2019 MDL Macau announced

Dota 2 Cristy “Pandoradota2” Ramadani

Mars Media has announced their next big event, 2019 MDL Macau featuring a $300,000 prize pool and top teams from around the world. 

One of the most well-known and successful tournament organizers located in Shanghai, China will be hosting another LAN event early in the new year. The tournament, 2019 MDL Macau, will not be a DPC event unlike MDL Macau Minor hosted in December of 2017 which OG won or The MDL Changsha Major held just last May in which PSG.LGD claimed the title. 

Since the event is not part of the DPC, there will be only five directly invited teams and three qualified teams from China. One team will gain access through Dota2 Professional League Season 6 and the other two from China's qualifiers. 

As of now, PSG.LGD and Virtus.pro are the only two announced teams.

For this event, we will welcome eight of the finest teams in the world, and we are thrilled to announce PSG.LGD and Virtus.pro as the first two invites. As the champions of our MDL Changsha Major in last May before taking second a few months later at The International, it made perfect sense to invite PSG.LGD. They are joined by Virtus.pro, the winners of the Kuala Lumpur Major, one of the most successful and consistent teams in the world.

More information on the other invitations will be forthcoming through the upcoming weeks. 

The LAN will be held February 20-24th in Macau, China after the DreamLeague Season 11 Minor qualifiers but before the main event - filling the gap between DPC events. Despite it being held at the same time as the ESL One Katowice LAN, some of the top teams are expected to compete with a whopping $300,000 prize pool up for grabs.
