With the world battling to flatten the curve of COVID-19 pandemic, Dota Pit is coming up with another tournament online.
The organizers, which aimed to keep the Esports fans entertained as there are restrictions across many countries of the world due to the coronavirus pandemic has now added a new online event to its calendar.
According to reports, the Dota 2 online tournament will see the best teams in the European and CIS scenes slug it out against each other.
Headlining the competition are top teams like OG, Team Secret, and Virtus Pro. With such big names, it is going to be another memorable moment for the fans as they can’t wait to witness what could be said to be Dota PIT’s third online Major.
According to the organizers, the competition commences next tomorrow, May 13, with ten teams to jostle for their share of $150,000 prize money.
The tournament will start with a group stage that consists of two groups of five. The teams that fail to live up to expectations will find themselves at the bottom team of the table and will be sent packing from the event.
For the playoffs, there will be a standard double-elimination bracket involving the remaining eight teams, which holds between May 21 and 23 while the winner takes home $62,000.
Looking at the draws, Group B seems to be a group of death as Team Secret, VP will square up against each other for bragging rights. Team Secret will have to overcome an improved Team Liquid roster and the new Ninjas in Pyjamas squad.
It won’t be a roller coaster for Team Spirit as well as competing against those teams. So, we all can’t wait to see who will stay till the end and those that will be sent packing earlier than expected.
In group A, however, Alliance is tipped as favorite. Others in the group are OG, which will be looking to bounce back from a disappointing early exit from WePlay! Pushka League, Natus Vincere, HellRaisers, and Vikin.gg.
The group may look easy as speculated, but you don’t know if the underdogs will bring in their A-games and shock the big boys again as the battle for playoff spots will be high.
