As the China Dota2 Pro Cup Season 1 takes a break for a few days, another event will grace the Chinese region as the AMD SAPPHIRE OGA Dota PIT event is confirmed to begin tomorrow.
OGA Dota PIT Season 3: EU/CIS has just ended, with Team Secret once again dominating the region, but for the Chinese region, tomorrow we will see the event kick off. Confirmed a short time ago via their Twitter account, the AMD SAPPHITE OGA Dota PIT Season 3: China tournament begins tomorrow, with eight of the best teams from the region fighting for a total prize pool of $90,000. The tournament will see its group stage, which splits the eight teams into two groups of four, run on September 29th and 30th before many of the teams return to complete the playoff stage in the China Dota2 Pro Cup Season 1.
The list of teams competing at OGA Dota PIT Season 3: China is:
- Vici Gaming
- Sparking Arrow Gaming
- Royal Never Give Up
- Invictus Gaming
- Team Magma
- Team Aster
From the group stages, the top team of each group will move on to the second round of the upper bracket, while second and third place will each move on to the first round of upper bracket series – and the bottom spot in each group will be eliminated.
It will be interesting to see these teams in action again, as we witness their new rosters in action on a regional level and determine which are now the powerhouses of China.
