Welcome Dota 2 players and fans! We’re excited to announce our official sponsorship of Midas Mode, a 10-day, eight-team tournament put on by indie game broadcasting agency Moonduck Studios. Like most Moonduck tournaments, Midas Mode is a little unconventional. Each team will be allotted a set amount of currency (Moonbucks), which they will use to draft heroes, ban heroes, pause games, and pick sides. Teams must use their Moonbucks wisely so as not to spend too much up front and exhaust their firepower. Another interesting element? Teams can earn more Moonbucks by completing user-submitted challenges from Reddit, 10 of which will be chosen each day by the golden hand, Mr. Midas himself. So, where does Massdrop fit in all of this, you ask? See below for more details.
Note: This is a preorder. Because we still have to secure a spot in the production line, these limited-edition keycaps will not be ready to ship until January. Quantities will be limited to 900.
To commemorate the tournament, we’re making a limited-edition set of four novelty keycaps that you’ll only find here. The first keycap depicts Mr. Midas: the boisterous, googly-eyed golden hand at the head of the tournament. The second cap is the Moonduck logo, showing a giant hippo on top of the world. Third is the Midas Mode tournament logo, styled in old-fashioned red font. Last—and certainly not least—is the gaudy, gold money sign representing the precious Moonbucks that govern tournament play. Made from dye-subbed PBT (the golden keycap is made from gold-plated zinc), the keycaps are sculpted in OEM profile and compatible with Cherry MX switches and clones.
All orders will be shipped by Massdrop.
Estimated ship date is Jan 31, 2018 PT.
After the drop ends, payment will be collected. To deliver the best value to the group the request will then be submitted to the vendor up front, making all sales final. Be sure to check the discussion page for updates.
