Dota 2 ONE Esports Singapore Major Announced
The ONE Esports World Pro Invitational in Singapore is currently underway. So, it is convenient for PGL and ONE Esports to announce that they’ll be hosting the ONE Esports Singapore Major!
All About the ONE Esports Singapore Major
The tournament takes place June 20-28 at the Singapore Indoor Stadium (the same venue that’s currently in use for the Invitational). Sixteen teams will duke it out for a $1 million prize pool along with 15,000 DPC points.
Much like with any other Major, the Group Stage will be played in a GSL Format with all games being Best of 3. As we move on to the Playoffs, teams will clash in a double-elimination format (the standard Upper and Lower bracket style), with the Grand Finals being Best of 5.
In partnership with @pglesports, we're extremely excited to announce the ONE Esports Singapore Major!— ONE Esports ?#ONEDota2 (@oneesportsgg) December 18, 2019
Taking place in Singapore on June 20-28, 2020 at the Singapore Indoor Stadium, the Singapore Major will be the last Major before TI10 ?#ONEDota2 #Singaporemajor #dpc #TI10
For the teams competing at the major in June, this will be a “do or die” moment. Winning it will grant them a direct ticket to The International and placing as high as possible is of the utmost importance. You can expect a ton of high-octane action, and some of the most insane top-tier play of the year.
With so much on the line, teams are bound to play without any reserve. Just a single win can be the difference between locking down a ticket for TI and waiting things out on the sidelines.
The Dota Pro Circuit 2019/2020
Finally, the Dota Pro Circuit 2019/2020 is shaping up nicely. The MDL Chengdu Major is still fresh in everyone’s mind, the DreamLeague Season 13 In Leipzig takes place in mid-January and the ESL One Los Angeles 2020 goes down in March.
With the announcement of the ONE Esports Singapore Major, we know the locations and organizers of four out of five Majors. There’s still one on May 2 that’s shrouded in mystery. But, seeing how the majority of the season is already public knowledge, we expect that one to be revealed sooner rather than later.
The ONE Esports Singapore Major will be the last big tournament of the 2019/2020 Dota Pro Circuit and will lead us directly into TI10. The most recent Outlanders update ushered in a different kind of meta, which, in turn, affected competitive play as well.
How will things develop over the next couple of months? We will have to wait and see. In the meantime, check out the ONE Esports Invitational. If anything, it gives us an early look at the best teams that competitive Dota has to offer.
