Seoul Dynasty schedule

Preseason

Seoul Dynasty played three matches in preseason, and they won all three, only dropping a couple of maps all that time. 4-0 over Shanghai Dragons put paid to our wonderings about the strength of the Chinese region versus Korea, while beating Houston was expected, taking New York down 3-1 shows that even the other all-Korean squads will struggle versus the Dynasty. In a preseason of upsets, Dynasty winning without too much of a sweat was the least surprising result of the tournament.

Season One - Stage One

Stage one title matches will be that final weekend on Sunday, February 9 at 10:00 or 12:00 KST - likely the later slot as that is the purpose of the Pacific Division. The Dynasty are very likely to be part of these proceedings.
