PMS.Asterisk, one of the favorites

 

16 teams will be divided into four groups, wherein each team will face every other team on its group once. All games will be best-of-one. The top two teams in the group stage will advance into the single-elimination playoffs. All group stage matches will be played tomorrow, 12 April.

The quarterfinals, semifinals and the championship will be played respectively on the succeeding Saturdays. All games in the playoffs are best-of-three. The groups are as follows:

 

Group A Group B Group C Group D

Thailand VFF
Philippines Freya
Philippines >The Chosen Girls
Indonesia NXA-Gaming

Thailand Reality.Galz
Philippines Mski.Dasmarinas
Philippines Maya
Malaysia Invasion

Singapore PMS Asterisk*
Philippines Fire Vixens
Indonesia dotArt
Philippines Pcfc-IChill

Philippines FeFa
Malaysia Queens
Philippines Pcfc-Doa
International DayTimeOnly

 

Among the requirements during the registration is that the participating teams should submit the name of the LAN center/s from where they would play in. The organizer will supposedly have someone present to visually verify the gender of the players. It is a common problem on online ladies' tournaments to have an account/s suspectedly owned, or at least played by, a male.

While there have been numerous tournaments and showmatches involving all-ladies teams, there has not been anything this grand yet. The tournament offers a prize pool of $1,800, which is a massive pot when you consider that it is a Southeast-Asian tournament. The champion will get $1,000, while the second and third placer will get $500 and $300 respectively. All teams will also receive five Nature's Prophet plushies each.

With the tournament carrying the brand of AsianCyberGames, it is also rumored that a girls' tournament will take place as a side-event at the AsianCyberGames this year. ACG is usually scheduled near year-end. Dota 2 ACG was held in December in the last three years, with the first two being held in Malaysia and the most recent edition held in Singapore.
