The traditionally western competition InsideDOTA Challenge is about to land on SEA, with a brand new invitational for the region. The tournament will take place from April 27th through May 3rd, featuring eight local challengers and a boosted $5000 prizepool.

After a rather successful European tourney earlier this month, InsideDOTA Challenge returns with a bigger bounty, ready to be claimed by some of SEA's best. Eight teams have accepted the invitation and are ready for an action-packed week, hoping to claim the largest share of $5000. The online competition will span from April 27th through May 3rd, and all the matches will be held on Singaporean servers.

InsideDOTA Asia Challenge invited teams :

Philippines Mineski
Malaysia G-Guard
Singapore 5eva
Thailand Signature.Trust
Malaysia Underminer
Malaysia Invasion
Philippines Arcanys Gaming
Australia Can't Say Wips 

According to our sources, Team MY's invitation was rejected due to scheduling conflicts with other competitions such as StarLadder XII and Red Bull Battlegrounds.

The eight participants will be placed in a standard double-elimination bracket, filled with BO3 matches for the Upper Bracket and BO1 matches for the Lower (the LB final and grand final are exceptions, being BO3 and BO5 respectively). The games will take place between 13:00 CET and 19:00 CET each day.

The tournament will be streamed by RasmusTV and EmCup TV on Hitbox.

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.
