Dota 210 years agoGosu "GosuGamers" Gamers to host Bounty Hunter Asia special

HitBox announces Bounty Hunter Asia Special as it moves to Asia with a more traditional styled format rather than King of the Hill structure.

The next installation of The BountyHunter Series has been announced. The tournament is changing locations from Europe to Asia, specifically the Oceanic Region. The tournament will also be changing format from a King of the Hill style to a traditional double elimination format. The tournament will take place from June 19th to June 24th.

The team pool is comprised of eight invited teams from the region who will battle for a prize pool set at $2,500.  Tickets are on sale in the Dota 2 store for an in-client viewing experience. The ticket also comes bundled with the RaiQ custrom courier as an added bonus.  

The tournament will be a good indicator of what to expect from the teams representing the region at Valve's The International in July. The winner of the Oceanic Regions TI4 Qualifiers, Arrow Gaming, are among the names of the invited teams as well as the regions runner-up team, MVP.Phoenix.  Here is the full list of invited teams:

Malaysia Arrow Gaming
Thailand MiTH.Trust
Philippines Mineski
Korea Pokerface
Singapore Scythe
Australia Team Immunity
Indonesia Zero Latitude
Malaysia Invasion eSports

UPDATE : MVP.Phoenix will be replaced by Pokerface. The MVP management informed the tournament administration that they will be unable to participate due to other commitments. 

The new format will have best-of-three matches in the winners bracket, best-of-one matches in the losers bracket followed by a best-of-three in the loser bracket finals and best-of-five in the grand finals. The BountyHunter Series channel will be broadcasting the event in English, featuring casting talent Jonathan "Pimpmuckl" Liebig. The event will also be cast in Russian, Spanish, Malaysian and German.
