Esports News – The year 2019 is about to come to an end, but the spirit of the Dota 2 competitive scene knows no rest. ONE Esports Dota 2 World Pro Invitational Singapore hosts a $500,000 tournament next week to pit the best Dota 2 teams against each other. From December 17 to 22, we’ll see 12 of the world’s best teams at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.
The Dota 2 tournament is the first major LAN set in the 7.23 patch series and organized by ONE Esports, so players have to master the Outlanders update. One ESPORTS is the subsidiary organization of Singapore-based MMA promotion ONE Championship. The company collaborates with Romanian-based event company PGL to feature top casting talents who will moderate the event.
The World Pro Invitational follows the format of Dota 2 Pro Circuit major tournaments. All players first compete in a round-robin group stage. The bottom two will be eliminated from their respective groups, then the remaining teams proceeds to the eight-team, double-elimination playoffs. The 2 teams who emerge victorious from a series of non-stop tournaments in the upper and lower brackets face each other in the grand finals.
Tickets for the event are now on sale. Fans can expect special Dota 2 merchandise and meet-and-greet sessions with their favorite pro teams at the Singapore Indoor Stadium. After the World Pro Invitational, ONE Esports is expected to widen the Southeast Asian esports scene. The next major non-DPC, LAN tournament under the company takes place in Jakarta, Indonesia.
The World Pro Invitational may not be part of the latest DPC season, but some of the best Dota 2 teams in the world wouldn’t want to miss their share of the $500,000 prize pool and a chance to dominate the Southeast Asian scene. Most of the participants from the recent The International 9 are present. Specifically, fans have high hopes for TNC Predator, the team leading the global rankings this month. TNC won the recent ESL One Hamburg 2019 and MDL Chengdu Major.
