Chinese high school students are probably all familiar with the academic power rankings of the country's universities; everybody wants to get into a top ten school like Peking University or Tsinghua. But serious gamers might also want to consider another set of university rankings: China's top universities in terms of competitive DOTA playing.

The rankings are apparently calculated based on the scores of individual students, and I suspect it's not an extremely precise system, but even so, it's interesting that some of China's most elite academic schools are also the best schools at DOTA. I guess when you work hard, you play hard too! It's also worth noting that Wuhan has two schools in the top six (though having once visited Wuhan, I can't say I'm surprised students there prefer to stay indoors playing computer games).
