Overview[edit]

After organizing multiple events in StarCraft II, Red Bull is hosting their first Dota 2 tournament under their Battle Grounds brand. 20 invited teams compete in the online group stage. The top five teams move on to the playoffs held in Santa Monica, CA, at the Red Bull Esports Studio. The top two teams will face off in a best of five grand finals at Warfield Theatre in San Francisco, CA, on May 10.

Format[edit]

Group Stage:

  • 20 invited teams in five regional groups of four teams each: Europe, Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), America, Southeast Asia (SEA) and China
  • Each group is played in double-elimination bracket format
  • The winning team of each group advance to the playoffs

Group Stage is played online from April 6 to April 28.

Playoffs:

  • Five teams who each start with three lives.
  • In the order of their seeding, each team choose in which order they will challenge another one in a best of one match.
