Bucharest Minor 2019: Teams, Format, Schedule - Tipify

Esports News – The 2019 season of the Dota 2 Pro Circuit starts with the Bucharest Minor from January 9-13. It will see eight professional players fighting for a share of the $300,000 prize pool and the event’s corresponding 500 DPC points. The champion of this season gets a spot in the Chongqing Major, while all teams who can get a share of the DPC points take another step forward to The International 9.

Tournament format

The event will culminate at Bucharest Romania. The 8 teams are qualified through the regional qualifiers. There are two teams each from Europe and China and one team each from North America, CIS, Southeast Asia, and South America.

All the participants are divided into two groups of four teams each to compete in the group stage. They will face a double-elimination bracket. The top two teams from each group advance to the upper bracket of the playoffs, while the bottom two teams advance to the lower brackets. All the games are in BO3 format, while the playoffs feature a double-elimination format once again. All games also follow a BO3 format, except for the grand finals which utilize a BO5 format.
