Global Dota 2 League incoming

Dota 2 Cristy “Pandoradota2” Ramadani

Epulze has announced its Global Dota 2 League, taking place for seven regions across the world. 

With an influx of players being stuck at home and the lack of LAN events happening in esports overall, Epulze has stepped in to fill the gap and add some competitive spirit. 

The Global Dota 2 League will feature a $24,000 prize pool divided up among the seven regions: Europe, CIS-Region, South-East Asia, North America, South America, Middle East & Africa, Australia.
