago Prodota Gaming were overshadowed by Imperial in both the Dota 2 Offence and Elements Cup 2 Grand Finals to take the second place position.
Prodota Gaming has participated in the monthly competitions since the beginning. They seized their first championship title in PD Cup 3, followed by a second place finish in PD Cup 4.
The organization has recently branched off of their original CIS project and switched gears into being a European extension. Since transitioning into a full European team, Prodota Gaming has been climbing their way back to success.
At the end of June, just in time for the TI6 open qualifiers Prodota Gaming underwent a full overhaul of their roster to be centered around carry player Ylli “Garter” Ramadani. Several roster changes resulted in recruiting Linus “Kefka” Bleckert and Malthe “Biver” Winther at the end of July. Alexandru “ComeWithMe” Craciunescu and Jure “Pingvincek” Plešej stepped in for the squad two weeks later and the squad has enjoyed considerable success.
After much uncertainty surrounding the upcoming Fall Major 2016 season, the Prodota Gaming roster was secured. When Armand “bOne7” Pittner missed the drop deadline by mere hours ComeWithMe had been locked into Kaipi, instead of ProDota Gaming. Valve took action and settled team registration issues. The team was able to finalize their roster officially with their core lineup of players.
