ESL One Thailand 2020 kicks off in a little over two days with its Americas event being the first on the calendar and with that, the schedule and format for the tournament has been confirmed.
Over the past few weeks, the open and closed qualifiers for ESL One Thailand 2020: Americas have been played and come to an end, with two teams making their way into the main event. On August 8th, 2020, the group stage for the event kicks off as the eight teams begin their nearly month-long journey to determine the Americas champion. With that, ESL One have confirmed the schedule for the event, as we find out which teams will face off against one another this coming weekend.
ESL One Thailand 2020: Americas’ group stage will see all eight teams participating in a round robin filled with what is set to be some amazing best-of-three Dota 2 action. For the opening day, we will see the following series:
- CR4ZY versus Thunder Predator
- business associates versus Infamous
The remaining four teams will also see action this weekend as they have their opening series on August 9th. The tournament is set to have a total of seven “matchdays”, each of which will feature four series of Dota 2, as the teams fight to claim their portion of the $65,000 prize pool and to be crowned champions of ESL One Thailand 2020: Americas.
With teams such as beastcoast, Quincy Crew, CR4ZY and business associates all included in the eight team event – plus a chance for Gorillaz-Pride to cause some huge upsets after coming through the open qualifier, ESL One Thailand 2020: Americas is sure to be an event of epic proportions. And as it leads us through to the Asia leg of the tournament, we’re ready for some great North and South American Dota 2.
