How many of our fans have played DotA 1? How many of you remember the epic load screens during the days of WC3 DotA? How many of you remember the screen that you stared at after the starting countdown while waiting for the game to load?
For all you newbies, these artwork were drawn by the legendary Kunkka. No, not the Admiral. This Kunkka, a fellow Singaporean from Imaginary Friends Studios. So one day, Kunkka randomly drops us a message on Skype.
What heroes are you Zenith guys famous for?
Obviously, it was an easy choice for most of them. SF/QOP on Yamateh, Invoker/Naga on iceiceice, Chen/Enchant on xFreedom, Tinker/Tide/Storm on xy- and Sandking/Rubick on Ice. You get the idea right?
A week later, Kunkka drops us another message on Skype.
Heya, I wanted to do something for Team Zenith, seeing how I’m Singaporean and you guys are a Singaporean team. I’d like to do something to show support for the team at The International 3! TADAH!
And THIS is what he sent us. A Zenith compendium of heroes.
And we would like to share this with our fans. If you wouldn’t mind the above graphic adorning your desktop, then feel free to download it as your wallpaper. All of us here at Team Zenith love what Kunkka has done for us – it truly is a work of art isn’t it?
Before you think we’re done, we’d like to let you know that we’ll be printing this on T-shirts in limited quantities to fans who wish to purchase them. We will definitely be printing a set for the team to wear to Seattle and we’re considering bringing up some to Seattle for any American friends that we might have. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Please give us a holler in the comments section if you are interested in getting one to show your support for Zenith at The Internationals this year. Do let us know where you’re from as well. And because our players do not draw any form of salary, all proceeds will go towards funding our supply of fresh oysters and sea bass from cafes near the Benaroya Hall this year.
Sneak peeks for you.
Indicative price is between SGD30-35.
