Welcome everyone, to Dota 2, with LPL. As you may have already seen here we are fast tracking our road map, and bringing you our Dota 2 Pro division a season earlier! With TV broadcasts, $6k prize pool and a LAN finals, we have 3 spots free that you can fight for in an open qualifier. Check it out here:

Pro: $8k prize pool, 6 team invite division
Challenger: $2k prize pool, 8 team invite division
Amateur: $1k prize pool, open for all players

Total: $11k prize pool

In order to compete in all divisions, players must have an active subscription during the season. Find it here

Our intent is to introduce a pathway for the Dota 2 community, so the teams and players can be broken up in to different skill groups, to provide fair games against equal opponents, while providing a way to climb those divisions until you reach the top.

Challenger Breakdown
1. Shutdown (TBC)
2. Infinity Gaming
3. Raging Apu
4. Australian Gaming Network
5. 1st-4th FFYI
6. 1st-4th FFYI
7. 1st-4th FFYI
8. 1st-4th FFYI
FFYI (Fight for your invite)
To determine the remaining teams invited to the top division, we will be holding an open qualifier on May 20th to determine who gets placed where. Matches will be Bo1 in a Double Elimination bracket with the top 8 invited to Challenger. Please be aware this is NOT AN ODC. Matches will start on the Monday and be scheduled by the teams when they can both find time until the Sunday, where remaining matches will be forced to be played from 7pm on the Sunday.

Once this 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 amateur divisions in preparation for the season, and if you get invited to Challenger or Pro, you will be moved up there from the division you are currently in.
