After 5 weeks of qualifiers in which teams were awarded points for each win, the results are in. The top 8 teams will battle it out for the $500USD prize pool in a single elimination Playoffs to conclude the first season of the American-based weekly tournaments.

United States Fire16 points
United States Blitz Organization12 points
Australia Natural 98 points

The American hope, It's Gosu, topped the qualifiers convincingly and will go into the finals as the top seed, but risk a semi-final meeting with Team N9, who are currently in top form having recently defeated Natus Vincere in The Defense.

The bottom half of the bracket sees a couple dark-horses teams with Co9.GDT and Fire who will be competing in the upcoming Infused Dota 2 tournament. These teams will also have to get past the other Australian squad, Kinect, if they are to walk away victorious.

The single elimination tournament will be best-of-1 until the grand final, where the format will shift to best-of-3. The tournament is set to kick off at 00:30 CET Saturday Night, and will be all completed in the one sitting. Be sure to place your bets here.

Additionally, there will be live streams available by GosuGamers and NeoDota TV.
