DreamHack Announces Dota 2 ASUS ROG DreamLeague Season 1
Swedish competitive gaming powerhouse DreamHack has announced the inaugural season of a Dota 2 league, known as the ASUS ROG DreamLeague Season 1. DreamHack has partnered with ASUS Republic of Gamers, ROCCAT, TV6, and the GD Studio to produce a tournament with a base prize pool of $100,000. Similar to many other Dota 2 events, the prize pool can be increased through ticket purchases in the Dota 2 store. It will also be the first event since The International 3 to offer a compendium for purchase along with multiple tiers of rewards to be unlocked. Twelve teams will be split into three divisions with the top six overall teams heading to the live LAN finals at DreamHack Summer and the bottom team in each division forced to fight for inclusion in the next season. Games will begin next Monday and they will take place on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday during most weeks through May. English casting will be provided by the GD Studio and a Swedish stream will be provided by TV6, with more languages to be announced shortly.
