Overview[edit]

The Eastern European Dota 2 scene will be busy with tough clashes, this time with teams battling for $60,000 in Excellent Moscow Cup 2. 12 top teams from Europe alongside 4 from China will compete to get their spot in LAN finals that will be held in Forum Hall, Moscow.

Format[edit]

  • Every team in the Europe division plays each other twice in a round-robin format.
  • A 2-0 result is worth 3 points, 1-1 is worth one point.
  • Top 3 European teams and the top Chinese team qualify for LAN finals.
  • In case of a two-way tie, the team winning the game between those teams in question advances.
  • In case of a tie involving more than 2 teams, additional games are played to determine rankings.

Prize Pool[edit]

The base prize pool is $60,000. In addition, 25% of every purchase of the in-game bundle will go to the prize pool.
As of October 17, 2014, the prize pool was $75,575.
