Dota 2 Cristy “Pandoradota2” Ramadani

Pinnacle and Relog Media will be hosting the Pinnacle Cup Dota 2 online event featuring 12 EU/CIS teams competing for the $100,000 prize pool. 

Last month Pinnacle brought together 32 CS:GO teams fighting for the lion’s share of the $80,000 prize pool. Now, partnered with Relog Media, they bring the second iteration of Pinnacle Cup to life featuring 12 of the top Dota 2  teams from EU/CIS regions battling for the $100,000 prize pool. 

After a fantastic start to the Pinnacle Cup, we are delighted to carry on this series with Relog Media, expanding further into the esports ecosystem. The heart of what we do at Pinnacle is engaging with the esports community, and with the introduction of The Pinnacle Cup – Dota we plan to deepen that connection with the wider esports audience. 

There is no better way for us to continue this journey, than branching out into Dota 2, where we can continue offering fans the best connection to their favourite esports teams and players. We are ambitious and excited for what this event can offer and look forward to continuously setting the standard for these type of events.

-Paris Smith, CEO of Pinnacle


With the help of data partner Relog Media, Pinnacle will be offering a comprehensive selection of both pre-game and live betting markets, with low margin odds giving customers unrivaled value. The two will also work together to utilise the available technology to support the broadcast experience and fan-facing content with data-driven additions.

As passionate Dota 2 players at Relog Media, it’s an absolute pleasure to dive into the Dota 2 community with Pinnacle alongside us. We hope this is just the start of our offerings to the competitive teams across the globe. Pinnacle’s track record and success in Esports so far made it an easy decision for us to go forwards. We also had a ton of fun in the CSGO edition of The Pinnacle Cup. A proud day for us all here at Relog Media.

-Milutin Pecic, Relog Media CEO
