StarLadder and ImbaTV will organize the last Minor tournament in the 2018-2019 Dota Pro Circuit. This will be the only Minor from the entire season that grants two tickets to the Major held right after it and marks the very last chance for the teams to grab a seat at Valve’s final Major event before The International 2019.
StarLadder ImbaTV Dota 2 Minor will take place in June at the Kiev Cybersport Arena from Kiev, Ukraine from 12th to 16th with eight teams fighting for a share of the $300,000 prize pool and two tickets for EPICENTER Major.
The Major regional qualifiers just started yesterday, May 15 and while they are set to be over in the next couple of days, the SL-ImbaTV Minor open qualifiers will commence this coming Sunday, on May 19 in all six regions. Two teams per region will advance into the Minor closed regional qualifiers and those who want to put their skill at test can already sign up for the open brackets.
Open qualifiers schedule and registration links:
Minor closed regional qualifiers will unfold May 21st to May 25th with one team from each region making it to the SL Imba TV Minor LAN portion of the tournament, except for Europe and China that will be granted two qualifier slots.
Dota 2 community should expect a new patch to be released soon after the Minor qualifiers conclude.
