GEST Challenge Season 1 March
Gigabyte E-Sports Tournament Dota 2 is a South East Asian tournament organized by DotaTalk. The first 2013 GEST Challenge was hosted in March 2013 by DotaTalk following GEST 2012. The original idea was that the winners of two GEST tournaments would be invited to play against two Chinese tournaments. However, due to scheduling conflicts, this iteration of the Challenge had to be held earlier, and the March tournament for GEST has not yet begun. Because of this, Neolution.Orange got invited. The other teams are MUFC for winning the February tournament, and the Chinese teams are LGD.int and Vici Gaming.
The total prize pool for the event is set to $1,500.

- All matches up until the finals are Bo3.
- Grand Finals are played in Bo5 format, with the team from the winners bracket having a 1 game advantage.
