HistoryEdit

Mineski was founded on February 14, 2004 by a group of gamers and close friends in Manila, Philippines.[2] In 2011, Mineski was invited by Valve to compete with fifteen other teams in the first ever The International.[3][4]

Mineski expanded out of the Philippines in 2012, when it acquired a South Korean Dota roster. The team is no longer active.[5]

Mineski qualified for the 2015 Frankfurt Major by winning the Southeast Asia qualifier tournament.[6]

Mineski won the Philippine Qualifier for ESL One Manila in 2016.[7] Mineski also won the SEA Qualifier for the Manila Majors.

In 2017, Mineski came close to winning the first tournament of the DPC 2017-2018 Season by achieving second place in the third season of the StarLadder i-League Invitational, they went on to win the next tournament, PGL Open Bucharest.[8]

In 2018, Mineski won their first major tournament, Dota 2 Asia Championships 2018, with this achievement they also became the first team from the Southeast Asia region to win a major tournament.[9] With this win, they secured enough DPC points to secured their slot for The International 2018, though they finished in 9-12th place as well as The International 2019. With no major achievements in DPC 2018-2019 Season, the team disbanded.[10]
