A spooky, mid-week tournament with the grand finals taking place just two days before the Los Angeles Major was announced by the LA based studio Beyond the Summit last night.
Dota Summit 12 will run right in between the StarLadder ImbaTV Minor and the ESL One Los Angeles Major, starting Tuesday, March 10 and ending on Friday, March 13th. Six teams will be present in the BTS studio next week to fight for a share of the $150,000 prize pool.
With the event placed so close to the two DPC tournaments, it’s unlikely to see any of the Minor participating teams making it to this one as well, but for the Major teams Dota Summit 12 might be one of the best opportunities to test themselves before hitting the Major. It will be interesting to see if the likes of OG, Team Secret or Evil Geniuses will be up to show some of their drafting ideas before the LA Major, or if this event is more appealing to those that haven’t made it to this round of Dota Pro Circuit tournaments. Teams such Nigma, Liquid, TNC, the new EE stack which is to be announced sometime this week, Aggressive Mode, are all good candidates for a non DPC tournament.
Anyways, with the event set to start next Tuesday, the invitations list should come out soon, so stay tuned!
