Omega League brings nearly $600k to the table

Dota 2 Cristy “Pandoradota2” Ramadani

Omega League has been formed in collaboration with top teams, WePlay! Esports and Epic Esports Events featuring $600,000 prize pool. 

Alliance, Team Liquid, Natus Vincere, Ninjas in Pyjamas, OG, Team Secret, and Virtus.pro have united with WePlay! Esports and EPic Esports Events to launch the Omega League with a $600,000 USD prize pool available over two regions and four divisions.

WePlay! Esports will handle English production while the RuHub will take the Russian side of things. The event will run from July 20 beginning with the Open Qualifiers and conclude September 6.

The suspension of the DPC has thrown our competitive scene into a sort of twilight zone populated by an array of small tournaments making it very taxing on players, and hard for fans to engage emotionally.

We decided to work together as a coalition of organizations, driven by our commitment to the fans, our love for this game, and the will to create a more sustainable competitive ecosystem around DotA 2. OMEGA LEAGUE is the first tournament coming from this partnership and everyone involved has poured their hearts into making it worthy of those mythical weeks in August.

We've found fantastic partners in Epic Esports Events and WePlay! Esports, both willing to commit to the higher level of integration that's required to reach the quality fans have come to expect from Major-level tournaments. OMEGA LEAGUE is our first large-scale initiative towards a more sustainable DotA 2 scene. Together we hope to breathe new life into the highest tiers of DotA 2 competition, and we can't wait to show the world what we've been building.

We are excited about the future of the DPC, and we're committed to supporting Valve and the rest of the ecosystem in their efforts to make competitive DotA better for fans, players, and partners alike.
