The tournaments are already adding up for Dota 2 which, as most already know, still rests in its' beta phase. The newest addition is The Premier League where 10 top teams from all over the planet will battle it out for 2 months starting January 4th.

The Premier League is created by Laurent 'Ange' Blum, sponsored by and covered by DotaCommentaries. And finally, we see some of the biggest teams of DotA - the WC3 edition, join in with some of Dota 2 teams with recent achievements. They will play together in a league system, where all face each other in best-of-2 matches. The teams will be awarded with points using the regular sports system; 3pts for a win, 1pt for draw and 0pt for a loss.
