After a very successful first season, the XMG Captain's Draft returns once again on October 31st. The tournament features eight of the strongest teams of the West, battling over the initial $50,000 prizepool, boosted by the sales of the tournament's promotional items.

The fans of Western DotA2 will have the chance to enjoy yet another tournament that uses the uncommon Captain's Draft Mode. The XMG CD Invitational will be returning later this October for its second season. Eight teams from Europe and America will attempt to claim the throne of Fnatic, the winner of the previous season.

Ukraine Natus Vincere
United States Evil Geniuses
Belarus Power Rangers
Sweden Alliance
Europe Team Tinker
Europe Secret Team
Russia Virtus.pro
Europe Fnatic

XMG CD #2 boasts a $50,000 starting prizepool, a massive increase compared to last season's $20,000. A special Compendium for the tournament and a hero set will also be available for purchase, with a percentage of their sales being added to the total prizepool.

The tournament is scheduled to commence on October 31st, at 17:30 CET. Live broadcasting of the tournament will be provided by DotaCinema.

There's really not much to say about Andreas 'drouks' Stavridakis, except that he sleeps two hours a day, plays the guitar and survives solely on Diet Coke. He also writes about DotA sometimes.
