We are just days away from the end of this amazing event. Even though we are yet to see who will win the OMEGA League: Europe Immortal Division, we already have news about the second season of the OMEGA League. This probably doesn’t come as a surprise as the first season was magnificent.
The event started in the middle of August and it features twelve of the best teams from EU and CIS. The prize pool for this region was $500,000, which made this one of the biggest online Dota 2 events ever.
According to the official information, the second season of this league will also have two divisions. Needless to say, we will once again see a bunch of European and CIS teams, which is always good. However, there are also some pretty notable changes.
The first one is that there won’t be twelve teams anymore. Instead, we will only have ten teams that will play in a round-robin format in the group stage. Once the group stage is over, the top four teams from each will advance to the upper bracket of the playoff. On the other hand, the teams that finish from fifth to eighth will have to battle in the play-in stage. There, they will meet teams from the lower division. Lastly, the last two teams from each group will automatically be moved to the second division.
We still have around a month to go before the actual event begins. However, we already know the names of some of the participants:
- Team Secret
- Team Nigma
- Team Liquid
As for the prize pool, we will once again have a total of $500,000 for the first division and $50,000 for the second. Of course, we will also have qualifiers, which will start on the 28th of October.
