Evil Geniuses, Fnatic and OpTic Gaming to Play at DOTA Summit 9

As this year’s Dota Pro Circuit concluded in the early June with China Dota2 Supermajor, currently everyone awaits The International 2018 and there are almost no Dota 2 events out there. DOTA Summit 9 is one of the few LAN-events that are being held ahead of TI8. And we finally have the complete list of participating teams, as the organizers have revealed all invited teams and the only regional qualifier has concluded in Europe.

DOTA Summit 9 will be held on July 25-29 in Los Angeles, United States. It will feature six teams, five of them received direct invites from the organizers, among them are Evil Geniuses, VGJ.Storm, Fnatic, OpTic Gaming and paiN Gaming. It should me mentioned that all of these teams will also take part in The International 2018. The last participant of Summit 9 was determined by Summer Cup 2018, an online qualifier tournament sponsored by GG.Bet with 14 European teams. In the grand final Let’s Do It (ex-Team Kinguin) defeated Wind and Rain (3:2), securing the final place at Summit 9. Although the tournament begins in two weeks, we still don’t know its format and prize pool.
