Australian Esports group Mogul have confirmed the Dota 2 Alliance League will be taking place and announced that they will be partnering up with Esports organisation Alliance. The Australian Esports tournament platform confirmed the launch of the Dota 2 Alliance League tournament series and a prize-pool of over $100,000 that will be up for grabs.
Alliance, probably most famous for winning The International 3, first confirmed their partnership with Mogul back in May when the Esports team launched an official membership scheme. The scheme gives fans access to exclusive team-content and opportunities to compete and win prizes. The prizes even include 1 on 1 coaching sessions with Alliance players. Alliance’s involvement is no doubt going to attract players to the inaugural Dota 2 Alliance League along with the decent sized prize pool.
CEO of Alliance, Jonathan ‘Loda’ Berg had this to say during a press release following the announcements: “The Alliance League will give our fans the chance to improve their skills alongside the team, attend a 1-on-1 coaching session, win huge prizes and go in the draw to meet the team and see us play. The new membership offering and tournament series will allow us to continue to create a lasting Esports legacy while supporting tomorrow’s best players and all of the fans who have supported us on our journey.”
The Dota 2 Alliance League will be open to players and teams from Europe and Southeast Asia. The tournament format will consist of quarterly qualifier seasons over the next year before the Alliance Majors finale which will take place at some point in 2020. The global prize-pool will total over $100,000 and will see the top team in each region taking home a minimum prize of $25,000.
Registration for the Dota 2 Alliance League Season 1 Qualifier 1 is now open for Alliance members and will kick off on August 30th. Chief Strategy and Commercial Officer of Mogul Jamie Skella added “Mogul is thrilled to have built a state-of-the-art ladder system and membership feature technology for Alliance and other partners across the globe to utilise. These allow fans to experience centralised content, exclusive offerings and connect with their favourite teams on a competitive level.”
Dota 2 fans will be looking forward to keeping track of the tournament proceedings and will certainly be keeping a keen eye out on who will be heading to the finale next year.
