The DotA2 tournament will also consist of 8 teams which have been invited to play in the tournament. The system of the tournament will be pretty similar to the League of Legends tournament. At the beginning we will see Best-of-1 matches and over Best-of-3 matches we will end the tournament with a Best-of-5 Grand Final.
To cover the most matches of this DotA2 tournament, we will provide two different streams like at the League of Legends tournament. On the first stream you will see The Capitalist casting and on the second stream there will be Avril casting the matches. The third placed team of the tournament will receive $100, the second placed team will get $200 and the winner will get $700.
The StarCraft 2 tournament will have a totally different system than the League of Legends and DotA2 tournaments. We invited 32 players, which will be split into 8 groups and the best two players of each group advance into the next round. In the second round the remaining 16 players will play in a Single-Elimination with Best-of-3 matches. The grand final will be a Best-of-7 match and the match for 3rd place will be Best-of-5.
The winner of the Grand Final will get $700, the second placed player will receive $200 and the third placed player will get $100. In the StarCraft 2 tournament we aren't able to stream all the matches and so we will stream the most interesting. The caster for this games will be Michael Martin on the first stream. Colin "ButterMeUp" Partridge, Chris "Evilguy13" Ivermee and Philip "Nazroth" Hübner will be casting on the second stream.
