Just a day after OGA PIT announce that they would host a tournament in China, it turns out that there will be an EU/CIS version as well. According to the latest announcement the tournament should arrive in mid-December and will have a prize pool of $150,000.
November was a pretty sweet month for Dota 2, with tons of tournaments in Europe and CIS. We got to see the best teams in action and now we will do so once again. Alongside OG and Alliance, we will witness Team Nigma, Na’Vi, Virtus.Pro, Vikin.gg, mudgolems, and Just Error in the upcoming event. Sadly, we won’t see Team Secret, the best team in the world right now. It seems that Puppey and his teammates decided to take a break so they can prepare for the upcoming DPC.
One thing we can’t wait for is the release of the new patch. Valve announced that 7.28 will arrive in mid-December, which means that it’s pretty likely that OGA Dota PIT Season 4: EU/CIS will become the first tournament on the new patch. Needless to say, it will be very interesting to see how the changes may impact the game.
The event itself will host a standard double-elimination format. We will have two groups, in which each series is played as a best-of-three format. Of course, the Grand Final will be Bo5.
