Welcome everyone, to Dota 2, with CyberGamer and LPL. For 2019, we have announced almost more than 20k in prize money to be used exclusively for you players! The 2019 year will be open for any user across Australia and New Zealand to compete in. So let everyone know, now is the time!

We are aiming to bring some consistent competition for players of all skill levels from seasoned players through to the newbies, and to do that we have introduced 3 different divisions.

Challenger: $4k prize pool, 8 team invite division
Open: $1k prize pool, free to play, open for all players

In order to compete in Challenger and Amateur, players must have an active subscription during the season. Find it here

Our intent is to introduce another division for season 2 with the end goal of another division with LAN finals hosted in Auckland, live on TV.

Challenger Breakdown

1. Genuine Dota
2. Invited Team - TBA
3. Invited Team - TBA
4. 1st-5th FFYI
5. 1st-5th FFYI
6. 1st-5th FFYI
7. 1st-5th FFYI
8. 1st-5th FFYI
FFYI (Fight for your invite)
To determine the remaining teams invited to the top division, we will be holding a qualifier on February 3rd to determine who gets placed where. Matches will be Bo1 in a Double Elimination bracket with the top 4 invited to Challenger.

Once this initial season is over and have we a solid record of team results, we will introduce a much more stable relegation system rather than a mass FFYI. Teams should sign up for the open and amateur divisions in preparation for the season, and if you get invited to Challenger, you will be moved up there from the div you are currently in.
