The local scene will be represented by Alpha Red. Earlier the organizers invited Team Secret, who are currently sitting at the third place of Dota Pro Circuit Rankings with 4710 qualification points and are undoubtedly the favourites of the tournament.
The format of the main event hasn’t been announced yet. At GESC: Indonesia Dota2 Minor the teams were divided into two GSL groups, with top two teams from each group advancing to the single-elimination playoffs bracket. In the grand finals Evil Geniuses defeated VGJ.Thunder 2-0, receiving $110,000 in prize money and 150 DPC Points.
