msioverdrive-grandfinal-poster-270.jpgMSI Phillipines is hosting their finals of their 200,000 PHP (€~3,800 EUR) DotA tournament MSI Overdrive next weekend, July 6-8. The 4/F Annex Event Area will be the venue for the 30 teams taking part.

The tournament will feature internationally top ranked teams like Mineski, MSI EvoGT, Pacific.Revitalize, Izone^125, Badburn and Dreamz Ledion SS. Have you followed the GIGABYTE Esport Tournament you have surely heard of them and seen the top notch performance by the Filipino sides.

The grand final winner will walk home with a 75,000 PHP (~€1,425 EUR) check as well as a SteelSeries QcK MASS Gank Edition mousepad. The runner-up will have to settle with 25,000 PHP (~€475 EUR).

The champion of each of the open qualifiers will be getting the first ten seeds, and the runner-ups of the six open qualifiers will get the first 16 seeds in the 32-team single elimination tournament.

When teams reach the quarter finals, they will be split up in two groups of four in which the top two will advance to a playoff.

As a special all-star game, the ten players with the most likes in this photo album will form two teams. The two with the highest number of votes will be the captains of the two teams and will draft their team mates among the pool of the other 8 "all-stars". The prize for that all-star game is a 5,000 PHP (~€95 EUR) and five SteelSeries Sensei mice.
