On 6 June 2018, Chinese team, consisting of MSU students, took part in the International tournament on eSports Ugra Open (in DOTA 2 discipline) at the invitation of Ambassador of the Republic of Benin in the Russian Federation Gabriel Kochofa. This event was held in Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Okrug within the framework of the X IT Forum with the participation of the BRICS and SCO countries. The games were held in two days. Unfortunately, our team wasn’t able go to the ‘ship and remained in the top of ten teams notwithstanding the high level of the game. But despite the failure, this tournament is a good and rewarding experience for the team. In the future, we hope to return and show opponents how eSports develops at Moscow State University.
