Dota Summit 9 Announced
Beyond the Summit studio announced its ninth Dota 2 event – Dota Summit 9, which will take place in July.
The founder of Beyond the Summit and a well-known commentator David "GoDz" Parker explained in his post on Reddit that Summit 9, unlike Summit 8, won’t be part of Dota Pro Circuit. It will also be held somewhere in July, with the last DPC event – China Dota2 Supermajor – taking place in the beginning of June. It means that the tournament will be held in the time when on the one hand the teams will have a lot of free time, but on the other hand – they will be preparing for The International 2018.
The previous DotaSummit event was held on December 13-17 in Los Angeles and was part of Dota Pro Circuit as a minor tournament. In the grand finals Virtus.pro defeated Fnatic 1-3, becoming the champions of DotaSummit for the third time in a row.
