The LAN event:

The LAN event for this tournament will take place at the International Exhibition Centre in Kiev, Ukraine on the 6th, 7th and 8th of May. At the LAN event, the eight invited teams will battle it out for the $200,000 prize pool in a best-of-three double elimination bracket with a best-of-five grand finals and a best-of-one round one for the lower bracket.

For the participating teams in the LAN event, some of the facilities Weplay will provide are flight tickets for all teams, transport costs to and from the LAN venue and airport, a practice area with five computers per team and the option to sell team merchandise.

The prize pool and coverage:

The $200,000 prize pool is a base prize pool which will be growing via crowd funding, 10% of both the league's compendium and sets will be going towards the prize pool. In addition, Weplay has promised to payout the prize money no later than three month from the LAN event.

There will be five studios - for five different language - working with Weplay to provide official game coverage; the English coverage will be provided by joinDOTA and the Russian coverage by Weplay.

  • J "sundog" J ,
    Alliance reached the finals of WePLay Season 2, but they're not even in this year's qualifiers? 4Head
  • Dejan "25cmSimpleton" Gajic ,
    Don't know the whole story but seems to me that Alliance didn't want to go through the qualifiers after not being invited, which they deserved 100%. Instead the organizers invite secret, mistake on their part and understandable reaction by [A]. (If that is what happened at all)
    • Number 1 "clariska" of Number 99 ,
      Orgs look at consistency titles won etc etc.TS has been struggling after new Meta but it kinda seems more like they have internal issues.They couldve won Alliences Easily in game 3 but they threw so hard .Even harder than old Demon.I Personally think OG shouldnt have been invited aswell....
      • Dejan "25cmSimpleton" Gajic ,
        get rekt [A] hater and GTFO!
      • no "Calcite-AW" no ,
        They didn´t threw, they got outplayed. quite easy to see :) but if they threw why did they win one game and almost 2?. it´s called bad decision making from mr. EE and w33. and also loda knowing how to play TB
    • Antivirus "lsdstoned" North ,
      Then they should have invited NaVi as well 4Head. Season 2 was in 2013, who cares
  • Sylvain "Tipiak" Soliman ,
    Too bad they didn't invite KaiPi… I think that would have been better than say Steak or AdFinem…
  • Binh "Kiritokun2906" Nguyen ,
    No China, no Alliance. GGWP.
  • chino "chicosayans" moreno ,
    fucking moonmeander, i hate that fucking face.
  • fuck "pinoyshit" pinoy ,
