Overview[edit]

The Dota 2 Champions League is a cooperation between Natus Vincere and Virtus.Pro in which some of the worlds best teams fight for a prize pool of over $50,000.

Prize Pool[edit]

The sponsored prize pool was set at $50,000 but an additional $2.50 for each Dota 2 Champion's League Bundle sold and 10% of every set sold will be added to the prize pool. In addition, all expenses to travel to the LAN finals will be paid by D2CL.
At the end of the tournament, the prize pool was $79,504.[1]

Format[edit]

Four teams qualify for the LAN Finals, three from Europe and one from China.

Europe[edit]

  • Eight teams compete in a Round Robin group stage.
    • The top team from the group stage advances directly to LAN finals.
    • The next four placing teams compete in an online playoff to determine two further teams that advance to LAN Finals. [2]

China[edit]

  • Eight teams compete in a Round Robin group stage.
    • The top four teams from the group stage then compete in a double elimination bracket.
    • The winner of this bracket advances to the LAN finals.

  • Due to HellRaisers not being able to have visas to travel to the location of the offline phase of the tournament, they were not able to participate in the online playoffs and were replaced by Balkan Bears.[5] Alliance, who had finished the league in a higher place than Balkan Bears, were not ready for this situation.[5]
