First of all I would like to review The Premier League. Season 1 was kicked off 4 month ago and already finished. It was first league experience in Dota 2. It had $10k prizepool, 8 teams participated in it and solid schedule from the beginning. I can say, that some disadvantages were:
team replacements. As far as I remember, there were like 3 replacements. It was some mixes and chenese teams replacements, but bad thing that they were made during the tournament, not in the beginning. So some games were replayed.
postpones. It always happens in tournaments. But its always a disadvantage. Some defwins will decrease an audience, I know. And ppl become mad when their favourite team doesnt play, but eSport will never become professional thing (we all want it, I know) while orgs will let teams to postpone their games freely.
To advantages I can include full english coverage. I think, all games were streamed and you can find every VOD, so community should thank orgs for it.
So, first league experience in Dota 2 was pretty good and I hope their second season will be better: without replacements and with less postponed games.
In next episode I'll review the Starladder StarSeries season 1, right after it'll finish. Stay tuned.
