Welcome everyone to Season 3 of Dota 2, with LPL!

We had an extremely successful Dota 2 season in Season 2 and we are thrilled to bring you another season of Dota 2! Many congratulations to the winners of 2019 Season 2 Dota 2 teams. We hope to see all teams return for another season. As stated in our Season 2 announcement, our intent is to introduce a pathway for the Dota 2 community, so the teams and players can be broken up into different skill groups, to provide fair games against equal opponents, while providing a way to climb those divisions until you reach the top.

Signs up will be available for those residing in Australia and New Zealand.

Season 3 of Dota 2 will commence on August 13th 2019 & will conclude October 9th 2019.


Divisions

All divisions will be open for any users residing in Australia or New Zealand to compete in.

Open: Top three teams will win a free month sub, free for all players to join!
Amateur: $800, subscription required.
Challenger: $1,000, subscription required, invite only Division.
Pro: $2,500, subscription required, invite only Division.

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


Format


Due to feedback received from Season 2, all games during the regular play will be a Best of 2! Playoffs will be a Best of 3. The default tiebreaker is Head to Head. If the tie is not broken using Head to Head, a Best of One single round robin will be played with the tied teams. If this still does not break the tie, admins may declare to use time rating for the tiebreaker rounds played. For avoidance of doubt, time rating rules will be explained in the rules here.

Open and Amateur Divisions will be an elo based ladder, with 3 matches assigned per 12 days. Teams are required to update their available match times weekly and the website will auto-assign teams to play against each other. The top 4 teams with the highest elo by the end of the regular play will move to Playoffs.

The Challenger Division will be a round robin format and have matches scheduled each Wednesday night at 7PM AEST. The top 4 teams with the highest amount of wins by the end of regular play will move to Playoffs.

The PRO Division will be a round robin format and have matches scheduled each Tuesday nights at 7PM AEST. The top 4 teams with the highest amount of wins by the end of regular play will move to Playoffs. Unfortunately due to unforeseen circumstances, the PRO Division will not have a LAN and will be only be played online.

Challenger and PRO Division teams may only reschedule matches with a legitimate reason provided to an administrator, and may only be done twice within the regular season, any further reschedule requests will become forfeits. To reschedule, an administrator must give you permission, and each request will be decided on a case by case basis.

Relegations/Promotions

To determine the remaining teams invited to the higher division, we will be holding an closed qualifier on 1 August through until 8 August to determine who gets placed where. Matches will be Bo1 in a Double Elimination bracket with the top places being invited to the higher Division. Please be aware this is NOT AN ODC (One Day Cup). Matches will start on the Thursday and be scheduled by the teams when they can both find time until the following Thursday, where remaining matches will be forced to be played from 7PM on the 2nd Thursday.

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.

Relegations will be set up Thursday 1 August.
