Acer is hosting a new Dota 2 tournament across Asia Pacific; offering a $150,000 prize pool. The league covers seven Asian countries, with the grand finals scheduled to be hosted in Indonesia.
The first leg of the league will feature qualifying events in each of the seven participating countries. These qualifiers are open to all, and are scheduled to begin on the weekend of 4-5 November. A second qualifying round is set to be played on 11-12 November, with the Malaysian grand finals scheduled for 25-26 November. This final includes a RM25,000 cash grand prize for the winning team.
Similar events will be taking place in Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand, the Philippines, India, and Hong Kong. However, these are not all scheduled to take place at the same time, and will instead run over the next three months until the end of January 2018.
While there has been no announcement on the date of the grand finals in Indonesia, we presume that it will take place in January.
Malaysian Dota 2 teams can sign up through this link. Which is curiously missing from the official event page. Although, it’s understandable considering that it’s being run by Acer Indonesia.
